    Congrats on the boat and new motors.It don't take a fancy boat to catch fish.I've had several Kinds of boats over the years fiberglass ski boat,fiberglass b@ss boat,aluminum deep V and many jon boats.The fish didn't seem to mind what kind it was.I like my 16' Richline and I think you will yours,as you said you had one before.Good luck and tight lines.
