I'm contemplating the purchase of a multi-use landing craft or drop down bow boat. Intended use would be:
1. Occasional water taxi duty ferrying people, dogs, gear around Kachemak bay
2. Off-shore runs to fish halibut primarily out of Homer
3. Wheelhouse to seat 6 passengers
4. Stand-up head
5. Outboard power to allow for beach landings
6. 26-30' length
I've looked into Atec, Munson, Svendsen, and have seen a Peregrine aluminum cat that I really liked but heard they were out of business. The Munson Packcat models seem pretty nice on paper.
Also since I live in Homer and often end up at Bayweld for work, their boats are way nice with matching price tags.
While its common knowledge there's not a perfect "do all" boat, any opinions or suggestions from the crew here is appreciated on what you guys think.
