    I haven't found my best boat yet, but I keep on buyin' and tryin'. Don't really matter that much anyhow 'cause boats don't catch fish but do allow you to "style and profile" as my pal CP says.

    I think you're describing a 22' bay boat. Goes shallow, handles big waves well, casting deck, trolls well. Heavier glass ride. Fish for any species. Maybe one of the most versatile boats ever. The one I've got will do all that and has enough bow flare to keep you dry.

    No boat will do it all. No boat will handle shallow and "very rough" well. A flats boat certainly won't, it doesn't have enough freeboard. A skiff won't, the flat bottom will beat you to death. A bay boat is one of the most efficient compromises, but if there are 6 footers I'm at the dock.

    I sure love my current boat. I'd change plenty like going to a 4 stroke, Better TM and electronics. Bigger bimini and a custom cover. Eventually I'd like to ditch the carpet for the vinyl stuff.
    My 19 footer, trailer, motor, and hull is less than 3000 lbs. It seats 7, skis, does shallow and handles rough water (not 6ft seas, YIKES!). The front deck is enormous with 2 seats. The only problems with mine are that it catches wind, storage is minimal, and doesn't have air conditioning.
    Oh and its already complete with CDC decals!

    As for a last boat? I'll never stop looking and dreaming about boats. Name:  20190722_183235.jpg

    Every boat will be a compromise at some point. Best is to own several, then pick which you will use for todays use.
    And that just covers the inshore fishing.
    Chaunce might well use his Lund for fishing lake Erie, but there will be lots of days he wont, or wished he didnt.

    I think I bought the last one for me to. Does everything that I need it to and can fish for whatever I want to. Rides good in rough water also.

    Best believe I wonít be going out on Erie unless the forecast is 2 ft or less. Iíve got caught out there by quick changing winds before. Learned my lesson. Boat handled it but me and my buddy prayed all the way in to shore. South wind three to fives are no fun on the big lake, no matter how far from shore you are.

    PSHAW!! Ya'll aint seen rough till your on Lake of the Ozarks on July 4th and its a Saturday

    I'm not afraid of big open water, but I'm terrified of taking any boat I can afford into it.
    Went fishing in the gulf this summer. I was shocked at the tiny boats headed offshore in 3ft swells. They certainly didn't have that much freeboard.

    I have a lund rebel 16.5 footer and love it. I had a crestliner fishhawk 17.5 footer several years back. I love the deep vees. Safe for grandkids and wife, ride well, and fish great. The only other type I would consider is the new aluminum cc bay boats. I think they may be good as well, but have never owned one. Bought a new Carolina Skiff 20 foot with a 140 on it and did not like it. Bought it for my last boat and ordered it like I wanted. Too big and heavy. Hard to control and terrible in the wind. Beat you to death. I know there are those out here that love them, but not for me. Sold it in about a year and gave someone a great deal. Guess that is why there are so many boat builders, so many fishermen with different taste.
