My fishing boat is a white fiberglass, dual console bass boat (V hull) that wont float in skinny water.
I want to build a Hybrid to hunt from in skinny water and transport it in the pickup bed to avoid trailering.
I bought a 6 1/2 hp to build a mud motor for it, but I see the Coast Guard guidelines rates the hybrids at 3 h/p max.
The state requires a motorized boat must be licensed, so the Coast Guard guidelines will catch up to me during registration.
What would you do?
1. Camo the bass boat, travel faster and hunt deeper water.
2. Build a hybrid, power it with a 3 h/p mud motor and travel slower.
