I am looking at buying a boat this season. I haven't done much shopping yet and am looking for some good advice.

Guess I'm looking for something in the 14' range with a 9.9. My lake is unlimited HP; but who needs more than a 9.9 and a trolling motor to get around?

What kind of prices am I looking at? Any suggestions on what make/models to look at?

I'm thinking my 5 going on 13 yr old daughter would love to get out on the water each and every saturday with dad; depending on her social schedule of course.

Just fishin for info. Thanks.

Look at this one. Open in the middle and looks safe for kids also.

That is a pretty cool looking boat, however, I think a 9.9 would have a little bit of difficulty getting this boat on plane. :D

Wow, got the wife to bite tonight on a boat. She actually sounded interested in the idea. Not sure if she knows how fishing goes on the boat and may be thinking of sun bathing or something.

Anyway I'd like a nice deeper hulled aluminum boat since I fish primarily on flood control resevoirs where speed boats and their wakes are likely.

Any ideas on a nice steady in the water boat? Links would be nice.

Not Aluminum but should fit the bill for what you want.

Go wide. And about a 40hp. 16ft 48in bottom is a good size.

What state you in?

My son in Dothan, Alabama is selling his two year old Triton, new baby and too busy to use it. Listed for over $19,000, would take $12,500. 185 Magnum, with 150 Mercury, Motorguide trolling motor, rigged with driftmaster rod holders front and back. Really nice rig and used very little, still looks brand new. Aluminum rig, all welded, two depth finders, Hot Foot, etc. Any interest, call him at 334 673 0783.

JH; look into a Lund WC 14 with a honda or yamaha 20 to 25 hp in that beautiful marsh green. you could fish all of our PA inland lakes like Shenango, Aurthor, Wilhelm, Pymie. I'd say that boat and motor with a good galvinized 13" wheel trailer about $6000. PM me if you need some dealers in the area. Gary

Your daughter may not be happy with a 9.9 (you either), when she gits a little older and wants to "cruise". Mines 11 now and if the fish dont bite within an hour or so, shes ready to go. Ive got a 14' flat bottom jon w/ an old 20hp. The boat isnt real stable when moveing around in the boat and the motor seems to lack a bit. You would probally be happier w/ 16' modified v and a 40hp. Around here you might find one around $2-3000. good luck
