Depends on what kind of TM, Battery, age of said Battery and condition of the trailer. Not sure why this boat has a trailer anyway...

The more I look at available boats out there, the less inclined I am to buy this. I was primarily looking at it for the small little lakes around Monterey that aren't big enough to warrant an outboard. But if I saved another $500, I could get a significantly larger and better boat that can mount an outboard.

I like this one for the way its set up and the size to match up with the waters out there, but if I wanted to go to Dale Hollow or something, I would need an outboard.

Copy that. Yea, the pricetag, seats, and motor were eye candy.. But its prob not the right direction to go in. 14-16 foot VHull with a live well and motor mount is probably the best way, even out there--- where 80 MPH winds don't pop up out of nowhere.

I just need to save up for a few months and buy the right thing.

I've seen a guy catch some big Lakers in one of those things..he leaned way over off the side of the boat. He leaned so far it made me nervous for him. But dude never went swimming and I think he could troll his lines better than me in the canoe. He could also carry it solo which I thought was cool.

This is the perfect boat. Just outside the ol' price range. I think I need to look for something like this when I get there, though.

Boat, trailer, fish finder, 2 seats, outboard, and trolling motor.

Thats not worth the money. For $1800 it should come with a gas motor... Something like this:
