IncogNegro - From Start to Almost Finished

Incognito Black Boat

Here are pictures from my latest build. From my little head, to an autocad drawing, to some cross-section printouts, to a pile of wood, 10-15 gallons of resin, fiberglass cloth, and some plastic, was born a mean fishing machine. Thanks to Kaylor,my #1 Fiberglass technician(my wife), and TimOub for the help when I needed some extra hands on the big glass days.

I still have a few extras to add like my Gips(gps), Poling Platform(if I can ever decide on a design), and some other odds and ends.

With the tuned 40hp Merc she'll do 35mph with 18 gallons of gas, trolling motor w/ battery, cooler full of fishing tackle, 6 rods and two fisherman(190lb avg.). And drafts around 5" leveled off in Poling position(two peeps). Drafts 2-3" with no one in the boat. bla bla...bla bla Should get close to 40mph after another prop tune up. I've never had it on the GPS nor checked draft stripped down for fly fishing.

The picture of the handle and switches is what my friend calls "Riding Texas Style". I can control the Lenco Trim Tabs, Bob's Jackplate, Merc trim, while holding on with my right hand(like riding a bull) and running the tiller with my left.

The next one I build will probably be out of a production mold. yadi yadi yada.

It was a lot of work but I built a boat that fishes like a $35000 poling skiff for about "Don't ask I don't want to add up the receipts" less than $35,000.

Good things are going to happen when the first fish out of a new rig is a 7lb trout.

She is definitely a looker Brian... With the poling platform I don't think you could touch her... Even though you might have a lingering cough from all the fiberglass sandings, I think it was well worth it...lol... Forget about christening with a bottle of champagne over the bow, I think a 7 pound Sabine Speck is much better... She's a Daisy Little...Nate

I had the opportunity to see this boat up close and personal when i was out in Nederland picking up a Stake-Out Stik (which works better than advertised) from Brian, and it is a pretty sweet ride. if you ever start poppin' them out of a mold, i just may have to get one, especially if you put a small tunnel it. Sweet post, sweet rig, keep it up and keep us posted on when these can be purchased.

I, as a layman, probably don't understand the amount of planning , layout work , special woodworking and fiberglass skills involved in building this rig . BUT, as an ex carpenter / operator / rancher / contractor / etc. - I am very impressed with your workmanship . Kudos to you on a fantastic project - that thing has got to catch fish ! LOL . GC.

bslittle79,

Your are an artist. Love the style and layout of the boat. planning for trim tabs, jackplate, controls was perfect for a tiller control.
I grew up running plywood skiffs, but yours is a masterpiece.

Brian, you are one talented guy. We hope you remember us when you are famous.
Sow, you remember the first time I met you at the Tackle Swap? You said you had a friend from up north named Earl? One day we need to fly up and visit with him.

Very Nice! Simple, Functional, my kind of Boat. Looks like you skinned with AquaTech Mahogany plywood. That's what I used on the Scooter.

Kudos, DJ
