Looking for opinions on this question. I am looking buying a 18ft Smoker Craft jon boat as a Clackamas, E Fork Lewis, Sandy or smaller river type sled . No big white water on the Deschutes or big Columbia River wave action. I am a partner in a 23ft Super Vee for that stuff, just a small river "jet sled wannabe". It has a 90/65 pump on the back and I would put a kicker on it. I just want to know, understanding what I have and what I am looking to do with this second boat, would you rather have a much older, well used Alumaweld flat bottom / semi vee type boat and pump for around $8000 or go with a newer jon with newer motor for around the same price?
