    has anybody had a square front jon boat in the rivers with the anchor down? did the boat have any problems staying afloat?

    Would a v style boat be better in the river or would a jon boat do just as well.
  2. Might be worth your time to make a couple calls to boat dealers and ask them your question. They can probably do a good job answering all your questions.

    I have not fished rivers much. Some are very flat and some have a lot of current and boils.

    A v-hull or a modified v-hull will give you more flexibility in the kind of water you can fish. They will handle waves...and current.... better than a flat bottom jon boat imo.

    Keep asking your questions. In the end, you'll make a better buying decision.

    Good luck and be safe out there.
