Shallow Water Boats
My partner and I are looking for a shallow water boat. We want to avoid a jet, if a tunnel hull, such as used by the Florida flats skiffs, will do [almost] as well.
The experts on this board can help me by describing the approximate dimension of tunnels on hulls they are familiar with.
For example, a boat made in Oregon offers a tunnel 8" high by 18" wide. Since a typical prop is 12-13 inches in diameter [not including skeg], 8" does not seem adequate. A friend in Texas told me his Kenner's tunnel was 4" high. Seems too little to me.
What tunnel dimensions are used by Hewes and Hells Bay Boatworks in Florida area?
Thanks in advance for your help.
