I have a 24ft SeaArk and a friend told me i should turn it into a bowfishing boat. I have always bass fished, but he said bowfishing is like heroin compared to rod and reel fishing. Is my boat to big? Most bowfishing boats I have seen are under 20ft... Also what would a good archery deck set up cost me? Sorry to ask such simple questions, but I am a complete rookie right now.

Put up a picture....

Go bowfishing and take notes on how their rig is setup. Ask them what they would change or do differently if they were starting with a rig like yours.

Find a good aluminum fab shop. Find some pics on the web of what interests you and the aluminum shop can give you some idea of pricing.

I am very prudent with my money, but not cheap. After much research, I used 4000 lumen 120VDC, cool light (tried warm on Lake Travis, cool penetrate much deepr, at least when the water is clear. LED flood lights, off the net, $39.00 each plus shipping ($200 at Bass Pro for 12VDC). PVC conduit and fittings, T's and LB's, LR's tie wrapped to stiles on my Boatright (minimal$$$). Honda 2000 watt generator (overkill, but just $200 less than the 800W version) runs all night and keeps my 2 trolling batteries charged. Gen whgs 49#. My 2 trolling motor batts are North of 60#. And it will keep running.................................................................................................................

What's needed, how to aim, how to find good bowfishing spots, how to set up your bowfishing boat / deck, etc. Very well written.
