The color may give the camera fits, but the boat looks even better in the water.
It may be slower, and may blows around more than your other boats, but I bet it is easier to load and handle. Sounds to me like you met your goals pretty well. I like it.

Cruises pretty good at a little less than 3.5 mph.

When folks get in a hurry they attach a motor :roll: ,

Yeah, I know, Chuck. Just spoiled I guess. Those folks attach a motor then a bigger motor, and a bigger motor and pretty soon you get what I saw on the Amite River.......... 40 ft sleek cigarette boat with FOUR 300 hp outboards ! :shock:
Now, just how many more fish can you catch having four 300hp motors on the back of your boat? :roll:

There is nothing I enjoy as much as getting into a back country lake that no other boat can get into , especially the big bass boats. Those lakes are some fishing hotspots since they never see a artificial plug or fly and the bottom of my boat looks like a log. All wood natural finished none of that glitter stuff most fishing boats have on them.
Several of the lakes I like to go to there has been only one time , on one lake , another boat was there and it was an air boat and some guys out for a ride.

When you can get a fish on every second or third cast you know you are in the right spot. One little mud puddle ( that is what a lot of folks think of it being ) is a hot spot for bream , red breasts and blue gills. Flip a fly out by the Lilly pads and it will not sit there to long before a fish takes it.

There is a lot to be said for a boat you can pick up and take where ever you want it to go. :D
