  1. Anyone have one? How do you like it? Is it stable? Also how is it if you're by yourself fishing off the front?

    Thanks Jeremy

    I picked up one last fall my first boat not counting my canoe. I fish by myself most of the time, I launch and load it with little trouble and I am 61. I mainly
    fish resivoirs, small lakes and the Maumee. It handles well and is very stable.
    If you are considering a 1436 or 1440 (I was), hold out for the 1448mv you wont be sorry. My motor is an old 9.9 mercury and it brings the boat right up on plane. I have fished off the bow and it is stable enough, I put in floors and
    found there really is no need to get on the bow. Here are a couple of Pics
