Looking to buy a duck boat

Postby shaneefird44 » Thu Jun 20, 2013 9:06 am

I currently have a 14 ft tracker topper jon boat that just isn't big enough to haul my hunting and fishing buddies and I plus all of our equipment anymore. I am looking for a 16 footer with console steering. If anybody knows of any for sale or runs across any leads please let me know! I am located in the Charlotte area but I do not mind traveling. Thanks in advance!

You will thank me down the road, but get a 18' instead of a 16'. If you have out grown the 14' in another year or two the 16' will most likely be to small for you also.

Agreed 100% and depending on your needs, I would get one with as much space in the bottom of the boat as possible. I have an 18 foot lund that has a console, gun box, front deck and back deck.....and if I had it to do over again, I would've gotten a tiller motor, with no deck, no gun box, and had all floor space.
