I wouldn’t be caught on the Miss in something that small ecspecially with a mud motor. (Need reverse with full power and quick sometimes)But then again we hunt all the way up til freeze out and then some if we can break the ice we’re goin. To each there own but once you hunt outta something bigger you won’t wanna go back down. And like others have said not 1 boat is perfect for every condition and it sucks having multiple ones trust me (I have 4 for different situations) My Miss boat is 2472 with a 115 gotta have some extra power when the wind kicks up mid hunt and your jumping 4-5 foot waves into a 30 mph wind to get back to the ramp in 20 degree weather with 6 guys and water freezing to your faces!!!

I use a 1648 with a 35 hp and a custom hard side blind. It does get cramped with 4 and a dog. I also have pods on it. I will go to a 2070 next year after Mrs car is paid off. But we are cozy, have 2 heaters, and padded floor for the dog and our feet. We just don't get anywhere fast...

If you haven't found a boat yet, I know Dirt has a good boat for sale that's plenty safe for the Miss.
