While I would love to order a new XL, I hate the idea of draining the family's accounts $XXXXX. I've been looking around at used Wooldridges. I checked out a 92 20' today that looks pretty good. My thoughts are that if I can get a great hull cheap enough I could buy a new motor, take care of the "other repairs" and be $ ahead. A whole host of other reasons come into play here!
My question on this boat is that it was set up to run the Kenai with a 35 HP prop. It has no tunnel. I want to run the Valley Rivers with a jet. If I repower this boat to a jet unit (115), will the lack of a tunnel hinder its shallow water performance or cause other problems?
