Advice on a fiberglass bay boat

I'm a freshwater lake guide and in need of a new boat. I fish alot of shallow water and am interested in keeping customers dry and a fairly good ride. I'm looking at 20' boats such as BlueWave, Carolina Skiff, and a Kenner. Not opposed to a used boat if its faily new.
Please give me some opinions and advice on those and different bay type boats.
I've been using a modified vee aluminum and its wet and ruff.
Thanks

JackieB, Test ride any rig that you are seriously considering. Not sure the water you fish, (how shallow - in inches, or feet?), but add the Sea Pro 21 bay boat to your list. My brother-in-law has one and runs it hard in salt water (for 10 years) and really likes his. The new ones are wider and worth a look.

Thanks, I fish a lot of when I'm sitting in foot of water, I also fish out in the main lake where it gets to rolling. Not ruff like ya'll have down in the Gulf. The aluminum boat I have will get on plane in about 13-14 inches. I know all boats are a trade off and none can do evrything. I'd also love to stay with a 90 hp motor, gas is getting to be a big concern.
I ask here because I know there is lots of people using this type boat.

Consider what type of fishing you will do more of when choosing a bay boat.
