Our Ambush Light is finished.  Weight is 98lbs.  We will build a few of these while we finish the regular Ambush and see how they do in the marketplace. We took these pictures on my cell phone today.  I will bust out the Canon T3i tomorrow.  Let me know if you guys like the Ambush Light..  Retail is going to be Around $1,490.

Here is the first AMBUSH… Fresh from the molds… Boat 1…  We will be trimming this boat out in the next couple of days and hopefully have it all done by the end of the week.  We intend to hang a 2HP Honda to our custom motor mount, install a set of push pole holders, & install a fly casting deck (mid-ship).  We are encouraging all of you give us your "must haves" on this rig…  If you see something we can add, let us know!

The main differences between this boat and the light are that the regular AMBUSH has the finished hatch up front with a sealed bulkhead, this one gets rub rail, finished deck cap, & it is entirely self-bailing.  After further consideration and building, this boat is going to cost about $2,800 (retail).

Here is the AMBUSH by Pelican Flats Boats.
...
This will be used predominately for NMZ fishing areas.  The thing that makes this unique is the fit and finishes of it.  I haven't see anything in this realm that finishes out quite like this.  This will be made with a non-skid molded deck and fiberglass dry hatch with stainless steel hardware.  It will have a push pole/paddle combination mounted to the boat at the time of purchase.

Yeah, I yur questions right here buddy!  Wink
First, nice work!
Second, Your hull has some very interesting features. I've never seen forward angled grooves on the chine like you have there. What's the reason for that? You also have some negative grooves at the transom too, what's that for?
What's the projected weight for the finished boat?
How many ponies can she handle?
What's the length and width?
Thanks for sharing!

Originally, the grooves were for bling, but they doubled into something amazing.  Take a look at the picture of the bottom of the boat....  The grooves pull the water to the strakes keeping this thing on a "rail" when poling. 

The negative grooves on the transom are our signature, "Pelican Feet." Our flats boats have these to help prevent any sliding on sharp turns...  Although, they don't serve too much of a purpose on this boat, it is important for us to maintain consistency in our designs moving forward.

The boat is not meant for outboard motors, but I am sure they will be rigged with them.  This boat is mainly for poling/pushing/ troll motoring... 

This is predominately a one man boat, however, if you have some motor skills... two people can go slay in this thing, too.

Sanded and ready for gel coat...  We will gel it this afternoon and re-sand it to take out any other imperfections.  Non-skid will be applied and a mold will be made by the weeks end...

Lemme see here... L x W = hull factor

so 13.5 x 3 = 40.5...round up to nearest foot...41

tiller and 15 inch transom hard chine means hull factor x 0.5 then subtract 15 for max hp

so 41 x 0.5 = 20.5 - 15 = 5.5, round up to 6 hp.

3 inch hull draft plus 10 inches from plate to skeg
means you could do about 14 mph in 14" of water with a 6 hp 2 smoke.
Lets see a yakker do that with a paddle...

Okay, almost ready for the non-skid.  I will keep them coming.

...
...
...

We also just finished something we call the Ambush Light.  This is the rougher, less expensive cousin of our Ambush with finished cap and hatch.  We are going to trim the edge tomorrow and apply the trim.  I will update it tomorrow.
