I just learned about pine needle tea, so today I went out and collected a bunch of pine needles from a young eastern white pine tree. What am I in for? Has /out/ ever tried any type of wild foraged tea?
I have around $5k - 7k to buy a boat with.
I plan on using it for fishing in lakes, reservoirs and offshore by about a mile at most near Santa Cruz, CA.
I know that I don't want anything which includes the word "inflatable".
I'm a complete newb at boating but I've been watching a bunch of videos on buying boats and the do's and dont's of the hobby.
The $5k to 7k I plan on spending is including the price of the motor.
I would prefer something brand new but I'm cool with buying a slightly used boat and then buying a brand new motor.
I've been looking at a few models, the Lowe WV1670 caught my eye as did the L1852MT Jon and L1852 MT Aura Jon.
I'm cool with a tiller motor since I have less to worry about going wrong in regards to the steering wheel and its mechanisms.
I also hear that the minimum a boat SHOULD be for the ocean is 14 feet with a 6 foot beam but I see a ton of people on YouTube leave Half Moon Bay on 10 to 12 foot boats.
Your tips are appreciated.
