I just got my wife to admit that maybe a boat wasn't out of the question, even if she still thinks it's a bad idea. So my question is this:
I'm thinking about a boat primarily for saltwater use in Res Bay & PWS, with maybe some action dipnetting in the Kenai. There are three of us, and I"m looking in the 20-22' range. Something with a hard top or full canvas cover. A cuddy cabin would be nice, but will probably have to wait until I upgrade. There are lots of options in the 22-24' range, with a hard or canvas cabin, including outboard and inboards. Given planned use and cost/maintenance considerations, is a boat with an inboard jetdrive worth considering vs. an outboard (or twin) prop setup? What are the advantages of a jetdrive in the saltwater?
Thanks in advance for your help.
