I'm looking for a river boat, we have two fiberglass boats(by we I mean my parents and grandparents) and I want a aluminum boat I cant take out on the Missouri since they don't want theirs out there. I'd like to have something around 18 ft since I'm probably only goin to catfish out of it and use their boats on the lakes to crappie fish and what have you. My price range is goin to be around 15k and I want to Brand new one from the dealer, I am tired of messing with used crap. I don't have to have a big motor just something that will handle the muddy missouri. With this price range what brands should I be looking at and what should I shy away from? I'd like the driver and passenger seat to spin also, my friends old boat had that nice feature and I can't remember what brand it was. I'm around columbia and go to warsaw some so those areas are probably where Ill be looking at boats. Thanks for any info.
