Besides a woman always being right. Ok have couple Jon Boats spotted both 16 foot long. One is 36 inches wide the other is 60 inches wide. I got rid of a 18/60 because it was to big to handle by myself. I have a 12 foot, not sure how wide but pretty wide and sets up good in the water. I'm thinking of at least Gigging out of one of these 16 footers. My wife says I have no business on the river in middle of Winter after dark. I won't be able to find anyone to go with me and I catch plenty of fish from the bank. Use the 12 footer mostly to chase Crappie around brush piles. Ok my Pension Check is burning a hole in my pocket before I get it. Get it and buy one of the Boats sell my 12 footer? Or put the money into either doing work on or House or the Cabin? You know I will probably do what she wants but go ahead give me your opinion. oneshot Glad he never asked for opinions on the Big Grin.
