I have noticed in the last few years quite a change in development of boats and materials and there are a few new boat makers on the block with some really neat and innovative designs and materials. So as I listened to reps and sales folks of these new boats I began to wonder.....what is the future of the drift boat?
Generally there are 3 main material types: Wood, Fiber Glass and Aluminum. I have through the years owned lots of drift boats made of all different types of materials. I appreciate the history of wood boats, love the versatility of glass boats and the durability of aluminum boats. I have searched high and low for the magic boat that rows great, has lots of room, and does all that I need. I will admit that I haven't found one yet, but I can say that I have appreciated the different things that each type of boat was good at.
So the question on the table is: What is the best type of drift boat and why?
Next on tap.....I will be out on the water guiding and fishing as soon as levels will allow. I have been couped up far to long and ready to get back to work.
