Default flounder boat

i have a 16ft. alluminum sea nymph bass attacker with a 50hp evinrude on it that i have been working on. i have got everything running, just working on some cosmetic stuff. i would like to know if you guys think it will do ok for some floundering.it has big front and rear areas for standing. do you think that this style of boat will hold up to some saltwater floundering? i saw in another post by flounderassissin that he had a generator setup. what kind of generator do you use on a boat for floundering? the only floundering ive done in the past is wading the shoreling with a tube and tub. i am going to attempt to post a pic, hope it comes out.

No way man! You need to get something else. I feel so bad, I'll take it off your hands! Seriously, it will be FINE. The only thing I suggest, is to pretty up the trailer and sell it to a freshwater guy, and go galv. or aluminum. A year or 2 of salt and that one will be scrap (just my opinion). ENJOY! I lean toward the 12V light systems(simple, cheap, QUIET!), but that's an argument that will go on forever!

i use a colmen powermate generator...a little louder then i would really like but i can deal with it for now. i used to have a 12v setup...very simple and NO noise...but i just got tired of having to deal with the batteries. with the generator just fuel it up and im good to go. i use a hand controled trolling motor mounted on thestbd side(right side) and always run with myport (left) side to the beach. since this is your first set up i suggest going with the 12vset up. i have the one that came off of my boat if your intrested just shoot me a PM. if you do decide to go with the generator i do suggest having 4 lights verses 3. gives much wider light with no dark spots. hope this helps!!!
