You can buy a used wood or fiberglass boat dirt cheep and fix it up. it will have a trailer to hall it with.Boat building is not easy a you can envest a lot of money and time and come out with a boat that is not safe. I bought a used boat once and had to put new bearings in the trailer and tires to get it home I worked on it and got it in good shape and fished out of it for 6 years until I bought a new one and sold it for what I had put in it..A deep V is the safest boat in ruff water and the longer the better..17 foot would be best on big water...I now have a 20 foot with a 200 hp mercury on it but I fish in a club..I don't know where you live but buying a cheep old boat is a better choise and safer too....Bob
