I have been looking online for a boat, and have actually looked at a couple in person. Something I am running into is that a lot of them are not very wide. I remember troutman in this thread saying that I should look for a jon boat that is at least 42" but should get closer to 48".

Does the same go for semi v-hull boats like that starcraft that Troutman fixed up? What is a good width for one of those? I am seeing a lot of semi v-hulls online and am thinking that might be a way to go.

Are there any huge differences between a jon boat and a v-hull? It seems like a jon boat may have more room in the front, and it has a flatter bottom.

Thanks for all the advice. This is really helpful. I hope to be starting the new year on a boat restoration project of my own.
