    Or nearly new. As soon as our house is sold, we are buying some toys for our retirement years. Thinking of a deck boat as we total 6 adults and 6 grandkids, ages 9 to 2. Also would like a direct drive or v drive if someone makes such a critter, with outboard being second choice. It is for Bear Lake, a deep lake bordering Utah and Idaho, 5x20 miles in size, and next to no rocks to bang into. Use is primarily fishing, some water skiing when the grandkids get a little older.
    Any advice helping us find a brand and model that comes close to suiting our needs is appreciated.
