    Default Flats Cat Shallow Draft Boats

    If anyone is looking for a good shallow draft boat, check these out. On plane in three inches of water. Amazing demo videos of boat running. Check them out.

    Flats Cat - The shallowest flats boat. The ultimate fly fishing flats boat. The only catamaran flats boat

    i think i would hate trying fly cast off a bow like that
    more than likely id end up tripping on that little step

    They have several different models. I am amazed at running on plane in three inches.

    Wow- that is cool - first time I've heard of that boat. Gotta see one on the water sometime.

    yeah it is a great accomplishment
    but i also heard those rangers that im seeing everywhere run on 3-4 inches on plane but i was talking to a guide that borrowed one from a buddy and he said it really draws 5-6 on plane
    surprising for a boat that size.
    if i were to choose anyboat right now id either get a pathfinder, yellowfin 17, or a east cape canoe flats skiff

    Watch the performance videos. I have fished on Rangers, Nauticstars, and neither have shallow water performance like these boats.

    I TRAVEL over 3" of water 3-4 times a week to get to where the fish are at. But that's just me, I like to catch, not fish.

    Don't forget that is not equipped, and you kind of need to add a motor.
    Most boats come with one of those things on that back.

    With Rangers at 42k+ it is still a deal with an 8k motor and accessories...
