I'm wondering if you guys in the know might be able to make some suggestions as to a good multi-purpose rig. We do most of our fishing on the lower/middle Kenai (max 50 HP.) but would like a boat that is capable of getting safely out onto the salt water out of Homer and Seward to fish for silvers/kings/halibut/rockfish as well. Owning a dedicated saltwater boat just isn't in the cards right now.
So, (keeping in mind the 50 hp max restriction) if you could choose any boat for this purpose what would it be?
