I have a friend who is looking to get into fishing - likely on lakes only. He would like to buy a watercraft, but as he will only be able to go if the wife can (and possibly other friends) can join him, he needs a water craft that is in this range - $500 - $700. He owns a truck with a super king cab and a short bed with a roof rack. I am personally partial to pontoon boats. But anything with more than 1 seat quickly gets into the $1k range. I suggested a Pelican style canoe or even a drift boat, but anything that is too heavy or requires a trailer he isn't much interested in. What would you folks recommend? I thought a simple row boat might be the answer, but (again) anything too weighty is likely out of the question. To summarize: he is looking for something reasonably light weight, affordable, and can hold more than 1 person. Any advice or input is much appreciated!
