I am extremely happy with my Basscat Cougar Advantage Elite. The setup and the deck layout suits the way I like to fish and everywhere you look there is storage, storage, storage! It has the most storage space out of any other boat I have owned. Access to mechanical components such as live well pumps, batteries is never a hassle with the design ensuring ease of access. The finish, both inside and out, of the the boat is an extremely high standard. The design of the trailer suits both fresh water or saltwater use and it tows like a dream. From it's stable platform to fish from and it's smooth ride I have never felt more comfortable and safe while travelling at speed in the Cougar. It is not until you get into one of these boats that you realise how far Bass Cat Boats have come with the design and handling and I could not see myself in anything other than a Bass Cat. Do yourself a favour and 'Feel the Rush' of a Bass Cat before you purchase anything else!
