must be small
lightweight
trailorable
able to be handled by a 78yr old w/ a 3xbypass
able to be propelled by a small motor/poss elect.

I can think of several S&G boats I would consider. First there is the one like mine, the SH-14.

And than there is the V-10 or V-12.

These can be found at:

along with several other designs that just might fit the bill.

Here you go.

Simple, stable and reliable.

And a chance to deal with Dynamite Payson, a really good guy.
