23' Haynie

I believe the 22' sea chaser with a 2003 150 Yamaha to be the ultimate combination offshore, bay, flats, back bay, bone fish, crappiethon, riverrunner, catfish, bream, striper, reds, flounder, duck hunting, deer hunting, alligator, trotline, gilnet, crabpot, competitive sheephead tournament, and pleasure cruising boat ever made. Now we just need to make it catch more fish. But to answer your question, wait, what was the question?

Later,

Joey

Oh.............................I'm sorry...................................I thought this was the opinions on 23 ft Haynie Bigfoot thread.

I see I stumbled into the Sea Chaser is the best all-round boat thread.



LOL

While your at it look at, Blazer bay, Explorer, Pathfinder, Kenner, Bay stealth, K2marine, Ranger, Skeeter, Robalo, Champion, Flats Cat, Shallow sport, Tran Sport, Triton, El Pescador, LOLOLOLOLOL LOL LOL

REALLY GUYS THIS THREAD IS ABOUT HAYNIE BOATS!!!!! Haynie boats are great!!! So many people will try to tell you"MINE IS BETTER" But really ignore all the fluff and look at the options and make up your mind on what boat will suit your needs..

I have crawled allover the Bigfoots and can not find a single thing wrong with them, Smooth, dry, shallow ect.

Me and a couple of other guys were fishing one day in March with a guy who runs a Bigfoot in Baffin. We were fishing in the afternoon in front of a cold front and we ended up in the cold front. We had between a 5 - 10 mile run back in at least a 30 mph wind and four to five foot seas. All I remember is he kept saying, "We're alright boys! We're alright!". Wouldn't say I was scared, but that's definitely the most nervous I've been in a boat. Haynie brought us back safely and that boat took a beating. They are definitely well made boats. I also had a Seadrifter for a few years that I beat the hell of and never had a problem with it.

A technicality, but if you want your PM to go through, you'll PM Bassfreeks instead of Bassfreaks.

I run the 21T, wouldn't own another boat. Thought about the Bigfoot but just didn't need a 23' boat right now. You can't go wrong with the 23', big dry ride, shallower than you would believe a V-Hull Tunnel will get, handles and rides like a cadillac. Go see Chris or Brian they will give you a ride in one and you can make up your own mind

Awsome boats

I don't own the Big foot, But I do run the 20' flats. I have had mine for 8 years, and I don't baby it. The quality is AWSOME! They're just rock solid boats.

** Haynie Bigfoot **

I have had my Bigfoot for almost 2 years...I got lucky (very lucky) and stumbled upon it. Best stumble I ever had...rides great, shallow or choppy. Brian at Chris' Marine in Aransas Pass will hook you up!!!

23' Bigfoot is a very nice boat. I thave 4 neighbors running them. Two have 200 Optimax and 2 w/ 225's. When one neighbor said he needed a boat I took him for a ride in the other neighbor's Bigfoot and he placed his order that day. Personally I think a 200hp is great for that boat. I have a Mowdy and love it. Deep V w/ pocket tunnel and runs real shallow. You will have to wait longer for a Mowdy then a Bigfoot. I have 3 enighbors running Mowdy's.

Some feet are bigger than others...but if properly rigged, it can get up in some skinny stuff. I run a 4 blade "Texas Cup" prop which I think is pretty common...

lol, nice poke about that red/white 21T on the Haynie site FOOL!!!!!

I just don't know about that motor you put on there. lol

my neighbor has a nice little yellow 21T and his runs great.

I've been in several 23 Big's and they are great all-around boats. they are not speed demons (50-54 WOT) (ones that i've been in) but they will run and draft shallow, handle chop really well, turn nicely and actually have some reverse for a tunnel boat.

I was looking at either the 23 Big or the 24 HO, but couldn't pass up the deal I got on the boat I'm in now.

SPECS on a BIGFOOT

Anyone have some specs on this hull? Draft at rest, weight, beam, gunnel height, etc. Didn't see any on the web page. Looks like one heck of a boat.
