The Tjet Luxor is a great boat for the money. It will bounce in the chop and the wind can play havoc with you while drifting or trolling because it is so light compared to glass. As long as you're prepared for that type of stuff you'll be just fine. I've ridden in one and dang near bought one myself last spring. My only problem with them was the closest dealership to Olympia was down in portland since auburn closed down "supposedly."
