Goal is to try and have novelty meet function in the middle somewhere.

I still say the Cat style hull would REALLY turn some heads.  8-)

I think what cart is trying to say is ....... This is obviously going to take A LOT of hard work.  When you get done, wouldn't you rather have something function a lot better than it looks.  I mean, what is the point at having a boat you can only look at??

Oh believe me, If I build it, it will be more than fishable!! This won't sit on a shelf.

I think his point is that I could have more space and more room with other designs. Totally true but I would be willing to sacrifice some of those for novelty. I'm also the guy who takes very little on board. I don't even own a tackle box, all my tackle stores under my front seat,lol

My biggest concern is having a dry bag to keep my camera and next set of clothes dry. With this set up, I'll have much more DRY storage.

Look at the 2 side by side,...pretty similar.

Hmmm....

Looks like a typical summer weekend on Lake of the Ozarks.

I'd need a new seat, underwear, and a water hose if I was running like that.  ;)

LBH you could buy a Ranger and cut it in half.  They float up right.

Cart7 Yep.  Up on the osage or glaze it looks pretty typical.

Hey LBH... why not go for broke!

Here is a model that will increase your catch ratio tremendously with your lookout person located beneath in the mini sub.  Just think about it. CAST A LITTLE TO THE LEFT OVER!  

And let's not even discuss the underwater videos we'll all start to see.

I am working on underwater pictures as we speak.  With your clear water you should be able to take some cool pics no problem.  Supposedly this camera will take pics up to 50 ft.

Unerwater video might cost some serious $$$$$$$$$$$$$.

That little tunnel hull boat your link points to would be perfect. Again, wide front deck with cat sponsons to stabilize the thing.  I'm afraid the first video LBH does on that pointy nose mini V hull will be eligible for Americas Funniest home video's.  ;)

Mini boat, 4,300 bones; then : All you need is a 50 HP outboard motor and a need for speed.... I don't understand ? , all I need is a 50 hp :;), man with all I need plus the 4,300 bones the boat is worth I could have purchased a fully rigged aluminum bassboat or a smaller fully rigged glass boat for staters.

The catch is to build an affordable fully rigged mini bass boat.

Wohoo ! I think I found a hull:

LBH, if you want to go with the bass boat in half Idea. I would check out if there are some other bass boats in the area and ask the people if you could please make a template of their hull or at least a picture, then interview them on the fishability when up on front, then start from there.

COOL IDEA!!!!

This is one of the best threads I have seen since joining this forum. It is great to see so many ideas, really makes you think. With that being said I have to agree with Cart. I can picture my 17'6" Nitro cut down to 12' from the back to front and I see no way to make the boat stable enough to stand on the front decking. I can see the boat tiping over forward in my minds eye. However LBH if you can pull off that look (little bass boat look) with stability it will sell I have no doubt.

From here he got the idea, the catch is that the boat in the thread is a carbon fiber boat, lot$$$$$$$$$ of dough.

Got the pic from Bassassasin 's link LBH, just don 't ask me specifically from which of the multiple manufacturers cuz I don 't remember, I just browsed and there it was. Click where it says "Boats by Brand" on the left and good luck browsing, there 's a lot stuff there.

Here's what I've been using. It's a wavewalker.

I'm now adding a trolling motor, which I'm gonna test today.

And here's a picture of the trailer I updated this week so I don't have to put it on my roof top.

Motor mount is on & getting ready for my test drive.

The boat is 52lbs, the hulls have lots of storage, I can stand (I use Outriggers)

you can stand with out them, but you better have good balance.

I got rid of my yak because it's so hard to get in and out of.

This boat is a very easy entry & exit. I love it!
