Default Re: Small Boat for Small Lakes, Slow Streams

The boat would be for one of my sons. The boat should be one that can be rowed, powered by an electric motor and up to a 5 HP outboard, and one that you can stand up to fish from. I know that a traditional "jon boat" would probably work, but are there other boats on the market that could fit this need? Also, the boat should comfortably and safely hold two people. Let me know. Thanks. Pat

Sounds like a Hyde drift boat might fit the bill.
