ive just been on http://www.evolutionbaitboat.com/ and saw the full kit for making the evolution bait boat for 215. to buy one ready made it would cost 549.99 so under half.

i was wandering if anyone had made one of these or knows someone who has and how they turned out. aslo i wanted to know if you think its a good idea or not.

Sorry cant help with the one you mention.

As a guide to price a model maker friend built me one for 150 back in 1991 for my piking.
And thats my "non indicative opinion"!

I've seen one of these on the water and it was'nt too stable in choppy conditions due to it being single hulled. Basically it's just a normal boat hull converted to be a bait boat.

If your interested in buidling your own then they are very cheap to build, either convert a normal radio controlled boat (costs about 50 or less depending on what sort of range your after) or if your really keen you can build your own from scratch (easier than it sounds.... honest....)

I've built 3 different boats over the years both for piking and carping.
There's no such thing as a bad days fishing..

You can build your own even cheaper. Depending on what uses you want it for. I dont like the hull on that one it wont last long in a swell. All my boats over the years were built for piking big ressies. Best hull i ever seen was a life boat type. Not very pretty but when sealed water tight and unsinkable. Keep it simple.

I don't use a baitboat, but if I was looking to buy one, I'd probably have looked for a catamaran style one.

Now you've mentioned a more 'traditional' style hull, Wayne, I'm not so sure now :)

A friend who makes SUBMARINES!! IS at present taking my boat to bits and first thing he said was??? How the BLOODY hell does that get anywhere with a single hull!!!

IF he makes a success of it he WILL go into making boats on a full time basis after I had words with him!!

WATCH this space guys!

It is to be observed that 'angling' is the name given to fishing by people who can't fish.

If GOD had NOT meant us to go fishing, WHY did he give us arms then??


(If you can't help out someone in need then don't bother my old Dad always said! My grandma put it a LITTLE more, well different! It's like peeing yourself in a black pair of pants she said! It gives you a LOVELY warm feeling but no-one really notices!))
