    I was out with a buddy on Sunday and had a fantastic day for SRCs. He has a Boston Whaler (18ft?). Anyhow, that's the second time I've been out on the sound with it and am thinking about saving my pennies for one. I wanted to hear what some other folks havve to say about boats for the sound. WHat do you guys use?

    We have two boats. The one that i grew up using was an 11' whaler that had a 15 hp on it and was perfect for one person. Great boat to explore the canal and the waters around Bainbridge.
    Now I am using our 17' Grady White which is not a great boat for fly fishing the beaches but it is very stable and a great boat for salmon fishing with gear.
