I am going to pick up a boat over the winter.(figure best deal time) But my experience with small boats is slim to none. I want something CHEAP for one but i want it to be comfortable and able to safely hold 2 1/2 people. 2 adults one child. But potentially hold 3 adults. I tend to fish small ponds/lakes and rivers. I was leaning towards a 12 or 14 foot flat bottom Jon boat. I would prefer something I could launch at hard to get to locations but I don't see that happening with what i want the boat to do. I live in Newark area so Licking river/ Dillon Lake/ Buckeye Lake/ and Alum Creek are my main targets. Here is my main concern I am big. I am not uncoordinated big just big in general I weigh between 285-310 depending on summer or winter lol. I am also 6'1" I figure with gear as well as entire family there will be 550 ish lbs in the boat. I think that will influence my buying decision as well. I want my wife and son to feel safe and secure in boat not like its a balancing act to stay afloat. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
