    If you plan on fishing and trailering to different waters than get the Lund. If you live on an inland lake with waterfront property and a hoist than get a pontoon. Otherwise , I would not bother with the pontoon. It's a slippery slope when the wife starts to give input !

    Matt, you could probably get a similar boat a little older for 10k less than that. I would look for a boat less than 10 y old and well cared for. Then when you get tired of the boat it will be easy for you to sell it to the next interested party. Trust me, you will end up being seduced by bigger and better watercraft in the future !

    A good time to buy a boat is in the fall or after walleye run. There were some good listings on CL and here on MS in the last month or so. A newer Lund just sold on MS but with a 25 hp. If I didn't already have one in my garage I wOuld have bought the newer one for myself. 24 G is a lot of money for aluminum.
