Get a 12 or 14 foot john boat, flat bottom, and a battery and electric motor.

I've got a 10 or 12 ft John boat that I haven't used in more than 10 years. $100 and it's yours. Located in Middle River at one of my rentals.

A 10' sit in side kayak is a awesome pond and backwater boat. The cockpit can rest on your right shoulder, paddle in right hand tackle box and fishing rod in left hand and pack right in there. Just get a stable one and not some of the cheap crap they sell now.

I've had the Advanced Elements for over 10 years. I've paddled it in the Potomac, in the Chesapeake and the ocean. Great little boat.

I have a nice one for sale in the classifieds. includes 55lb thrust minn kota.

But then they seem to always either have technical issues or get stranded down wind the first time out. Bad day for everyone. Inflatable is asking for trouble, never take an inflatable anywhere you and everyone with does not want to swim back from. Invest in nice life jackets.

you assume a lot .If i want to take the family out on a boat I'll take them out our center console . The inflatable is for me singular to putz around on a couple of small ponds at my sportsmen's club
