I'd be considering jet drive variety like Yamaha or SeaDoo type boat. Good low water draft and no outdrives or outboard and/or props to worry about.

Clip ons are better for water sports. Jet drives don't have the pull of outboards. And, outboards are much better if there are surface weeds, which will get sucked up into a jet drive.

I remember lots of weeds from that trip up north.

Shoot a PM to ActiveShack here on OSO. He's got some redneckin' fishing/hunting boat that does not need water, just buoyant mud to run in. He posted it on here some time back.

Seems like a pontoon would be the only sensible choice, very low draft + the option of one of those outboards made for low water use.

Im thinking one of those little seadoo or yamaha jetboats as was mentioned, plus they were built with the idea that people were going to abuse them.
