I'm looking for a boat that will navigate the Deshka mainly. I want to get one that will get me there, up to the good holes, and back down. Not looking for something to run super skinny water or anything, just something to get a little experience in and be able to take the family out. I was looking at a little 17' semi-V with a 115 HP jet on it and thought it would probably do the trick. When I was up here for the summer in 2002 my buddy took me up there several times in a flat bottom jon with a 50 HP jet. Would the 17' semi-V be able to get to the same places on the deshka that the jon could? I know later in the year I remember there are some rocks and such and the navigation gets trickier, but could the semi-V still make it to the good holes all season?
Thanks for all the help on this site, it really is great!
