trihull converted into bass boat

Recommended Posts

My grandfather just gave me a 16 or so foot trihull boat! It has a very old engine which I think I'm gonna replace with a merc but I am wondering have any of you guys built decks on your tri hulls front or back? I appreciate any ideas!

If it's an older boat, before you do anything, make sure the transom is good.

If you are good with fiberglass, you can make any way you want.   It will probably end up costing more in time and money than you really save over just buying an older bass boat.

If you are talking about using a bunch of wood and just building decks on it, probably will be pretty heavy when done, but again. but if you are handy with the stuff, a sawsall and enough wood and you can do it.  Just don't expect to have a nice modern looking bass boat when done.

Tri-hull boats ride very rough in water that is even a little bit choppy. Before you invest any time or money, take the boat out on the water and ride around to see if  this boat will be something you will want to spend time fishing from. Re powering, adding decks, floors, seating, trolling motors and electronics, will take a lot of time and money. It could be the most expensive "free" boat you've ever seen. Buying a used bass boat would probably be cheaper and certainly be much less work.
