That looks like a lifetime of hard beachings all accomplished in 10 minutes! I think a GT 23 with a light pilothouse and some good bottom protection will be the ticket. If nothing else, the skills learned in building the GT will come in handy after a couple years on the water where experience will teach me what I really want/need in a boat.

There is only one version of the plans now, the Houseboat version, or a slight compromise if any. The planing version had a bow-down issue that could not be fixed. I believe Jaques had to fix the designs to make one that would work. The houseboat version was the winner. I believe the GT23 could be just the thing for your situation. There is a great build on a GT27 happening right now. He is a member here and has videos on Youtube that are great!

Late to the party, but Devlin has your boat; the Mud Dauber 23. My wife grew up in Ketchikan; beautiful area.
