This is a might possibly happen kinda deal. I'm selling the ATV and will be spending my money on something else. First choice would be a motocross bike or street bike, but chances are, that wont happen. So the boat is the next option...which aint bad.

Here's what I'm seeing on the List that I like and are in my price range.

I never heard of a river ox but it looks like it would be good for fishing. http://i1220.photobucket.com/albums/dd448/NorthportTroller/Smileys/yes.gif

Less maintenance. Aluminum can take a hit, easier to fix, lighter, better on fuel, easy to keep clean, launch. If you start to get wood rot in a fiberglass boat it is a bitch to fix. I mean, they both have their pro's and cons. I had a nice fiberglass one and I miss it, but I got rid of it for an aluminum one to save on fuel and easier to tow, maneuver, etc.

Just my opinions bro, you buy what you want, we'll be here to help you with it.

Thanks!! If that last one is as good as it looks, I'd get that.

Is that River Ox aluminum? I'd guess so, but it looks plastic-ish.

Yeah, looks like fiberglass to me too, like a Carolina Skiff. That last one is nice that you are jonesing about, but you got to have a gas motor on that jawn. Plus he wants another 400 clams for the electric motor and batt. http://i1220.photobucket.com/albums/dd448/NorthportTroller/Smileys2/shitsweak.gif That boat on a windy day on the lake, or swift river current with that setup can become a catastrophe. But I bet it would kick ass just like my cousin's tri-hull, same size as that with a 40 horse on it, that boat hauls around 4 adults and a 5th wakeboarder on it.

I'd keep looking man personally. If you are willing to spend 1500 bucks on a boat, there are a lot of good deals on a nice aluminum v-hull with a decent sized outboard on it. 14 or 16 feet long, with a 20 plus HP spinner on the back, you'll be happy with that. http://i1220.photobucket.com/albums/dd448/NorthportTroller/Smileys/waytogo.gif
