i live on the hudson river (pic related) and i want a boat to explore the river with my dog in the spring. I dont know shit about boats, what type would u guys recomend? i dont want a kayak bc there are large barges that go by and im not sure how stable they are if i want to go from one side of the river to the other. it doesnt need to be fancy, just cheap and able to fit me and a dog. thanks.
