I'm kicking the tires over getting another fishing boat (used) and am wondering if you guys have any recommendations. I'm looking for something that will fit in a standard 20 foot garage but also handle choppy water well. My previous boat was an 18' bass boat and once the wind picked up it would beat me up getting across the lake. I now have two small boys (2 and 4) so I'm looking for something that will be safe and comfortable for them and still fish well. 90% crappie fishing on Lewisville, Ray Bob, Grapevine and the occasional trip to Texoma for striper a couple of times a year.

I would need to stay under 15k price-wise. Any suggestions?

Agree with finaddict, except omit the double windshields, takes up too much fishing walk space, probably drops the price as well. The kids are not as apt to fall overboard until they are big enough to want to... thumb
