This topic is of interest because I was in the exact same frame of mind as you are. So, two years ago I went to Portland Oregon and went to about 8 or 9 different dealerships. I actually test drove a Thunderjet Luxor and a 22 ft Ocean Pro. The problem with testing out there is it is on a river which is pretty calm. I believe the Thunderjet is much nicer with respect to fit and finish. I liked the OP too but it wasn't finished as well.
I really liked the Duckworths and also the Alumawelds. The Kingfisher and the Raider are the least well appointed with respect to fit and finish. I ended up buying a like new Parker 232 SL, from a person in western PA. It saved me about $30k. It is a wide open platform. the sides are a little low so I used my traxstech to raise it up. it is heavy also, and a little less convenient to haul around, but it is still definitely a go anywhere boat. I also was aboard a Steigercraft in Maryland and I don't think it is on par with the Parker.....
I would like to know what you end up getting, so keep us posted.
PS. I still have a hankering for the Thunderjet, and maybe someday???
