Folks, I have been looking lots at boats & am getting ready to pull the trigger. I have been wanting a boat that I can use out in the chuck, & also in the lakes around home. Something that I can have fun with the family on summer days. I want to be able to take my boat up to Haida Gwaii when I take the family up there for summer holidays. I wont be to far off shore, but still want to be able to handle the chop. As you will see below I have been mostly looking at welded aluminum boats due to seeing the abuse they can take at the lodges & keep on going. I have a couple boats that I have been looking at & would like your feed back. Also any recommendations you may have. The first boat is below: https://nanaimo.craigslist.ca/boa/d/2015-river-hawk-pro-aluminum/6253215831.html The second boat is a larger brother to the one above: http://www.mpmercury.com/2017-rh-aluminum-boats-20-super-pro-v-inventory.htm?id=1382161&in-stock=1 Lastly, is this boat: This one seems like it would be good for the family as well. http://www.mpmercury.com/2016-bayliner-element-f18-inventory.htm?id=1143224&in-stock=1 Thank you for taking the time to look & give me your feed back. You have much more experience then I do & value your input.
