Boat Reviews By Owners
1969 -- 16' 0" LARSON
Cockpit: seats 4, room for 5, closed bow, excellent for fishing, not so good for skiing due to the cable steering control
Cabin: No cabin, but just enough room under bow for sleeping, or other adult entertainment. Only drawback is if you are a serious fisherman, is that when you catch a lunker, you have to crawl over the windshield to land the fish or turn the boat
Construction: Fiberglass hull is suprisingly durable.
and boat only drafts about 12 inches.
Handling: Definitely an inland boat, but would not hesitate to boat the great lakes, in non severe weather. Handles waves well, have been out in 6-8 foot, a little rough when hit from port/stern, only small chop when hit straight on.
Engine Room: 45hp-rude can handle the best of the worst. Quick acceleration and smooth running. The motor is as old as I am, and I only wish I could start as easy. One very nice feature is the selectric shift, just flick switch and you are in reverse.
General Comments: This is my third boat, only thing missing is power trim.
