I just found out that I'm moving to Sitka but I've never been there before. I was wondering if I could ask for some advice on what kind of boat is needed for hunting in this area? I have some experience boating but never in this area and my experience is limited to mostly freshwater and hunting from a friends boat near Homer.
So what should I be looking for? Inboard, outboard? aluminum, glass? Size, HP?
What would be the minimum length in you opinion for these waters? I can afford to stay home if the weather is bad but I still want to try and be safe out there, and not get tossed around too much.
This would purely be a Hunting/Trapping boat. Not saying I wont fish here and there but that isn't what I want the boat for.
Thanks for your help. I know this is a very vague question but I don't have a bunch of experience in personal water craft, and i'm sure I will have more specific questions as time goes on.
