I think :lol:
Yea.....just put a couple G depo on one of these. Its a custom 18ft Florida style flats boat.....made in Minn. The cool thing about it is the owners on the co. know about bowfishing and are going to customize it for bowfishing.
Instead of rod boxes, they are going to be fitted with special brackets to hold strung recurves, and will have arrow holders in it. The small front casting deck will be about 4 by 5 and have the lights built into them so it looks like part of the boat. alot of guys use this for flounder gigging in Fla., and have floods built into the hull under water......so will this one.
Its 18ft long and can handle high seas pretty good, does about 30 with a 25HP, so my 40 is going to make it fly. the rails are 14.5 in. wide so you can stand anywhere on it. Gotta think of more custom bowfishing touches for it though.....oh yea.....it will push pole thru 3.5 in. of water!
