Re: Lund boat
My Lund 14 footer was built in 1982...30 years ago. It has seen very heavy duty service with me, and does not have leak one. Best aluminum semi-V hull in the world, as far as I'm concerned.
Used to have a 25 on it, went like crazy. Geared down to an electric start 15 merc to save on shoulder pulls, still goes just fine.
I just don't think you can do better than a lund for a production boat.
I'm sure other's mileages are going to vary, lol.
