My wife and I finally went down to Bass Pro Shop in Mesa and purchased a brand new Tracker V14 Guide boat. Nothing fancy, but this 3 bench boat will do perfectly for fishing in the smaller lakes in Arizona like Woods Canyon and Willow Springs which are our favorite two lakes to visit when we go camping up north. We will be adding a Bimini top in the near future so it can have shade, and they make bench clamps and real seats so we can put some nice comfortable seats over the benches.
The boat is plenty big enough for my wife and I and the two kids and we are hoping to take it to the lake sometime in early May. In the meantime we still have to buy life jackets for the kids and finish getting the boat registered with Game and Fish as well as deal with DMV on the boat trailer registration.
Here are some pics of the boat as we purchased it from the Bass Pro shops lot:
