I rarely buy new anything, and I look at this like your first motorcycle - get something safe and easy enough to learn on and cheap so you don't lose too much money when you inevitably do something stupid to it.
As far as wading I meant fishing - I fish from the bank or wade out, I would only fish from a vessel in open water.
Here are the cheap ones that catch my eye on the local craigslist. I know they are pretty ugly, but that's what I like - restoring vehicles is my first hobby.
That last one catches my eye in particular. I guess my decision now comes down to which one will carry all my gear and not be too big of a slug on the rocks? Not in a rush, but if the right one comes along I will pick it up before Spring.
