Thanks Elton ,. if I could only figure out how to edit, I would be in great shape, I caught 46 reds that day and with a sony pmb software program recorded everything in high def 1080p, it only allows you 1 minute and 40 seconds of a trim, so everytime I would get into them I would the turn the camera on and off hoping to sight one and catch him and get him in the boat in less than 1 min. 40 seconds, if I knew how to edit i have 4 hours of film yesterday, 71 gigs of film this year,,, just no time to mess with this stuff, as far as boat I dip that boat into the way shallows it only drafts 6' with a shallow bottom and a 115 hp it goes 49mph everything is custom redfishing machine/.
The platform? gator trax can build any exact height whatever there is nothing they can not do everything is custom in this boat , now I will give you a few more ideas on my poling platform way above the motor on back, I made post for a leaning post I slide into it, so people can lean into when sighting off the back.
The front one I anchored done with stainless steel loops. Gator Trax put on one I put the other 2, three total everything on boat is stainless to shine but with hydro turf even with the silicone I put under this platform the platform was sliding now with 3 anchor down criss crossing chains and silicone and turf it doesnt move even when flying thru 2 ft seas, I run this boat hard , I made my seat an engel with a very nice Real Tree custom engel cushion,, then stenciled the Engel 80 qt a duck camo grass weed to match the outside of the boat paint, this boat is one of a kind check out the pics.
Just talk to Kent at Gator Trax, tell him you want a platform like Century Man has on his boat he will take care of you
