So, been talking with the house CINC a bit, and toying with the idea of getting the kiddos (14 and 8) a boat they can "grow up on." Living in central FL, I had numerous jon boats and was on the water/self learned a ton, and also gained appreciation of all things boating. To be honest, if we picked up something "for the kids" I'd likely be out on it as it'd be an easy launch, smaller to get in skinny waters, and all around easy to handle - but durable and reliable so we all could enjoy. Anything out there that a guy might throw a few bucks at? Trailer would be good, and not breaking the bank on "the kids boat" would also be helpful. Lol.
