Thanks RT. but it is the boat I have and I need to make the best of it. You aren’t kidding about the “canoe like round profile”. It tilts REALLY easy. I have almost fallen out of it several times. When you accelerate from a idle or stop, it can get pretty squirrely very easily. Scares the crap out of you if your not paying attention!
I agree, my model A really rows well and is excellent with small motors, My model FL is much better with bigger planing motors. Just a few inches wider but planes much nicer. Trim tabs or hydrofoils don’t really compensate for the width….
To solve your problem, install steering wheel in the front and it will work safer. believe me. I know.
Actually, I was tinkering with the idea of building a dash/steering wheel/ remote controls. Something I can easily remove and mount as needed. I just don’t have a dash, a steering wheel, or a remote control.
Scott Parrish added all of that to his 12 foot Sea King boat. I think it runs a 15 hp or more, my big 260 pound carcass in that little boat is a fun ride….
Mine is a 13ft Duratech with mark 28.
