run-n-gun, I would definitely say they're worth the money. I bought my first War Eagle 4 months ago and it is the best handling aluminum boat I've ever driven. And I've driven quite a few (Lowe, Express, Landau, etc.). I've almost thrown myself out of the boat a couple times because I was so used to driving my old Lowe which slid quite a bit. This War Eagle just sticks it....hard! :hammering:
I hunt the Arkansas River a lot and 35 mph winds with 3.5' waves are common during duck season. I took it out in similar conditions earlier this spring and it handled those waves like a champ.
It also makes one heckuva beer drinking platform which is what we were doing when this picture was taken. :laughing: :laughing:
