How would this boat compare to a Eagle 16v with sport jet?

I've been in love with the 16v sj since I saw a video of one years ago. I've never seen up up here. The boat in the above post is the only eagle boat I've seen for sale up here. Would this be a good starter boat? I'm used to running flat bottom outboard jets.

I'm also interested in minis, but those might be a little small for me. I'd like to be able to fish out of the boat, and use it to go to the cabin for the weekend.

Sport jet might be a bit more forgiving in the shallows. However if you have been pushing outboards around with success you will love the little v-8, hang on, you just make your decisions faster. sharpens your water reading skills.

I used to have a Jetcraft Extreme Shallow, it had a sport jet in it. It was fun, roomy, great throttle response. Big and heavy when you got it stuck. It wasn't really built to take abuse though.

What type of bottom does this Outlaw Sprint have? Similar to the Eagle Sports?
