 I like shoalwater boats. the skout and above boat are 2 different types though. look at how you want your storage, hole shot, draft, hp max, person capacity, and accessories. if i had to choose between the 2 i would go with the shoalwater- Dargel doesn't do it for me.  I just prefer other hull designs, but to each his own.

I cannot comment on the Shoalwater, other than to say they sure appear to be solid boats.  However, I have owned a Dargel 190GS for the last couple of years (sold it in January).  Please let me know if I can answer any questions regarding Dargels.

I haven't fished a Dargel but the Shoalwater is definately a good boat.  My brother n law has owned one for the past couple years and except for the mercury on the back the boat is great.  We fish four out of it easily, and have enough room for three people to store their wading gear (donut, boots, etc.)  The only downfall I can find is that the single bait well in the back corner can be a pain in the a** with four people.  As far as fishing skinny water it is great we normally run into about 6" and drift with ease.  His boat is a 97 and the hull still seems to be in great shape so I would recommend a Shoalwater.
