    I have a 2006 alumacraft jon set up with stick steering and a 25 tohatsu with t&t . I have a guy offer ing a a j-14 that looks new . For fishing small river in georgia and maybe a trip to lake walter f george . what would you guy recommend. I like the alumacraft other than the bench seats. Would the carolina skiff cut down on my speed or be too heavy to manuever around sandbars.
    thanks

    I hate weight...it would take a powerful incentive for me to go fat.

    After owning fiberglass and aluminum ..... for river fishing it's aluminum all the way. It's tougher, lighter, and I feel more safe beaching an aluminum boat than I did the glass boat. Every year I was touching up some area of the glass boat from damage due to the river bottom or beaching on an island.
