So this thing is truly a tank. It's right in between the size of an Albany, and a Hudson Bay. and the stern is 3.5ft. wide! So it essentially looks like a mini James Bay Freighter with such a wide stern. It's made of fiberglass and here's the dimensions of this beast:
18ft. 2in. length
4.5ft. wide beam
19 in. depth at stern
21 in. depth at center
25 in. depth at bow
2.5 in. of rocker from fulcrum to bow.
estimated total boat weight of 200 lbs
one shallow hardwood keel with a steel plate that goes up the bow.
Fiberglass in perfect condition and very very dense. I can't get it to cave with pressure like a scott canoe.
Here is the history of the boat: it sat for 10 years at Redshirt lake prior to being hauled out on a freight sled.
for 10 years prior to that, it sat on some guy's property prior to it actually being used as a "trolling" rig".
No Hull ID number
green in color.
It really needs a minimum of a 15 horse, and would be best suited with an 18 hp. surface drive due to such a wide stern and insanely wide beam. Can you say big water, and snappy tight water maneuvering in one boat?! Definitely wouldn't respond well to a paddle.....that's for dmn sure.
Pictures to follow....................
