I am looking to buy a boat here in the near future, and I love to fish lakes, streams,rivers, oh what the heck; any hole that might hold a decent fish I'd fish it. I know I can find a boat that is like a s.u.v. that does it all. For rivers what's the smallest boat would I want to put on there and feel suceure at night? On a big lake or reservior I want to be able to get from A-B-Z, and not be turned side ways be a bigger boat knocking me over with it's big waves. On smalller streams off big rivers I want to be able to go up and not get stuck. So I guess in a nut shell I am asking what is a good size welded alum. boat that can do it all and I feel secure in it with me and my friends and family, but enough know how to do what ever I want it to do. Size, Power, Length, Width.
