Nope not always but it is close enough most of the time.
Where I use the boat it will work, the rest of the time is spent wading.

Man i just noticed the date stamp on my camera is a year off :laughing:

24 HP Honda on Beavertail Drive.

I know the pics are blurry, I did not have contacts in at the time and my camera was set on manual focus rather than automatic. So what looks clear to me with unaided vision is terrible for you guys with 20/20

I wish! I was in the market for one but just couldnt bring myself to pay so much for a used boat, but it is very similar.
The boat in the Pic is a StumpknockerII made by Griffis and Sons in Starke.

I love it , I have had the hull since I was 13. The false floor was rotten so it sat for a few years untill I had the bright idea to put a mudmotor on it, actually I had just bought the motor and had nothing to hang it on :thumbsup:

There is no seating, the floor was replaced with 1/2 inch foam as the guys are using on the foam boats, then topped with 1/4 marine ply and fiberglassed in. All the seams were filled with marine "bondo" before glassing. Added ribbing ala jon boat style. Two men can carry the hull with no motor or rigging attached. I had problems with porpoising so I put a set of self adjusting trim tabs on and it solved the problem. Even helped with shallow water starts to a degree.

those seminoles are HEAVY! a buddy of mine has one and we got hung up in some mud and ended up having to push it for about a 100 yards thought i was going to fall over with a heart attack. very nice boats though.

what do ya need seats for? they just get in the way... :thumbsup:
