Which one would fit me better?

Post by BrianTFO » Tue Apr 21, 2015 2:56 am

Im looking at either the pirogue tv 15-32 or the cape fear sit inside.

Im looking for a boat i can use for flyfishing some smaller size rivers and lakes. The lakes are 10 hp limit so large wakes are no problem .
I will need to paddle up river and float back down so good tracking is a must.

Occasionally be able to fish some lake michigan harbors trolling for salmon.

I like the cape fear for trolling on lake michigan . But, im not sure how it would handle in smaller shallow rivers.

Both boats will be built using the cedar strip stich method. I have built a cedar strip canoe so im experienced with epoxy and glass.

Also im 6ft tall 240 pounds if that males a difference.

I like both any input would help.

Either would get the job done. But I've recently updated the TV 32 plans to take some of the radius out of the ends so it's easier to assemble the panels.
