I looking for a boat to be able to hit rivers big and small lakes. Would a 14 or 16 be better?

Plenty of questions to be asked here, main purpose for the boat? Load? Motor size? Water conditions?

main purpose would be water fowling and fishing. Also would need to hold a dozen of mallards and geese floaters.

16, get the biggest possible and still be able to get into you slim spots. If you can get a 16 in your creeks, get a 16.

If its just you and a dozen or 2 decoys go for the 14". If your going to have a buddy(or two) and more dekes with you go for the 16". I have a 14" just because I usually hunt out of the boat and its piles easier to brush.

Should I buy a S-10 or a 2500 silverado?


Exact same question.

I would say go for the 16, but I have no idea where or how you hunt.
