square stern frieghter for Kenai
Just wondering if a larger size frieghter would work as a dual purpose boat. Has anyone used or seen a frieghter being used on the Kenai? Thus providing something that could be used on skinner water for moose hunting and lakes as well. I thought that I would post this in the fishing and the canoe sections to see the responses.
Guess I should have specified for kings, silvers, maybe dipnetting etc.
It would work thought about using my 21' Scott HB, but there are better fishing boats.
Long skinny boats are difficult to backtroll! Though to keep at at a constant straight backing down stream consitent to catching fish, also stepping over seats & thwarts makes it difficult to move around in. I fished in mine on Little Sue but preferred a open john style boat for fishing. Trolling it would be fine, moving around in the Scott is not as easy or safe as in a open boat without having to step over thwarts & seats. Any time both feet are not on the deck of a boat it is not a good thing for safety. IMHO
