Finally, my dad has been looking towards getting another boat. We have a small 12' jon boat and a 15' river hawk (it is not a heavy-duty version and is shaped like a canoe almost). We have a low budget (sister goes to college at UNC, and I will probably go to a big college also), so it has to be under 8000 I suppose, completely rigged. What do you guys recommend? We want a jon-boat, and my dad has arthritis in his shoulders and back, so he can't use a tiller, so we need a steering console. We need one that isn't too tippy and we could stand up in or possible walk. I might add, we are big men! I am 5'11, 250 pounds (was a linemen in football) and my dad is about 6'4, 270 pounds. We are considering a 14' Lowe Big Jon, with a side-console. Sound good? Thanks.
