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..

Yes you see there the reason they sank? Probably too much expensive [censored] and that boat that was just worthless like power poles and anchors and batteries and a bunch of junk if they would have been a little bit lighter on that boat they wouldn't had a problem and also that rig they were stopped at that's just a satellite it does not even have anybody living on it the worst thing you can catch underneath that sucker is maybe a blue fish or something that was a waste right there if they would have went a little bit farther they could have been on the good grouper fishing grounds. I hope you hear me talking here Uncle Zeke because I want to tell you right now if that would have happened to me I would have bailed that damn boat out with a 5 gallon bucket. And paddled it in. Amateurs.

Just because you can doesn't mean you should. And no you should not.

That boat is not meant to be in a sudden squall or, as someone else said, if a much larger ship passes you and throws up a 10 ft wake.

We don't want to read about the search for you later, please don't do it.

Did you know??? hold on a second I want to make sure that every Texas fisherman knows the truth about this little-known secret that I'm about to divulge right here on the Texas Fishing Forum did you know that if you have a 15 foot boat you pay less taxes to get that some of a pitch registered every year that's right if you have a 15 foot boat you pay less in your registration fees and if you would had a 16 foot boat or something bigger that's going to be one of the deal breakers for me and the reason I'm keeping the 15 foot boat and I'm taking it off shore.
