Presently I have a 16 foot aluminum john boat with a 60 jet, side console in the rear. I would like to change to a different boat but having difficulty finding one in our area of central PA or on the web. I am looking for a 16-18 foot aluminum john boat and will use my existing motor HOWEVER, I want one with the console as far forward as possible. I am a big guy so the existing boat has trouble getting up on plane. I thought sitting forward rather in the rear would make the boat run better and I could see better. I am having trouble finding a supplier and would appreciate your direction if you should know one. Also are their any issues concerning a forward console that I do not know about. Thanks much.
