So, I want to start thinking about a family boat to put together over the winter or just buy turn key. I'm considering for the first time ever, an open bow. I have two kids now and a big ass dog. ( im not gettin any smalle either). So I want a quality hull that I can build a nice motor for in the 20'-21 range. It needs to be able to ride well in rough water and pull skiers and such. But I also want to be able to run a decent blown motor in the future. Definitely nothing with a tropical name!! hahaha What say you squirters ?
