I've come to the conclusion that the only way i'm going to get a bait boat for less than £300 is if I build my own from scratch. So over the next 3-4 months I will post my success or failure of every part from designing to building to taking it on to the water.

 

Any one who is intested i will post all diagrams and details on how to do this so you can follow from step to step until finally creating your own bait boat.

 

Its all well and good buying a bait boat and using it. But you will feel on top of the world if you built the boat which help you catch your personal best.

 

I'm going to start by drawing up some concept ideas and if you feel up to a chalange then draw up some of your ideas and post them.

On you go matey, I'll be watching with interest. If all goes to plan, why not go into business and make them to order?????

One good reason to do something is better than a thousand bad excuses not to.

I would not have the time to make and sell them I'm at college during the week. (USING COLLEGE COMPUTER AT THE MOMENT)And I work at the weekend to earn fishing spending money. I just want to help people who are not sure what to do. So i will post each step e.g. screw into this screw hole. To make it simple for those who interested.

Excellent, looking forward to it. How much do you plan on spending? and will you advise wher we can source materials and components?

Just my opinion....

 

Might it not be easier to modify a boat kit and just an extra servo to tip your bait etc in?

originally i was going to do that but found out it is far cheaper building from scratch and easier than first thought.

Atfer many concept ideas I have finally drawn up what I feel will be the choosen design. Now atfer drawing it I could'nt scan it in as it was on A3 paper but I have used a simple microsoft program to recreate the drawing.

I would most appretiate if you could add your opinions. And i will get onto drawing up a technical drawing taking into account size of boat to size of electronics etc.

So, you've decided on a twin hull design. I imagine it will be a fairly stable boat, especially when the water gets a bit choppy like it does.

 

I take it you are suggesting a twin hopper design also?

 

What materials do you intend to construct the boat from? Interesting post, one I'll be keeping my eye on.

 

Have you any ball park figures of an approximate cost for your design yet? I'd be interested to know what the final outlay turns out to be. I assume it will be markedly cheaper than any shop bought or redeveloped commercially available boat.

 

Good luck with the design and build. :thumbs:
