Why'd you raise the back seat up?

raising the seat, raises your center of gravity! That is a stable boat, but lest stable with two guys and even less with a high seat.

Because I'm a little taller than most and I couldn't see over my knees when it was down low.

We hunted in it this weekend down at sabine refuge and it's still nice and stable for two big guy and every body seem to love the blind when they would come by in there canoes. With two big boys you can use no smaller than a 55 # thrust trolling motor if you have any current.

I think you may have just ruined a $1,200 boat... you would've gotten the same thing done if not better with a small 12 foot or 14 foot john with a trolling motor.

I'm really not sure why you would think that I ruined a $1200 boat other than maybe you being a total @$$hole. I work for my toys so if it works for me than that's all that really matters. But to tell you why it works for me it starts like this. I have a skeeter ZX22 center console and the stealth rides great on the front. We hunt in south LA so we use both boats. Anyway most people seem to love the blind it takes about five mins. To set it up. And three mins. to remove it . Thanks
