Fish off Wellington/Brighton for Salmon in my 16.5 ft Lowe (when it's calm!) & 50 hp Merc.
Researching a proper used boat & looking for advice.
Thinking 22-26' with a hard-top (buddy cabin?) and work (fishing) area.
Prefer outboard power
Not a ski/fancy boat; just a hard-working craft that I can safely enjoy on the big water.
Budget is a factor.
Appreciate any advice or directions to helpful advisories.
