I will be retiring soon and want to purchase a new boat. After researching several brands I have settled on a Sea Ark but am a little confused on the degrees of the hull as far as handling rough water. I have an older 16 foot Jon with a 35 horsepower motor w/tiller steering. I am looking at a Rivercat CX200 side console but I am told they have a 3 degree hull. I will be fishing the Mississippi and Missouri rivers and several large lakes in Missouri. I am lookinf for an all around boat. I was told by Sea Ark if I wanted a 15 degree hull I should be looking at their Pro V line. I am wanting an aluminum boat because of the rocks and gravel bars. Can anyone that owns a Pro V or a Rivercat give me some advice? This will probably be the last boat I buy and I want it to last.
