The whole idea was to get a boat that would run in less than 1ft of water. They have this 18ft Bay boat allready, but have never tested it in shallow water. They are going to test it this weekend and if it will draft then they decided to get a jack plate and Voilla. I think they are just looking for something smaller w/ a smaller motor to concerve gas.
unless they made some changes between 2000 and 1996 the 210 Fisherman is a tunnel hull. My buddy just got rid of his 2000 210 Fisherman that had a Johnson 175 on it because of operating expenses. Juke, I can tell you that the Fisherman, even though it is a big a$$ boat it will run in less than a foot of water. I have been back up in the marshes in the back of Trinity Bay in one and know we were in less than 12 inches of water, because we made a wrong turn into a dead end, and once we turned around (on plane) I looked back and there was nothing but mud...no prop wash...just mud, but the boat stayed on plane and we never got stuck...
