Had a 12 degree bobcat and a 12 degree Nahanni looking at a 8 degree muskwa now want to know how noticeable is the bottom difference? I been on a big lake with a old flat bottom marathon noticed a difference between the two. I understand flatter runs skinnier water just never seen the two side by side on a big river with some chop

The 8d will be a lot rougher than the 12d in the waves, and won't steer as good in narrow channels. But with the same bottom width, the 8d will be better at sliding a heavy load through the shallows. Advise... is to test drive an 8d.

if all is equal in the boat weight, motor and pump... how much difference in "required" water depth does the 8 degree make? would the 8 degree be harder on fuel? or slower on step?

i went with a 10 because of the lake. I found an 8 too rough.

The perfect setup is to buy an 8 for the rivers and a lake boat for the lake!
