i have an 83 gator now but i think the foam in the hull is waterlogged. i want to buy a jonboat and switch all my stuff over ,43#minn kota ,bige pump , rod holders and so forth. i like the idea of "usable space". my boat now is 15'. I was thinking a 16' jonboat would be a good idea . how stable would that be as far as kids in the boat, landing big fish, not so smooth waters, stumps and well you get the picture. also how big a motor can it handle. i'm new here and i really enjoy how everyone helps each other out and its very educational.
