    Freshwater vs Saltwater boats

    Definitely get a saltwater boat if you want to fish both salt/fresh in one boat. Most freshwater boats come with non-corrosion resistant trailers, and the trailers will rust through in a year or two even if you rinse them down after each salt exposure. I learned this the hard way, and have had to replace my bassboat trailer with a galvanized one in the past. Also, many saltwater boats are made with non-rusting hardware like aluminum and stainless steel. This is what you want if you plan on ANY saltwater trips. Good luck.

    What RO said.

    Something like this could serve both purposes if you don't want a bigger boat.

    Alright Ken, while you're dreaming of a Ghost, I'll be dreaming of a Stilt:

    Shallow water boats, NewWater Boatworks, poling skiff, Curlew, Ibis, Stilt, Avocet, fly fishing skiff, San Antonio, Texas

    We were cruising around in this rig all weekend. 23' custom made by a guy in Corpus. Took 2 years to build the boat, with the 250 suzuki on back, the power pole, TM and all, it was a fishing machine, could not have asked for a more perfect flats boat...now if I can just find the 70-80k laying around somewehre.
