    Falcon F195

    I was thinking of getting a Falcon F195 but was wondering how you liked yours. I noticed the beam is 93.5 on the website, do you find that to be an issue? Smaller than most competitors

    I still enjoy mine. Good, solid boat. 93.5" beam is smaller than what? 19'4" Nitro is 94". 20'7" Gambler is 93.5". Seems to me like it varies, and no I haven't found a ~94" beam to be a problem.

    The 195 seems to carry that beam farther forward. Don’t think you will have an issue with the deck size

    They are much narrower than the 20ft F205. If at all possible look at getting the F205. It has the largest deck in the game.

    Does the way the front rod locker flip up bother you? How’s the build quality of the boat?

    The rod lockers flipping up were part of what sold me on the boat -- I enjoy the access when the boat is in the shop and I need access to the rods. I'm going into year 2 of ownership and so far no issues with the boat.

    So when fishing and you go in locker it isn’t an issue with rods on deck?

    Is there any known issues with the hull or trailer?

    No, they stay on deck -- that's generally the idea with the direction they open in.

    I haven't had any. Had the pleasure of running into some silly wake boat wakes as well, and she handled them just fine.
