Yes so to speek

I want a smaller boat. 18 to no more then 19ft with 4stroke outboard.

We have a cabin on a small lake up north and I dont want to pull my kids around in my 18' John boat anymore. I have it set up for pan fishing and duck hunting and everytime they want to tube I have to pull stuff on and off so it does not get broke.

I also want a boat that trailers a little better. Put on 2 riggers and run the rest copper lead and wire.I have been looking at makos,cobias,polars,keywest,lunds and crestliners. But it doesnot make much sense to buy another boat while I currenly own 3. want to get one boat that does all except the duckhunting part. I have a 12' john boat that I actually like better because the bigger john boat is harder to get where i want to hunt. I use to think bigger is better but now that Im older I want smaller and more convieninet and less work to take care of.

Is the boat's idle problem going to be fixed when you sell it? I have been kickin around selling my Lund. What's the shallowest this boat can get around? Have a place on houghton lake and it is quite shallow by the house(like knee deep).

I had the idle problem fixed I belive. Ran it 10 miles south out of southaven last trip I took last year and had no issues. But I have been on houghton lake and this boat is a bit much for that lake . The boat drafts 26 inches of water with the lower unit. so 30 inches is pushing it.

Thanks for your honesty. I think it all comes down to a good boat for big water, is not going to be a good boat for Houghton. I do have a 14 footer that has a 9.5 horse so maybe eventually the wife will let me upgrade. Love your boat though. Always liked ther setup of islanders.
