Ifa person was going to buy a boat soon,that person being me,what should he buy? My girl is stuck on the pontoon idea. I think they are ok. I was wanting a bay style boat like a boston whaler,you know center console fiberglass,self bailing. I also dream of a big crestliner or lund. Even a lowe or alumacraft deep v. Just not sure which way to go. I like being able to go shallow,but don't want an a$$ kicking on rough water. I like fishing in the trees,so aluminum sounds good, Pontoon or v hull? Tell me what kind of boat you have,maybe some pics to show the woman. Honestly,in the end I will probably end up with the toon. This is a last ditch effort to persuade her. I already have a flat bottom for running lines and jugs,so this is not a consideration for the new boat.
