So my wife has given me the OK to start shopping for my first boat to be used in the salt. What I am envisioning is something light enough that I can handle by myself easily enough, something I can drag up on a beach fairly easily, something I can launch at a place like Eglon without worry. Fishing wise, I am enivsioning using this boat to cruise the shore of the sound/canal looking to fish point, creek mouths, inlets, for salmon and SRC and basically all the places I'd love to fish on foot if everything was public land. Ideally I'd love something capable of doing Sekiu on a decent day, but that's not a deal breaker either. I'm thinking something in the 14-16' ballpark, aluminum. So, first off, does such a creature exist? How feasible is it for one guy to fish in such a manner? I'm sure my son would be joining me plenty, and hopefully my wife on occasion, and friends now and then, but a lot of the time I would be solo. For you guys that do such fishing, do you anchor up in fishy points, or stay on the move and just slowly cruise and cast? Is a boat that fills those needs AND is capable of doing Sekiu a reality? I remember putting a ton of silvers into the rental boats at Olsen's, and I don't remember them being much more than what I've described. Anyway, I'd love to hear some input from you guys who do similar fishing. What would you suggest for boats? Size? Motors? Things to look for? Avoid? Great features? Floor plans? Etc..... Just anything that could be added to a first time boat owner would be great. I've already read through a ton of posts here, and several other places, and will be doing tons of research. Just hoping to hear from those of you with first hand experience with what I'm describing. Thanks!
