Which new boat...
So I currently have a 14' cat, and I don't run anything over class three (yet). I do alot of fishing, and my boat seems to handle 2 guys just fine, but I would like to haul 3 or 4 total, or 2 in low water. I need a boat that I can backtroll (hold in 3-4 mph current) with, and cats seem to backtroll better than rafts. So given that info, is there a raft out there (haven't tried them all), or should I turn to an 18 foot cat? Basically, I'll need a boat that can haul 1200 lbs or so and still row easily. Does this boat exist? I'd like to stay away from drift boats.
Any info is greatly appreciated
