Congratulations on your decision to spend your weekends and/or all your spare time on the water. Lets get started with your boat hunt.
The first step is to identify your needs as a future boater.

Where Will You be Boating?
This is usually the first question I ask someone when they ask me about purchasing a boat. If the customer indicates they boat on a large lake and/or a lake with broad open areas I will point them to a larger boat. The reasons being that the longer boat will bridge the crests and valleys of the larger waves, and the additional overall weight. Weight is your friend on a rough day. It allows the boat to cut through more of the water rather than bouncing off it. Where you will be boating dictates the size of the boat.
