    CHARGER DECK SIZES

    Heres a little better pic of deck sizes,these are all inside carpet to carpet.The 596 ,496,396,186 are still bigger than some of the newer 2013 models coming out
    from other company's.Plus remember the top cap on the the 6 series is around 5 inches wide.Most of the other brands are around 1 inch to 2 inch wide depending on brand.596 is 21'9",496 is 20'6",396 is 19'9",186 is 18'6"...797 is 21'3"The 797 is one of the largest fishing platforms on the market,the only one bigger is the z9 by a inch or so on deck size.Also the 496 and 596 and 797 are any v6 rated.





    These are inside carpet to carpet measurements


    *The 797 carries the 80 inch inside all the way past the consoles.
    *The 596 has 5 inches in front of console that is not carpet,but is flat.This make the total deck 105
    Beam on the 797, 496, 596 and 396 is right at 96 inches +/- one inch

    Heres a update on the 797 deck size
    Edge of carpet 2 ft back 59"
    Edge of carpet 3 ft back 651/2"
    Total deck length 105 carpet to carpet

    The 396,496,596 is 20 inches wide between consoles

    Update the 596 /496/396
    bottom width hull is right at 87/88 inches
    beam is right at 96 across cap.
    trolling motor pedal is about 50 inch +/- 2 inch depending on your mount and you can move it all the way forward.
    seat is right at 57/60 inch depending on hole.
    Front deck ,396 is 95 inches 596 is 106 inches depending on model.
    Console is 75 inch on 396/496 73inch on 596
    rear deck is 78x51 on 396/496 and 78x62 on 596
    seat room from console is 37/38 inches.
    rod box is 15 inch deep at rear and 13 inch at front
    and 23 inches wide and will hold 30+ rods x 2 .
    Hull depth (knife) is 45 inches ,most bass boats are 15-24 inches .
    12 inch fish finder mount for bow and console.
    The deck looks small because of the point but is actually wider than most.Optical illusion.
    Looking at Cougar/puma Charger 6 series are 5 inches wider and 15 inches longer on deck.
    Compare this to other brands and you will find that Charger sells alot of boat for less money.

    Heres the Elite 210

    Does the 496 have 2 lids like the 396 in the center of the front deck? If so why does the above pics only show 1 deck lid in the center?
