Don't think you can find a boat that will do what you want for that price under 5 years. It will most likely be 40-50k for what you just stated.

He is staying in a cabin. They only rent for the day I believe. You cant keep them over night. It would also be way more expensive to rent one for multiple days if you already have a 4x4, which he...

In reality the only sustainable way to meet the demand from the public will be through fish farming. Wild caught fish can only support a fraction of demand without being totally destroyed.

Why is it an issue that a population of people 100's of times bigger than another takes more of a fish? Thats what I don't get. Acting like recs taking more is bad. That's how it should be. It makes...

Can you name other commercial fisheries or commercial hunting that was allowed unlimited amounts of take and didnt end in disaster? Serious question.

Weight will make a difference. All else being equal a heavier hull should ride smoother. I know one major brand of boats that purposely keeps their hulls fairly heavy because it helps the ride.

Just wondering if anyone uses the newer side scan units inshore to locate fish like trout and puppy drum? I have never heard much talk about them from inshore guys.

An 18'6 deep garage means it's going to have to be under 16ft almost certainly. The motor will add a foot and even a swing away tongue is still an extra foot at the minimum.
