Re: Researching used boats
Keep in mind that Colorado is some days very windy. I didn't grasp that when I got my 14' aluminum. I'm sure glad I didn't think about "economy" and buy anything smaller. Some of the reservoirs here will generate 3 foot breakers, and it might have been a flat calm when you set out earlier.
If you power your boat with trolling motor & batteries, you've got a different situation than if you're putting a gas engine on. Which are you going after?
