Hard to say -- if you're just fishing with it. hard to beat the Lund 1800 Alaskan. Trailers easily and you'll resell it quickly in the Lake Huron area.

Can't go wrong with that rig for hunting and fishing. You mentioned big water as well and depending on your definition I would not put this boat or any of the Alaskans in a big water category. I had...

I love the E-Tec in general. However, I don't think I'd buy a discontinued motor. in the future it will be hard to find service and warranty could be an issue.
