I am trying to figure the best boat for the money for around 4000.00. I like to deer hunt and fish the waters of southeast alaska. I make no plans to fish nasty conditions but was hoping to have a boat/skiff safe enough to get my out of harms way and also be somewhat fuel effeciant. Ive considerd 18'lunds,vintage fiberglass run abouts, duroboats, 15'arimas and cheap whalers. I have listened to many pro's and cons already but would love for anybody to help me further eliminate choices.
Thanks for any advice.
