Default bad knees and bad back, what boat?

My dad has a pretty bad knee and my mom has a bad back. Were getting rid of our pantera and getting a new boat this week. My question is, which woudl be better for them? a cat, V, sit down, or standing? I was thinking a cat with high back seats.
any input would be great
thanks
-Rick

also last chance on a 28 pantera w/ 2 250 merc OB's.

Re: bad knees and bad back, what boat?

this is the best solution, big, comfortable and TWO fridges, holds over 20 people and can be used as an excellent corner boat.

I have blow out my knee cap and Bulge 2 disc L3 and L4 before "not at the same time" and im still boating. hard part is getting in and out of the boat with knee problems. with back problems is going over rough water.. stand up bolsters are the best on rough water but might be hard on the knee for your Dad. sounds like its cruiser time. maybe a formula PC,
pretty Fast cruiser.

Me Too!! Bad back ,, Bad Knee ,, and still want the look and the Performance,,, Answer

APACHE-- Thats the answer ,,, 36 or 41 mild power and put a small box on the floor for your feet to rest on,,,, Set down in the bolsters and run the boat ,,,, thats the answer ,,,, have fun!!
