Author Topic: I want to buy a boat.

I'm looking at buying a used aluminum boat for the fraser river. It's my first time buying a boat, any suggestions on length and size of motor I should be looking at. I've herd that a 12' boat may not be big enough for the river. That the sides don't come up high enough for the rough fast fraser. I've been told to look into a 14'. I gather a 9.9 hp motor is not powerful enough for the river. What about a 15 hp. Or should I look at something a bit bigger. Any in put would really help me out. Thanks for the help.

A yes the excitment of buying your first boat. O it seemed like only yesterday when I first set out for the first time in it and had the most enjoyable fishing day ever.
You will be a lucky guy when you get your boat. cheers

I would suggest looking in the Buy&Sell for a boat. There are tons of deals in there. In fact, thats where I bought my boat from.
Get at least a 14' with a 20hp minimal. Anything under 20hp you will find underpowered, ecpecialy with 2-3 friends + gear. When you buy your boat, check the max hp rating for it a buy it. BUT, if you want to ever venture to some of the local lakes, some of them are 10hp max. But if your mainly Fraser fishing or say Pitt Lake, Alloeute....ect then what I suggested will be best.
Good Luck

Thanks for the tips guys. I'll keep all that info in mind when I'm out looking for a boat today.
