I have seen the layout and hybrid boats guys on here have built, and I think they are excellent. Enough so that I want to try and build one. This all is a preface to a bass boat rebuild that I will eventually do. I want to get a small working knowledge in fiberglass before I decide to split a hull and replace stringers in a big boat. I plan on building a modified lake erie style boat. When I go home, I have the opportunity to hunt large reservoirs, so the layout style would be ideal in that setting, but where I live, I can move from marsh to strip pit, so I think this style boat would be the most versitle. The boat will be pulled by my 1652, so some sort of a transom isnt an issue right now. I have emailed the guys at marsh-monster.com for some pictures. Apparently they have a v style planing hull as an option to their plans. If anyone knows what a carolina flare looks like, I will have a similar style flare, albeit much shorter.
Has anyone dealt with the people at marsh-monster?
