I posed the original question and wanted to fill in what has happened.
Thanks to all who replied. I bought a Intek seahawk 4
I was very pleased- very stable and drags no water. A board on the floor takes care of stability for the battery and it does great with just a trolling motor although it is rated for a 1.5 hp.
I load and unload from my pick up with it already inflated and am fishing in less than 5 minutes and load it back up by myself in the same time.
no tag,title, ins or reg and two can fish quite comfortably. it does not seem fragile to a hook although i can see how that would happen but with three chambers- it will keep 4 people afloat even with a leak in one.
so far I am pleased and can go about anywhere a canoe or kayak but with more room for cooler, tackle etc.
