I'm in the market for an aluminum boat. Originally I was leaning towards a 16-17' with 50-70hp prop and a trolling motor. Now I don't know. I will primarily use it for the Sound although I'm also hoping to use it around the SJ Islands as well as possibly the Columbia or Snake. I'm curious what other guys find effective in similar boats. Jet or prop? 16' enough or go 18-20? I will only be fly fishing and have 1 or 2 other people with me, but want to be comfortable and have enough power. Are there any other things I should watch out for or preferences you have in a setup? I've heard conflicting reports specifically on the jet or prop question in the salt with crud in the water. Thanks!
