Well i finally got what I call a steal. The price was right. I started a different boat blind project but sold it for a good profit. This one is perfect. 22 foot, 60 hp, the floor is poly, trailer is brand new.
This will have a kitchen, a crapper and heaters. The last time I spent the night in a boat waiting on the opener, I was hammered on JD,it was 38 degrees and i woke up with the rain on my face. No more of that. Air matress,a roof and heaters. That how I will be rolling.

I will be very interested to watch this build! One question… How shallow does that draft? Seems like that would be one down side to it.

Looks to me it will draft in a foot of water. That is a downside but it is what it is. I thought about a longtail for it.

When i got to the yard and stopped,one tire on one side looked like a matted hairbrush. It was completely shredded. The one in front of it was holding the rear one up just enought to keep the rear rim from getting damaged. So I go to see what all damage happened and as I walked up, the front one collapsed. Wahoooooo all I asked was to get it hhome. We made it clap

I have built a few, they are big, comfortable and fun to hunt out of! This was the last one I built for a customer. Had aluminum studs, lockable, bench, 4 swivel seats, table with grille, portable potty with small covering, heather stands for 5gal propane and a stripper pole! <jk.
