Budget is 25k I have 5 kids: Oldest is 13, youngest is 4 This would be the first *family* boat. We are fairly active family. Would love to be able to have some longer outings on the lake. I have room/ability to store covered at home on a trailer. Also have an F250 able to tow...20 min from lake. I have the necessary mechanical skills to work on things (have restored a few classic autos) - don't mind doing maintenance, etc. I just can't take on a project boat at this time. Need plug-n-play. What would be the ideal year/size/model/value to meet our needs? Also, I am new to this kind of boating (overnight, long trips). I welcome any comments on challenges/difficulties I should expect to encounter. Please feel free to talk me out of it entirely....if needed. I live in NW Arkansas and frequently go to Beaver Lake in AR (20min away), and TenKiller Lake in OK (2 hrs away). Thanks in advance for any suggestions!
