Shallow means different things to different folks. To a flats guy, 1.5 ft won't cut it. When you say shallow, I'm thinking about getting in and out of 12" of water. No V is going to do that. Unless you want to pole through 6" of water in the bays, I think a jon MV with a jack plate would get you just about anywhere you would want to go. It just depends on what kind of fishing you are going to do the most of. There is no such thing as an all purpose boat.
