I like being high off the water....kind of like having a tuna tower to sight fish
Pic is my boat prior to modifications (HPS, Tiller Motor, etc)

My two biggest concerns would be #1 Draft #2 Handling

Yes I remember seeing gnwdad's boat. Later that night they were across the bay from us. It looked like a freaking parking lot lite up over there.

Overkill, that thing just looks mean. Do you even have to poke the flounder, or do they just give up?

lol , i would drop dead if i saw that coming too

pontoon is a great flounder rig , my friend has a 14' pontoon rigged with lights gets in pretty skinny waters too and lots of deck room , easy to steer if trolling motor is mounted in the back

I've got 2 pontoon's off a hobie that I planned on making into a floundering rig.....So when I start the project, I'll start snapping shots to keep folks posted....It's gonna be a redneck rig, nothing like overkill or Xshark!!!!
