Been a while. Ever get yourself a boat??Thanks for the input, Loggy. I don't think I'm willing to spring the cash for the Roughneck line. Looking pretty strongly at their 1640 Jon, though. Just looking for something suitable for fishing smaller impoundments with a trolling motor and gain a little more usability and convenience over a canoe. Something basic like that seems to also lend itself to all kinds of modifications later if the urge occurs.
