Do I buy this Phantom Sport Jon or what?
Posted by milspec100 on Apr 01 2006
Hey guys I'm stuck! I've been wanting to get a boat and I want to get some good hunting in and get to some remote spots via the alaska's rivers.  I'm not at all going to be on the salt water.  I would like to try dipnetting this year and use this boat to get to a choice spot.  I'm in the military so I would definitely need to be able to use this boat for lakes and river fishing hell maybe even towing a tube behind it.  I like the fact of the inboard jet and the heater (wife) and enclosure but still have flexibility to remove it.  Haul weight is a plus for my 4x4 and a moose carcass but the price is killing me, 25K for base model and 36K every option minus the kitchen sink.  I wonder would I have problems with it in a weedy bass fishing area on a lake in the lower 48 if I get stationed their before I come back after I retire.  It does have a mount (extra $) for an outboard but still....  What do you all think?  Be honest maybe a better choice is a _____________.  Let me know, Thanks.
