Both of those boats will run in 2' of water. What kind of water do you have to run to get to said creeks? If it's open water with lots of chop, the MA is likely going to be the better choice. If...

It's not just rentals, you can buy a boat and use it 2 times a year, thus having little experience with your boat and different conditions nature can throw your way. I haven't damaged anyone's boat,...

All of what you say to me points to the Pioneer. And I owned a Scout that I was very happy with. The 115 on the Pioneer is listed as "minimum" hp and the 90 on the Scout is marginal as well. Just...

Is option 2 fiberglass? Option 2 sounds a little like my first boat and could be nice. Your issue with older riveted jon boats will be leaking. It gets annoying. I had a 14' old Sears Gamefisher that...

I liked it better before.


Just kidding! Nice work. I would suggest trying a strong wax or protectant on those surfaces now.

Couple options, maybe. Where are you located? Maybe has one you could borrow? You could possibly buy and return if the motor does not work? Maybe a little shady...

I just upgraded from 18" wheels to 20" wheels myself and didn't notice a much less improved ride. It's maybe a little more firm but still a very comfortable ride. But, I still have a good bit of...

What color is the pipework and other accents on the boat? Personally, I like them to match. I didn't have the option to have a white 115 Mercury OptiMax so I chose black powdercoat, black rubrail,...

I would also say the Action Craft 1720. It'a an all around great boat for its size, including its ability to take a chop.

Why are you wanting to sell? I think it's interesting how many older hulls I see for sale with very new (less than 20 hours) outboards. I think if I plan to repower my boat it will be to keep it....

What kind of boat? Are these starboard hatches/doors? Or are they gel coated/have non-skid on them?

I can't take the poll. My ideal boat is about 18 feet, at least for the type of inshore fishing I do. If I were to buy an offshore boat, I'd want it to be in the 25 foot range.

Big con of the trolling motor is that battery life, especially at 6mph, will be very limited. It MIGHT be able to maintain 6mph but probably not into a strong current or wind. Are you thinking...

I personally don't see how I could justify owning a boat if I did not fish. I take the boat out once a week on average to fish, often by myself, and sometimes just for a two hour trip. The average...

Best site I have found for finding board shorts. Go to Surf Fanatics site and look at the board shorts that are on sale or clearance. They'll tell you if they have zippered pockets or not. I usually...

You're seeing 52 mph on a 22' Bulls Bay with a 150hp? That seems impressive. I'd think you would be in the 45mph range with T-Top and 36V trolling motor but I never would have guessed you'd see 52mph...

I can only confirm that they are annoying, especially for someone trying to stalk redfish in shallow water. I just ended up replacing mine.

What type of fishing? Do you need a trolling motor? Is shallow draft important? Sounds like you may just be anchoring and chucking bait?
