According to what I have read here the ph-18 design lends itself well to a bass boat, it doesn't have to be considered just a flats boat. The hull is in fact very similar to many commercial bass boats. I think it would be a good choice for both your uses.

Awesome Mike!!
I haven't been around much, is the bimini top a homemade creation or did you buy it commercially, if so where?

Kudos to you for your efforts to help. It's a shame that a segment of our population is so close to being uncivilized that when they could be acting to help their neighbors they have instead turned into the kind of animals you might see in Sudan. Shooting at rescuers? Good lord, I hope the guard tro...

When I get around to building my boat a 24 yr old blonde would sure look nice on it.

What meranti is available?

I'm a little confused. Jacques announcement implies that BS 6566 meranti is no longer being shipped because of quality issues, and that the BS1088 is the only meranti sold now, yet 6566 is still listed at boat builder central.
Is 6566 available or not?

That's what I figured. I was just thinking that Jacques and co might want to take advantage of what seems to be high interest and add the layout option to the PH series to increase sales, but it's probably unnecessary.

bass boat again

It appears that a couple of bateau designs have been built as bass boats. Most bass boats seem to have two center seats (dual console?) full length decking, maybe fore and aft livewells, tackle and rod compartments, etc. What are your thoughts on a dedicated bass boat design/option, possibly using a...

Thanks, Mike I was leaning toward the GF because I thought it might be nice to have the planing hull, but since 2 out of the 3 lakes it will likely be used on are electric trolling motor only, I'm leaning toward the FL. So maybe I build a planing hull later and start with the FL-14. It will probably...

GF-14 or FL-14

I have two sets of plans for the future. One is the HB-20 the other GV-15. My eventual goal is a houseboat and a bass boat. I may not build the GV-15 and instead opt for the PH-18. These will be used in the larger resevoirs in central AZ. I have been doing some fiberglass composite projects like bui...
