Hey guys I pretty much don't know squat about boating up here and seeking some info. I am just wanting to stick to rivers and lakes not just for fishing but exploring as well. That being said, any advice on the type of boat (flats vs. semi-vs), size, and the most versatile outboards (2 vs 4) to use across the State(road system). I personally don't know many people who own boats and I know everyone has opinions. I have searched various boards but I think those who live and play here would have the best advice. I am currently looking around at various aluminum boats on the for sale boards for a "beginner boat."
