He also suggested a small 6 HP motor for it. and all together with the motor and boat it would be $1,500. Does this sound like a good deal? And how fast will a 6 HP motor go? I read in the brouchure and it said person weight limit and it said 3/325. Does that mean that all together that there cant be more then 325lbs on the boat? That must mean 3 100lb little kids must be driving the boat. This means I wouldnt even be able to take my dad....Can I go over that limit?
what type of waters are you looking to fish with this boat?
Thats what it all comes down to...
River? Pond? Lake?
All of the above?
You want something that can take a beating too...some smaller boats would not be fun to ride in on a bigger lake when the wind gets a howling...
How much are you looking to spend? Would you be willing to finance one?
