Well then, go about the process right. What will you use the boat for the most? Stillwater, class II rivers, class III to III+ rivers? What is the normal gradient, flow and technicality of the rivers you expect to fish? How good are you at rowing in those locations? Are you certain you want a framed boat? Heavier, more difficult to set up and break down if that is a factor, but transfer rowing energy better. Would frameless suit your needs? Lighter, more easily fin kicked, slightly less responsive to rowing energy. Will you fish mostly alone? Do you want a craft capable of taking along a friend that can continually make you row whilst farming fish, who will then row a bit all over the place whilst you cast and he criticizes your every move? Will you fish on your feet and float point to point? Will you float and fish at the same time? So many variables. There is no one perfect boat, so you will need a bigger garage, shed and driveway...and your house is going to be full of new couches! Or you can just say, I'm getting a PAC 900 or 900 IR and call it good. There are many here who will offer up reasons why they went in one direction or another, calibrating you to their rowing experience and history of crafts they have had...including those they've loved and hated. The end result is you have a boat, and can reach places you could not before.
