I have the safe floor in my bay boat (Gilf Coast). It is awesome for traction and cleanup, but it is hell on your knees when you are working on your boat. Also gets hot in the summer.

Great looking boat.

That is impressive, let me know if you need someone to help hold down the front of the boat once teal season kicks in. ;)

The problem with those in mn is you'd be the only one with one on most lakes. If you had motor trouble (or an Assa lack-of-gas trouble) you would phuckered pretty good because there wouldn't be many people that could reach you.

Nice rig.

I don't doubt it but I wouldn't want to push pole that thing through a bog. Still want one though! :)

If its soft enough that its hard to push out of then the motor can get you out no problem.
And its been a blast now that i got one! Im seeing 23-24mph in deep water and 27-28mph in shallow water. And i was able to get on step with it the other day in straight up mud with maybe .5" of water over it. My walkin days are over!

Oh believe me, its a blast! I do stuff in it i never would have dreamed i can do in a boat.
The only thing i dont like about it is how much it takes to turn it....once you start to turn alittle it takes over and turns it's self with so much torque i gotta put my whole body weight into it so that it dosent push me outa the boat or rip the throtle out of my hands. Unless you let off the gas, then its not as much torque, but nobody got time fo dat :lol3:
