I fish the bay with an older 16 ft sylvan. As long as the weather is good we have no problems. I grew up fishing the bay out of a 14 foot wood Lyman my fathers boat we did not venture far from shore maybe a mile at most fishing for perch. I think in the right weather your boat would be fine, you have to be very picky about the wind speed like under10 mph. Anyway that's my opinion I am sure others will chime in with theirs.
Wildfowl bay......Bayport between Sebewaing and Caseville. Nice DNR launch and would be like fishing a large inland lake. Still can get rough but would take a lot of wind. Search the posts from the weekend before the 4rth. If there's a NW or W wind you could fish out of Gambills,punconning, or Standish(eagles bay marina) on westside of bay.
