I am new to boating and am jumping in big time. As a pilot, I got kinda tired of not seeing things upclose like you can with a boat, so I bought a 1987 Koffler Lite 18' with 40hp johnson two stroke. I immediately replaced motor with brand new yamaha T50 ( high thrust). I am now finishing up a total refurb. All new wiring, new weatherproof fuse block, new seats, refinished flooring, new windshield motor, new new new. It's got a enclosed bow, walk through windshield, full canvas enclosure. And now the questions- do any of you think this boat is capable of day cruising Prince William Sound safely? (Previous owner has decals from Seward and Homer so I know it can be done). It's got a single battery, should Install a second? I'll post pics soon and I will have more questions too. Thanks in advance for any guidance, wisdom, etc.
