The Bayshore Sportsman 20 is versatile: she sports a much larger cockpit area and the floor is five inches lower than in the Carolina Bay 20. The Sportsman 20 has a bench seat or leaning post behind the console, so passengers are not sitting `on` the back of the boat like a flats layout, but `in` the boat like more traditional center consoles. She also has a molded-in bench seat forward. This boat sports a 30-gallon livewell in the stern, and the covered bow area still has plenty of room as a standup casting platform. The whole family can go out in this one.
