  • Beavertail Final Attack layout boat?

    Does anyone have any experience with this boat/blind setup? I'm thinking if I threw a 35hp trolling motor on it, it'd work for RS, Maud Rd areas.

    I've played around with one a few times. Having never seen the conditions at Rabbit Slough or Maud myself, I can't say whether it would work there or not, but I have a few comments:

    It was stable in shallow water, but I wouldn't try to use it in deeper water. If you fell out of it, or it flipped, you'd be totally hosed in water more than chest deep. It also didn't have the space I had expected given the descriptions and the reviews (not enough for me and my dog). It was somewhat of a tank to paddle, as it plows water rather than planing or parting the water. A trolling motor would work, but it will be slow and eat your battery down in no time. If you have a little gas kicker, that might be even more dicey having lots of weight in the back.

    Hopefully some other people have other experience, but I wouldn't go out of my way to get one of these given my experience with them. I think you would be better off with a layout with a tub for very shallow water, or a canoe in deeper water.

        Who makes 35HP trolling motors?? I'd think you'd need a half dozen 12 volt batteries to get anywhere and BACK!!

          I'm guessing he ment one with 35# of thrust.
