Dry Boat Ride

I got to take a spin on a new boat this past saturday. Just like all boat dealers, he too said it will be a dry ride. I used the 18ft Panga and it was a dry ride. We cut through wakes trying to get wet and didn't. This little boat was the smoothest ride I have been on in a long time. One of my friends has a Bay Stealth that has a smooth ride, but you occasionally get some spray, same with a friends Ranger Bay boat.
To top it off it has an 8" draft with out a tunnel or jack plate. I could only imagine how shallow we could get with a jack plate. I wasn't too hip on the Tohatsu 90hp motor but it too did well. The dealer is offering these boats with Yamaha, E-Tec, Suzuki and the Tohatsu.
This 18ft with aluminum trailer and Tohatsu 90hp is $19,500.00 at Coastal Back Water Marine in SantaFe, Tx. 11709 FM 1764. 409-927-1462. He also sells the Mud Buddy, Hyper Drives, Legend Craft and Gator Trax.

Hey Tree,
I was looking at some pictures of the boat your talking about. Do they make them with a tunnel and how much do they weigh? Pretty nice looking rig from the pictures.

My Dad has been running a 40hp Tohatsu on a 15.5' Bay Hawk since '96. He goes anytime the weather is pretty. The engine has been bullet-proof.

My only knock on them is the width, they are pretty narrow.

Tohatsu/Nissan motors are unbeatable..............lightest in their class, fuel efficent, quiet, lots of torque, comes with all controls, gauges, and prop, and all with a price that you cannot beat. And ditto on "BULLET PROOF"............. I'll be buying another !!!

Agree, the panga design is extremely dry for their size. The 26ft panga has been a great ride. A lot of people have negative comments about them until they actually get out for a ride in one. Then the attitude changes...

You can see why they are dry...

The panga hull is everywhere in Mexico and central America. Many times we have been marlin fishing and seen them miles offshore. They are not as well finished as the one pictured but they catch a lot of fish for the locals down there. Normaly see them with fairly light horse power. The sharp entry and narrow beam help cut through the waves very good.
