  1. Who here has had to drag a fiberglass river boat over a shoal, gravel bar, etc? How hard is it with no one in the boat?
  2. I googled this and it looks like Missouri does have this same way of avoiding probate if conditions apply. I would make a visit to your county courthouse to see the right way to proceed with this method. I say county courthouse first instead of state of Missouri because each county may (or may not) have a say in the process.
  3. I dont live in Missouri so i dont know if they have this or a similar law, but in Arkansas there is a state form that can be filled out skipping the probate process as long as the transfer value is less than $100,000 and involves personal property(such as a boat, car, etc) and not real property(real estate) You might check into this.
  4. Its my understanding that some jack plates are for clamp on only and others allow for bolting on of the outboard. I wouldn't even consider one that don't allow bolting on.
  5. It does have a fair amount of rocker. The 207xp is the true flat bottom according to Supreme. I think the tunnel built into my boat was originally intended for prop use.
  6. So what do you suggest? I could care less about topend or roaring up and down the river. I just want a boat that is strictly a fishing boat, hence the supreme river boat. Thanks.
  7. As far as jet, ive never been in one of these boats equipped with a jet. Only been in one with a 15hp prop and it operated very shallow. Im thinking the weight of a jet would offset any advantage. No?
  8. I've recently purchased a Supreme L48XP and I believe i want a Mercury 20 HP prop (same weight as 15 HP, 95lbs). Shallow water will inevitably be encountered where i fish. Big question- should i use a lightweight jack plate or not? It would add 20lbs to the transom but im not running an electric start outboard so theres 70 lbs saved considering no battery and starter, etc. I think it would allow me to fine tune the prop up as far as possible for shallow water. Thoughts?
  9. 20 footer it is then! Thats kind of the answer I thought.
  10. Regarding the fiberglass trout boats, most are 20 foot length but i keep seeing a few 16 footers. I know the longer ones were built for guides that have several people in the boat. If a person was just fishing with one other person is there a reason a 16 footer wouldn't work? Stability issues?
  11. I am thinking all the guides on white river run props on fiberglass river boats. Maybe i am wrong.
  12. I do see these Supremes, etc fiberglass river boats with jet outboards. I was just told stick with prop for fishing boat. I don't know, I never run a jet. But I have been in a supreme boat with a prop and went over some very rocky water just inches deep in the north fork river.
  13. So, it's time for a river boat. I am having a hard time deciding what to get. I really, really like the supreme, shawnee, topwater, etc river boats. Love them! The issue for me is i will fish rivers like current river, eleven point, spring and those type of rivers as much as I will white river or north fork. The thing is, I rarely see one of these "trout boats" on these other rivers which are shallow and rocky just like north fork and white river. Everyone runs the aluminum river boats it seems with oversized jet motors. This will be strictly a fishing boat, so I think the fiberglass boats will be quieter, cooler in hot weather, have better control, etc. I dont need to roar up and down the river like i am in a race. I envision a supreme or similar with a 9.9/15 horse prop with guard being for me. So, why don't we see these style boats more outside of the white river country? Am I missing something here?
  14. It would be a long drive for you, but in Northeast Arkansas, there is 10,000+ acres of state ground called Shirey Bay/Rainey Brake WMA. It is mostly bottomland timber surrounded by crop fields. Let me assure you, it is absolutely OVERRAN with Timber Rattlers. I am not kidding and thank God they are not aggressive. Always been this way.
