I'm trying to buy a duck boat for next season. I'm looking at a 17 Carolina Skiff, and a 17 Alumacraft. Both priced about the same, but I'm concerned about breaking ice. My creek freezes by mid December and I need a boat to break the ice. Some people say the Alumacraft will do the job, while the Carolina Skiff will just ride up on the ice. Others say, they are about the about the same. Any Experience out there. Appricate your comments.
