i have a 78 v hull boat 14 ft long with 6 hp motor. will this boat be sufficient at the np if they are discharging as i have only been there 1 time and the plant was down. im more worried about the water being to ruff than anything as i dont have a bilge pump and my motor is kinda weak, reliable but small. any comments will be apreciated as i like aprox 75 miles from SI and i want to take my 8 yr old son up there to catch a good cat, cause where we fish here in ga they only get about 3-6 lbs with a few rare 9-10 lbs and i think he would flip out and be hooked if he caught a big ol cat. thank you to all that post.
