    Can anyone find any information about this boat? It's a BayKat out of missouri. I have been trying to get it for years and finaly bought it. It's all welded aluminum self bailing, Center console, Front engine (outboard) with a hundred gal built in fuel tank, Open transom, And is suppose to be a shallow draft. Several years ago I found an artical on it but I don't find it any more. I know the builder went out of business in 1990 and started in 1985. I'd just like to know the spec's on it. And any other info about it. Thank you ahead KIMG0325.jpg KIMG0325.jpg

    That is an interesting boat, is it a tunnel hull?
    How about some pics of the motor location and the bottom?

    It's going to take a lot of work. First you need to get rid of the tree growing in the middle of the boat.

    Looks to be in pretty good shape to me, and guaranteed not rotten, as it’s all aluminum.
    I’d keep the tree, it looks like a handy place to lean your rod or hang your cap.
    100 gallons of fuel sounds like wretched excess on a small rig like that, and would add a lot of weight.
