I bought a white skiff and turned it into a really good diver boat, that I use for layout hunting. That doesn't bother me one bit and I get a lot of compliments on how it looks. Don't know why it would bother anyone, that is what I bought the boat for. I knew the owner so I didn't have any issues with buying it secondhand. I have owned a 16 ft jon boat, it is to small for big water and to big for small. There are no perfect size boats, but' I would go bigger than smaller. A 16ft boat with a console just doesn't have enough room. I see to many folks with boats overloaded all the time, it only takes one time to get into trouble with a small boat in rough conditions and conditions can change fast. If I wanted a do all jon boat I would have a 17 ft with a tiller, the tiller gives you lots of room and 17ft is a good all round size boat.
