Default My "New to Me" Flounder Boat

I thought that my boat had been posted before, but if not here is some “Overkill” info.

Grizzly 2072 – 20’3” long 96” wide – Float Pods just arrived/soon to be installed

Yamaha 90 hp with Stainless Steel prop, Tach, Trim, Hour Meter, and Water Pressure gauge. Fuel filter. Two Custom Fabricated Aluminum Fuel Tanks. Yamaha cowl cover.

CMC Hydraulic Jack Plate

Tandem Trailer with Brakes. E-Z Slide trailer pads. Front and Back roller guide posts. Custom trailer lights.

Honda EV6010 water cooled generator. 6000 watts, 50 amps.
Just added exhaust stack.
Remote start switch for generator. Forward Lights and “ALL” Lights switch.

10 @ 500 watt Halogen Lights for Platform – have ordered 400 watt HPS lights

Minn Kota Trolling motor 101 with Minn Kota 3 bank built-in battery charger.

Garmin Color 276 GPS with Southeast chip

AM/Fm CD player

Eagle Bottom Machine

Remote Control Spotlight and Hand Held Spotlight

Bow Mounted horn

12v Running Lights/Docking Lights

LED cockpit and cabin lights

1” Aluminum Railing around raised platform

4’ elevated platform – custom fabricated/ IE: shearing, breaking, etc.

Ultra Tuff coating over Aluminum deck

3 Batteries for trolling motor - 1 Battery for cranking motor - Battery switch

Custom Fabricated Console (Aluminum)

Custom Fabricated Dry box and Generator Box (Aluminum)

Custom Console Cover and Cuddy Cover with snaps.

5 Wise Seats (I have removed 4)
4 “butt” Seats on Platform

All wiring is professionally done by former commercial electrician

Lots of other goodies such as built in gaff holders, net holders, push pole holders, gig holders, etc. I bought this boat a few months ago and have been “tweaking” it for Floundering. The raised platform is like a tuna tower….it gives you LOTS more field of vision. If you put a 4’ ladder on your bow and stand on it you will see.

The fellow retired and built it over a two year period. He passed and I bought it from his son for 12k. He gave me receipts for over 30k he had put in it – not including his time. He was a master craftsman and he deserves any credit.

Thanks for the compliments. I love the whole hunting/fishing experience. Everytime I get on the boat I am impressed with what he was able to do with his hands. I can do anything with wood but not mechanical or metal fab, etc

Under the deck is 6 plus feet of room. The animal house theme would look pretty cool.

X-Shark has skills and I wish him and his boat the best. Not posted to compete. If I could just talk him into painting mine...I promise to go with a different color than his. J/k

That is one HELL of a rig!!! Thats a boat that lots of people dream of having. If you don't mind my asking, whats the trolling motor setup? The raised deck looks like it could present a challenge. Could you post some more pics of the front?
