My new back water boat project is finally complete and ready for the water. I have high hopes for this little rig.

I've been seeing some cool looking short boats lately..... Easy to haul and get the job done......


Jigging; it's faster than chasing a minner in a bucket!

When I first got this boat It didn't have a drain plug and would hold rain water like a bath tub. So I put a bulkhead fitting in the deck.
now it 's self bailing.

bimini top?


COMING SOON! .. THE STICKLE HOOK " the stay level sickle hook". sits level in the water with all knots.! Provides better hook sets and more natural jigging motion. No more adjusting the knot, gluing , or tying loop knots that cause the hook point to tangle in the loop, or worse knick the line.. The jighook that will make all others obsolete !

It's a 3.5 hp motor I found on Amazon. It's cheap and load but pushes the little boat along pretty good.
If you get one you will need to check the lower unit for lube as there is none in it.
open the carb. adjustment screw up a 1/2 turn or it will be hard to start.
