The fish don't know it's raining. :lol: Heck, I have had times I caught more fish in the rain. Besides, all the fair weather fishermen head for the dock leaving me all the good spots!

If you are going to spend that kind of money,you might as well get to top of the line. I also bought it for the seat as I have a back problem sometimes. It is a little more stable on the coast.

I would hazard to guess the PA-14 is slightly faster owing to a longer water line....but, why would you "speed" since most trolling speeds in lakes and rivers is 1.5 to 2.2 mph?
My PA-14 is ideal for lakes and rivers in Oregon....I think the "hull speed" is under 5 mph.
