Hey gang! I'm looking for a little advice. I'll be getting a new boat here pretty soon. It will be a jon boat and I'm looking at Alumacrafts. From my research, most brands look pretty much the same with the same size boats having similar options, similar hull thickness, similar hp ratings, similar weight capacities, etc. The one difference I've found is Alumacrafts are at least an 1" taller on the sides. Anyway, I know with the 1448 I get alot more boat for not a whole lot more money. If I go with the 1448 over the 1436, will I lose much in terms of draft and ability to make it up & down a river? I'll be fishing some pretty skinny water and need to make it through some riffle areas. Will a 6-inch narrower & 130 lb lighter boat make that much of a difference?
