Default Boat question

Anyone have any experience with a 1636 Jon boat? If so, anyone have any trouble with the stability?

I don't like narrow jon's personally. Last week I got 2 kids out of the lake in a 1436. They both got on the same side and flipped it.

I can’t imagine using a 36” boat in a cold water/duck hunting environment on anything larger than a small pond. My 1760 seems small in rough conditions on big water.

Was in a 1236 with only a trolling motor this past season on big water, if figured it would have more stability, still got a good deal for boat and trailer. Yeah, the 12' seemed very small at times.

Neither do I, but it was advertised as a 1654, which it is 54" at top. Also has 21" sides. I don't load up one side or sit on the same side.

I hunt fish and gig out of a 1538 and put multiple people and lots of gear in it no issue.

I wouldn't hunt more than 2 folks out of it. 2062 is a stable platform and I could not imagine going back down in size. when I step in my buddies 18 54 I can tell a difference in how stable mine is.

It'll mainly be for getting to the spot, but if need be, I can definitely make 2 trips, and most likely will when goose hunting.
