  • a good boat for alaska

    I am interested in getting a boat I could use in the copper river and in PWS on decent weather days. Does any one have a recomendation on what would serve both purposes? Thanks.

    20' inboard jet would be your best choice. Lots of choices depending on your budget.

      Silver Streak Boats in Anchorage is an affordable custom builder check out their Pro V Deluxe with standard 36" sides. This is a pretty good boat with a center console or a front windshield with a canvas.

      ATEC in Kenai makes their Steelhead model which is pretty good for those two areas, and don't underestimate one of their setnet boat models either.

      A 115 or 150 hp Mercury four stroke or Yamaha four stroke would be awesome for any of these boats as skiffs of the 20-25' range.

        I purchased a 17'9" Wooldridge Alasken with a 135 Evinrude motor last summer and loved the boat. It got on step quick and can go in some pretty skinny water and handled great. I mainly used it to fish on the Deshka and we had 3 people, dog, fish cooler and beverage cooler and camping gear in the boat. The boat got really tight when you cramed 5 people in it and it worked. I soon realized I needed a bigger boat. I sold the 17 Alaskan and Purchased a 20' Wooldridge Alaskan XL with sport jet with some extra options.
