I have a small 18 ft flat bottom we took out about 10miles last week we were to scared to go any farther. The water was smooth as glass caught lots of sharks but nothing worth keeping. I just wonder what how much larger a boat I need to buy to go out about 25-30 miles and get into some bigger fish. Or maybe i'm just a **** fool for even thinking about that kind of trip in a bay boat what do you think?

It is up to you to determine how risk averse you are. Is it prudent to go 25-30 miles off in a single engine bay boat? Maybe, people do it all the time. Some people also ride wheelies on motorcycles and jump off buildings with parachutes. Those activities are more dangerous. I have a wife and kids, so I want twin engines and an offshore boat to go out past sight of land. 25-30 miles can be an awful long way if there is a squall and it gets rough.
