Tiny-boat style kit designed, built, and installed. All aluminum framing, ½ inch plywood sub-floor and decking. Closed-cell flotation foam used under the sub-floor to increase rigidity and add buoyancy. Gas-shocks and latches on the hatches. Tons of storage, 2 rod lockers (hold 7 rods each) plus rod straps on both sides of the deck.
The boat is set up primarily for electric propulsion. 56 lb-thrust bow mount trolling motor. On the rear is a tiller style 55 lb-thrust trolling motor. The trolling motors are on their own power circuit (with a circuit breaker) separate from the fish finders. It won’t win any races, but it gets around very well, and is great for smaller lakes and no-wake lakes. Power comes from 2 group 27 marine batteries hooked up in parallel for 12v power for both. Power cables routed from the rear to the front using 00awg marine grade wiring through conduit. I have fished full day tournaments with no battery power loss. The front trolling motor is capable of running on either a 12v or 24v set up, but the rear is only able to run in 12v.
Helix 5 DI mounted in the front; transducer mounted on the front trolling motor. Helix 7 G2 (Chirp/Side Imaging/GPS) mounted in the middle, with a rear mounted transducer. The fish finders share a battery and a battery kill switch and are each on a fused link (per manufacturer installation recommendations). No issues running both for a full day of fishing.
Mounted in the battery compartment is a ProMariner Pro Sport 15 3-bank, 15-amp on-board battery charger. Just plug an extension cord into the charger at the end of the day and all 3 batteries are charging.
The trailer is in very good shape. All lights are operational. Bearings and races were inspected last spring and are in great shape. I installed stainless-steel bearing buddies and packed the bearings with fresh grease and topped the hub off after re-assembling. Boat has been towed to Lake of the Ozarks and western Nebraska with no issue. Boat buckles self-retracting ratchet straps installed to secure the rear of the boat to the trailer easily and securely. Installed a new 1100 lb rated hand winch for pulling/securing the front of the boat to the trailer. Tires are relatively new and in great shape, and a new spare tire was added last summer.
No fishing rods, tackle, etc. which may appear in pics are included in the sale. Emergency oar, battery powered lights, and extra set of trailer bumper guides are included.
Lots of work went into this boat and will make a great fishing boat for you. I have more pics from the build project if you wish to see. There are likely other additions I am forgetting to mention. I do not need help selling and am not interested in trades.
