About This Lake and Bay Flats Boat

Overall this boat is in great shape. With all new rigging there will be no issues. I am the orriginal owner of this flats boat. The hull is in fabulous structural shape although needs a thourough buffing. There are some scratches on the bottom from working in super shallow water. The transom was painted black in 2013 with Awl Grip.

Comfort

The ride is impressive as any flats fishing boat on the market. My back cannot take the pounding anymore and the Lake and Bay offers me and my clients a smooth ride. The custom cushion I have made for seating accross the back is 9 inches thick. The forward seat over the cooler is padded as well makeing my clients very comfortable for our fast runs to the fishing grounds.

Speed

Most flats fishing boats are not all that fast. This boat breaks the mold when it comes ot speed for a traditional flats boat. I cruise about 42 mph and have top speeds into the mid 60's. This makes for more fishing time for my anglers and can smooth out a choppy day. Powered currently by a Mercury 175 Pro XS optimax.This power package offers the best fuel ecconomy and weight values without scrubbing lots of speed.

Draft

How shallow does it go? Well its as shallow as any 17 ft flats boat on the market today. An honest 11-13 inches deep if loaded right. I can get my anglers into tailing bonefish with little issues.. This is by no means a technical poling flats skiff.

Weight

My Lake and Bay flats fishing boat is very light. It is the last of the Lake and Bay flats fishing boats that I will ever own (unless the company gets bought by a better manufacturer). and was built in a Carbon Kevlar lay up.

Storage

I can keep a nice cooler of ice and bottled waters with pleanty of room for my clients things as well. Dont bring to much stuff but a couple bags are fine.

I have storage for 6 fly fishing rods fully extended and rigged.

Decking

On this boat I went with Sea Dek for my non skid. A super soft on the ankles and legs decking that is like gel. Very nice feature that does require either going barefoot or in socks.
