Jcanracer, thanks for your reply. Glad to hear sport is just as stable as outback. I only do estuary fishing. I don't take too much fishing gear either, just the basics, which of course includes a small esky.
and I do use the anchor. And have found myself always using the rear rod holders in the outback, so a good point, I won't miss them in the sport. The new 2014 sport looks good, with a sleeker front and bigger hatch. I don't use the one in the outback as I find it too hard to reach while on the water.
