Get a catamaran
, easy to power, sailing without heeling, (wife will love that), room for all your toys and to lounge around. Just an option, and options are always good. Watch out for a boat that is hard to get on and off, thats important. Is not like you are going around the world and it sounds like shallow draft
might be important on the low level lake. Good luck and happy hunting!
Whats wrong with homemade hooch, "hic"?
