    Default Lake Michigan

    I am new to boating, and am looking for advice on a type or brand of boat that would be good for cruising around on Lake Michigan. Any help would be appreciated.

    With the way the water can change, need to make sure it is large enough to handle rough water


    We have a friend with a 31' fishing boat, Keeps it in Kenosha Harbor, went out with him a couple weeks ago, smooth water and great fishing

    Would you be able to take one of these little "flat bottom" boats out on a good day?

    I suppose you could try, but i would not go too far out as it can change and become a rough ride. Seems like the few times I looked at the water out there, it was not too Flat Bottom friendly, even with speadout rollers

    Doc, figure out where you wanna boat, lake Michigan is one thing, other lakes and rivers are another. If Lake Michigan is your choice, get a early model 39' SeaRay Express, $50k or so or a nice jet or v-drive to tow around and have fun with on the small lakes and rivers. My .02
