What is your Dream Great Lakes boat?

I have been kicking around the idea of finally buying my dream boat for the Great Lakes. North River Sea Hawk OS with Honda power.
It has been on my short list for many years. What is your dream boat?

Pretty sweet looking boat right there. Don't know much about them but it looks solid.

It would have to be a stout boat for the great lakes prob atleast 19' at a minimum, deep v and the wider the better . Atleast 100 horses on the outboard prob with a 9.9 or similar kicker for trolling. Canopy would be mandatory prob an enclosure, as well as marine radio. Two to four elec downriggers, and a built in fish cleaning station. If im spending this much already you can bet the electronics would be high end too.

This one:



Would have to ad some Big Jon riggers, some serious rod holders and some planer masts. But it's about my ideal starting platform.

Does each new boat come equipped with such a beautiful female mate?

I hope she's good with setting the downriggers and knows her way around a fillet knife!

If it was staying up there I would get a Grady White 258 Journy or a 300 Marlin! Both great boats to fish off of.

Fished a bunch of times from a 27 foot 454 Cruiser on Erie and Ontario. My buddy is a captain on Erie. He runs a 30 footer with twin 350's. I think he still has that boat.
