Whenever I see a post about someone converting an aluminum hull to a flats boat it seems to be a jon boat conversion. The knocks on it are always the same wave slap, noise, sails in the wind, and it has to be poled in reverse. I'm looking at aluminum semi vees and there are some low profile semi vee hulls out there. Some of the lunds and older smoker craft hulls. So that would eliminate some of the sailing in the wind. I speculate that the wave slap is from waves catching under the bow of a jon boat so I'm guessing that most of that would be eliminated with the bow configuration of a semi vee. It seems that if I could keep the bow in contact with the water that poling it would be ok. Where I live a draft of 6" to 8" is more than enough for fly rodding carp and fine for the salt water flats up here on the south shore of long island. And Sound can be dampened. It won't be a Hells Bay, but all I'm looking for is a usable, functioning platform that won't kill my fishing. Any thoughts or experiences with Semi Vee Aluminum Hulls for this type of application?
