There are many reasons why I like the Helen-H better than the others (all are very good) I like less travel time on the water especially if the sea is snotty. I would rather spend the extra hours driving in my car. One of the best things about the Helen-H is that the captain will not purposely beat your brains in. He will not sail if it is really bad whereas I have been on the other boats in ten foot seas. Good fishing.
