Sounds like a sweet little ride. My first real power boat was a 16.5" Sealaker and although small comparatively it was the ticket to amazing adventures on the water and easy to launch by myself when I wanted to.
Reserve a day for me to show you around the bayside flats, I have had them w-i-r-e-d since the 90's by boat since I converted several co-workers with boats in Sesuit to flyfishing by showing them around the area and it's ten times the fishery from a craft that it is on foot because of the bg tide risk for waders.
I have two in college coming up but once past that I will be looking for a ride again myself.
