Jmackin, it does look like the one with the wheel house only cc. thanks for the iboats I think mine is the gulfstream 24 300 h. p.
max thats alot for a nearly flat deadrise. Ernie in the research I have been doing I found out about the bales too, some one asked about my fuel tanks, two large saddle tanks and one in the floor,I guess they didn't want to run out of fuel before the cows got to eat. Thomas thanks for the link, the boat they call the porta 24 is the same exact hull, I did find out the porta is a 24 t craft and that boat was Scott porta's(I think Scott's last name is spelled different ? ) demo boat for the porta bracket he invented. Thomas on their site they own uglyboat.com to and the outcast 24 is the same hull. I appreciate all the help lot of info here. thanks

Default 21' T Craft Flat bottom with skag

Does anyone know where a decent 21' T Craft open with center console might be located. There should be a few of those boats sitting around Florida.

If anyone is looking for a t-craft, the molds are now owned by Scott Schoof of Gulf Coast Marine and Power in Bradenton. They are all custom built stable fishing platforms. 24' long w/ 10' beam. Reasonable prices. Scott just rebuilt my Dusky transom and did an awesome job with his team.

First one was completed about 3 weeks ago and a well known charter capt here is demo'ing it and trying to break it to no avail. I believe Scott just posted a video on YouTube showing the boat running and drafting in like 10" of water.

When I was down checking out my transom job, he did have an older t craft he was doing some work on. They were also doing repairs on a boat they were calling a 'robin' but I don't much about it. The t craft he just finished isn't named. But you may see It around as the guide who fishes it has a tower with controls, and a fwd Bimini with a 250 Yammy.

There's a 24 T-craft sitting at Three Rivers Marine in Crystal River if anyone is looking for one.

Ive fished off of a 24' T craft for a couple of years with a friend out of Venice. It was a stout hull. He had one 200 yam 2 stroke on it and could run 45 mph wide open and cruise at 28 comfortably. It was a reasonably dry ride but did pound a little in mean seas over 3'. That flat stern didnt like high seas but the modified V made the ride tolerable.

Default Robin 24

The Robin 24 was originally sold and marketed by Florida SunCoast Marine (http://www.fsmarine.com/boats.html) but the hulls were actually made by Accurate Fiberglass in the Ft. Pierce area. Accurate sold a number of these hulls direct to customers and SunCoast subsequently dropped the hull from its lineup due this backdoor selling issue.

The Robin is based upon the original T-craft 24 mold. The hulls were very well made and there are a number around especially down in the Keys.

Accurate apparently sold the molds to Mike Vernese of UglyBoatInc.com. Mike splashed a few of these hulls called Outcast 24. Vernese made a few interesting versions of this hull including a flats boat type layout with a 4' casting deck at the transom with built in livewells and storage and a nearly flush front casting deck. Talkj about fish ability on the flats for a charter guide.

Scott Schoof now has the mold or has made one from a plug. Not sure about this transition. He has various youtube videos (search t-craft boatworks).

These boats are stout as hell. The Accurate Fiberglass Robin 24 version was available as a "no wood" construction hull. They were foam filled and had all sorts of options available including fresh water tanks, 90 gal fuel cells, Custom front bunks, upgraded resin finish, etc....

Scott Porta has one as previously mentioned and it was said to do in excess of 50mph with a raced tuned 225 outboard.

On a seperate note this thread made mention of a boat made in Orlando. I believe it is in reference to the hull made by Mike Martin of Martin Manufacturing. It is marketed as the 240 bay. This is the old Trevco 24 mold by Trevor Hansen. The hull is more like the old morgans or aquasport. Very upswept at the bow with huge walk on top gunwales. This boat is very nice. Its history had a bump in the road about 5-7 years ago when an unscrupulous builder out of Tampa purchased the molds from Trevco and was building an inferior product, ripping people off and running his business into the ground. Under this tenure the boat was marketed as the Boca Grande Skiff. I would stay away from the models made during this time period unless you can get a good inspection of the boat construction. Mike Martin is building a great boat and answers his phone!

I have lots of pics of these boats if anyone is interested.

Just my .02
