Yes the F-23 does have a tunnel and it will run skinner than the Transport as it has a wider bottom. I have been in most of the back lakes in Matagorda Island in one. You just have to remember that it is a 23 ft. boat. It also handles the big water very well. Capt. John Frankson helped design and build the first one. He has been running it for several years now. He has a 150 Yamaha TRP on it at this time.driftfisher said:Does the TransPort F23 have a tunnel? I've only seen pictures of them in the water and never seen one up close. Is that the Transport you have Redfishr? Does anyone know if the F23 is similar in performance and features to Mowdy/JH/Explorer that are so often brought up when tunnel V's are mentioned. Had to ask, not many Transports around here. Thnx.
