Take your Two Grand to a better boat
More than 15 years ago I purchased a used Hyside 14' SB for $1300.00 from a commercial outfitter. I have used it extensively-the Salmon, the Grand, Westwater a half dozen times-and the thing is still going very strong. Not the prettiest on the water but a darn good boat. All for less than $100 a year. If I see a Saturn or RMR on the water 15 years from now, I'll change my mind, but for me the Hypalon is indesctructible despite my poorer choices with the rocks at times. Go find a used Hyside or NRS and take good care of it, put on the 303 and store it inflated.
