    Had a pretty good run with this boat and my team this year! Got it built and ready right before tournament season. I can't thank my fiends enough for allowing that to happen! Entered 4 tourneys, won 1 and placed second in another. Even took it to the Cajun 8 and placed horribly, but was a fun experience otherwise. A couple changes/additions for next year will be:
    Foam flooring for deck
    Casting seats up front
    Pods
    Hydraulic Jack Plate (Bobs Kicker)
    And some other little odds and ends

    Looking forward to next year!
    Happy New Years Everyone!

    Congrats on the tourney! I’d like to see a video of this machine in action. I like the idea of small motor for kicker and main!

    Took the boat out for the first time Friday night for a full tilt test. Everything worked as should and it fishes awesome! Looking forward to this weekend's tournament!

    Nope 60 at the bottom, the sides are a bit shallow at 21" so maybe that is why it looks deceiving

    Thanks! Plan is to get the rest of the wiring done before a tournament this weekend. All I lack is a battery, led wire, and some nav lights.

    I will use 1"x3" tubing welded right below the gunwale. I will be doing some demo work to it this weekend hopefully, ripping out the front deck and part of the middle bench.

    I think it’s smart to not go with the fan. The 16’ would feel really small with a 52” blade on the back.

    The boat looks like an old design without the crimped sides or floor. the seats are likely structural bc I don’t see any horizontal bracing. If you going with a deck that sits on the rails, you will likely need to strengthen or brace the sides.

    Overall a solid template to work with.

    I think that is best, now you will now the limitations for when you build the fan

    The main thing you have to remember is when you put a outboard on it you will have to raise it up when using the fan. When the motor is trimmed all the way up it will be higher and closer to the inside of the boat then when trimmed all the way down. This could cause the fan shroud to hit it when turning.

    I talked to the guy at Lone Star and we've decided that a 48" 4-blade prop would be a better suit for this build. It's only 50 bucks more. And I should get the same amount of thrust as the 52" 3 blade.

    Could be. Maybe its just OCD for me lol I'd like to have an even number of lights up front... Thats just me tho
  • 01-10-2019
    jasonsuch86
    realistically I think 5 250w would be enough light
  • 01-10-2019
    jasonsuch86
    yes, 400w or 250w hps
  • 01-10-2019
