Well I ran the Big Sue this last weekend. I had my 17 foot boat with the jet on it. A 60/40 and was burning gas bad, like 20 miles per 5 gallon tank!
Im seriously hating the jet! No control at slow speeds, bad gas milage and expensive parts.
What about a propped John boat like one of the G3 Setups at Deweys? What could a guy do with one of those? Big Su, yetna, tanana, Kenai and lakes? Would that be a good versitale Boat for the inland boater?
The other thing I noticed about those johns is the huge price difference in the ones with the seats and exposed ribs VS the plated floor models. I have to admit I like the cleaner look of the floored boats without bench seats But am also Thinking that I could live with the bench seats?
Im also eyeballing a G3 Guide 18 foot v-bow. That looks like it would be versatile just the same as well as maybe the close in trolling venture in seward.
Tough choices all around!
