No I haven't been to Mahoney's yet. That's where I got my Ride 135. I've been checking out all the vids and reviews for the Tarpon 120 and the Jacksons. I like the Cruise 12 a lot. I really just want a stripped down river boat. Carry 2 rods and a plano box. The Ride is rigged for the lakes, when I paddled up river at the Kingsport spot it was really tough for me. The guy in the Tarpon 120 had a much easier time.
I'll go to Mahoney's this weekend.
P.S. I'm available as a float partner anytime. Got a Silverado so transport is easy.
