Sorry, didn't mean to step on the other first boat question. What advice would you guys have for me? I am thinking about getting my first boat and think a Jon Boat would be just the ticket. I'm thinking just under 14 foot with a 9.9 HP or below engine. I want cheep, easy to maintain and tow, and able to carry three persons. I would use it at Ceasers Creek Lake, and Kiser mostly (yea I know Kiser's elect only so I'd want a trolling motor too). As for the gas engine, I'm thinking small and light weight. Slow is fine. I want something I can stand up in if needed so stability is important. In looking at Craigslist (I want used) I've seen some around $700 that look ok. Any advice please...and thank you.
