Re: FS14- Bayou City Boat

I like all those anchor storage pics. Leaves the bow open and still easy to get to anchor when wanted and room for a trolling motor if wanted. Sure do agree one needs an anchor on board, for safety if nothing else. Trolling motor will hold 90+% of the time, but the time it failed I'd be upwind of th...

Re: FS14- Bayou City Boat

I just had this thought. Given how effective those pricey gps trolling motors with anchor lock are, maybe an anchor in a fishing boat isn't as useful as it use to be anymore. Of course it's necessary for long stops and emergencies, but otherwise not used when just fishing. I know the motorguide Ript...

Re: FLATWATER SK14

Lithium ion is the way for light weight, but as Jaysen says, pricey. Price is slowly coming down. I use a 50 AH AGM in my SK14that weighs around 50 lbs. I hate it, too heavy.
