Based on my 98 CQ 23 here are my recommendations based on your use of the boat:
No matter what:
Even if your cruising, the fishing package might be a good choice as the coaming bolsters are nice and the additional gunnel rod holders come in handy for the occasional table or portable barbeque.

The 23 conquest is a beutiful boat, not too small and not too big. The fit and finish is nice and the hard top is very nice. I have been eye balling this one. As for the price it sounds like its in the ball park. I give 2 thumbs up on this one!

Check out the fish boxes. Is there a pump out or do you have to get the fishing package to get the pump? Don't rely on the drain plugs you are to pull out when underway. They drain ok that way, but what about the rain water that gets into the boxes while docked over several days?
A little thing but one that can be a pain.

Cappy - If this is an in-stock boat, then you're going to take the options it came with. However, if you're going to order a new one, suggestions based on my 2005 235CQ are:
* 250 Verado and hardtop
Please don't get me wrong, these are just my opinions based on my situation. GREAT boat.

The advisability of the cockpit cover depends on where you live, I guess. Here in the Bay area, we have long stretches of sunny, hot days. During those months I use my cockpit cover exclusively since it does the job keeping the cockpit clean and I can remove it and install it in less than a minute. If I had my weather curtains up, I'd be rolling up the rear and front sections(or removing them entirely) just to get a breeze going when underway.

Buy a good used 22-25' Revenge with Yamaha's. Half the money and twice the boat!
