1989 Kingfisher


Jun 24, 2022
I wanted lots of deck, I wanted no seats, and I wanted a pure fly fishing boat to chase great northern pike on my favorite lakes. This is what I did.
I did replace the transom with carbon core ( worst customer service ever ) cause the old transom was in horrible condition. I got this beauty for $1000. So that afforded me money to try and level it out with a 12 gallon tank up front and 3 batteries ( only two at the moment ) to counter out the weight of the 80 HP motor. This did level it out. The bass boat is sort of a skiff now. It can still plane out at full throttle, but it plows through at lower speeds. In the end I would say I got what I wanted out of it
