Just moved from south central PA to bucks county, a few miles from the middle Delaware river. I sold my scadden raft during the move and would like to pick up a jet boat for the river. I had been floating the juniata in my raft and was dead set on picking up a hog island skiff. My main goal is to get my older 2 boys out fishing (now 4 and 5 years old). Really wish I had bought one before the pandemic as everything is nearly double in price now. I’ve talked to a few folks that all run the river in aluminum tunnel hull jets (G3, SeaArk, Lowe). It would be nice to have the option to row, but I realize this won’t be practical when taking the kids fishing. I’m curious to hear your recommendations on the hog island vs aluminum tunnel hulls from a fly fishing perspective.
