There is no place in PA that I'd use a drift boat, especially if you think you're going to fish on an impoundment. On big water you waste all your time rowing through long slow water and not fishing. I know this because my friend had a drift boat and used it for the Upper Delaware, it would take us all day to travel from our put in point to our take out point, when we could have done that in a couple of hours in a kayak or canoe. The difference is in the amount of time left for fishing.

You could row from one place to another faster by kayak but it's also a hell of a lot easier to stand and fish in a drift boat.....not to mention bringing a cooler and picnic basket boo boo. Each craft serves a purpose though.

"it would take us all day to get from the put in to the take out". If you want to fish for 2 hours, don't get in a boat. Once you launch, you're in for the duration even if the fishing or the weather sucks.

Thanks again for the advice everyone, much appreciated. I think a kayak will be the best for overall and everywhere. I can get used to sitting down and casting.
