Barney#1 wrote:All depends in what you are looking for and where you want to take it. Surface drives are pretty handy but do you hunt and fish or just hunt. I myself fish a lot so I bought a boat with an outboard. While I have no doubt you can fish with a surface drive it is just not practical for me. Trolling for stripes and white bass I can't see happening. I can run my out board in 8" of water no problem but very heavy vegetation will bog it down. Stumps I avoid by charting out my courses in day light with the gps, and a steel prop. If you aren't going balls to the wall you just get a little bump and keep on. I hunt often in a stump infested lake and it has not been a problem for me.
On the boat I will say you should get one a size bigger than you think you need. It seems you can never have enough room.
I have a tracker grizzly 1754sc with a 50hp merc. Love that boat. I have also had 2 other john boats but outgrew both. 12' & 14 foot flat bottom. The 14 footer was great for very tight an shallow spaces but limited room. I also like a semi v hull over a flat for a little bigger and rougher water. Again my preference.
Hope this helps some. Good luck on the boat.
And for those surface drive guys. I'm not knocking um. If I could afford 2 boats I would be running one.

If you are patient you might get a pretty good deal on one. The rig below was purchased for $1700 trailer and all. You might not find a deal that good, but you never know. Good luck, hope you get what you need.
