JUST RIGHT: This console is the perfect size-big enough to mount a combo unit and stow trolling-motor batteries without sacrificing wiggle room on a hot fish. And after the whopper is aboard, ice him down in the 94-quart flip-back cooler seat.
DRUM BEAT: Part of the SWS test crew gets in on the game with a good-looking redfish plucked from a pothole.
SLIDE INSIDE: Port and starboard bow storage lockers reach all the way to the anchor bulkhead, a welcome modification for long or odd-shaped items, such as stick gaffs, fly-rod cases or a sand-flea rake.
CAST-AWAY: Browbeaten into taking the two brothers-in-law? Stick them on the fore and aft raised decks and take refuge in the middle, away from flying lures-there's plenty of room.
SMOOTH OPERATOR: With its 15-degree transom deadrise and sleek bottom design, the 211 is as dry as a desert and rides softer than most shallow-draft boats.
HEAVY METAL: Solid hardware is standard, including stainless-steel garboard drain plugs and through-hulls with seacocks below the waterline.
TROPHY TRUNK: Tourney anglers should opt for the release well on the aft casting deck. It's roomy enough to keep the winning fish cozy until weigh-in.
