It time to get a bigger boat. We have been enjoying PWS from a 16ft Zodiac, but with 4 kiddos between 1 and 8 yrs old that's getting a little crowded. We love exploring the sound and I'd like to be able to do it a little more comfortably.
Mission: Shrimping, Halibut, Montague, 2-3 day trips. We don't have to camp on the boat.
Budget: $35k and I'd like to get 2mpg or better.
I have been looking at everything from big Bayliner cruisers to Jetcraft soft tops. I'd appreciate any leads on boats for sale, input on different boat options, models, etc. Thanks! Feel free to call me at 907-360-3236 if you have a hot lead on a boat. I'll give you a free halibut trip as commission! My number one priority is a great deal.
On a side note: I am trying to decide between trailering to Whittier vs getting a slip in Seward. We have a plane so flying to Seward is an option. Any feedback on fishing PWS from the Seward side?
