I'll leave any specific boat discussion to questions you ask in a new thread but in short a 3.1m Cadet with 9.9hp will get you about fine as long as your people/kit load is modest.
Thanks David! I am glad you checked it out - yes miles of marshes surrounding the islands with a maze of coastal channels to explore longer distances without being to exposed to open waters. And indeed, very interesting to see the gators, we also have great whites/hammer heads/tigers and bull sharks in the deeper water. A lively ecosystem
Very much appreciated again, looking forward to diving into to sub categories after work here and posting some questions. Cheers!
