This boat was my fathers, and I inherited it when he died in 2008. At that time I was big into bass fishing and built the boat into a great bass jon. After a few years I had gotten more into kayak fishing and stopped using the boat as much, and all together after a trip to the Texas coast ended with a hole in the boat.
Fast forward 8 years. I wanted to build a scooter because now I am a huge marsh and river fishing fiend. I wanted to build a scooter, and while researching I had an idea instead of building something new, why not do some recycling?
Out with the old, heavy decking/floor. I am going with a much leaner setup. Basically going to put a floor in, a 3-4ft front drop deck, and rear deck that will cover the rear bench seat and go to the transom. The battery and gas tank will be moved foward and to the port side to counteract the weight from the pilot seat(using tiller handle outboard.
Currently researching building pocket tunnel, and deciding if I want to build or buy pods. engine is a long shaft yamaha 40hp tiller. The motor is a built duck boat motor, had the works done by hydro tec.
More info to come.
