Hi all, I have been lurking aroud here for a few years now and this is my first post. I don't post a lot on any site because I have sever spelling disabilite done get me wrong I am not stupid I just cant spell very well. Any way I grew up in Michigan and fished the great lake a lot. Walleye was the fish I mastered in the Great Lake State. I even guided for the toothy criders I won a few contests and almost tied the state record That fis is on my wall. I worked for GM and was laid off in october of 87 and Joined the USN and was on subs out of Bangor Washington for 10 years and Now I reside in Troutdale, Oregon. I do not have a boat as of yet, I have been bank bound since I have been here and I have turned into a fly fishermen to boot. But the River is a callin me bad. Which is why I am writing today. I am in the market for a boat. I need a 18' to 20' boat for the family and I was wondering If you guys could steer me in the right direction? who do you consider the best dealer in the area to deal with? also what are the best choices to make on a new boat as far as motor and options I need to stay under 20k?
