Hey all, I'm a newb to the boat owner arena so I'll apologize in advance if these questions are "stupid". Basically I'd like to get a boat (not inflatable) that I can use for taking the family (myself, wife and daughter) out on smaller lakes. Of course, I would like to do some fishing while we're taking in the scenery (which is the primary angle I'm running with) The requirements (as far as I know anyway) are: 1. Non inflatable boat that can accomodate 2 adults and a child 2. Will only be used on small/calm lakes 3. Easy hookup for electric motor (most of the smaller lakes around western WA only allow electric). 4. Doesn't cost an excessive amount of moneys 5. Easy to transport. I'd like to avoid a trailer if at all possible. We have an Oddessey 2006 van but not sure what options there are for easy transport. 6. Related to (5), we live in a house but storage (for trailer/boat) is limited. Realistically, a boat would probably be the max (i.e., no trailer). If it could fit going through the gate to the backyard I could prop it up against the house. The gate is roughly 50 inches wide so it would probably have to moved on its side. Like I said, I'm a complete newb to this (I do have a pontoon but that is different) and if my requirements are way out of whack feel free to tell me so Thanks in advance!
