go get on livingston or choke canyon on a 40 mph wind day and you won't want to go offshore anymore. flat bottom boats are badass for what they are made to do.

I don't know...

My brother went offshore in a 14ft flatbottom with a 20hp Johnny and a compass. Came back in one piece and caught some king...

If you are being serious, then you seem to have yourself talked into it. I personally wouldn't do it. Yes, if you catch a (long) dead calm day, you probably won't have a problem. Good luck. Most trips offshore change from the start to the end. I have a 21' Triton Intracoastal that I wouldn't chance taking to the jetties.

The jetties are the worst of it u got bad washing machine effect undertow cross tow and if tide is outgoing or in coming on a good day out past them is pretty easy going even coming if its a little ruff u got the waves in ur favor.Used to do it with my dad back in the 60`s in a 17t glastron 75hp evinrude 20 miles out to whistling bouy..
