    I don't usually post other peoples ads, but this looks like a cool boat. Hull and trailer for $1250

    I really like the looks of that little boat. For some reason i love boats with high bows like that.

    I do too, but the higher the bow the harder it is to place the trolling motor.

    I've never seen them use a boat this small for mullet, but I have seen this style in 20-24' used here too.

    what is the purpose of the swoopy bow? I assume it works better for something but it looks like it would be annoying to use as a casting deck.

    It helps with cutting through wakes and waves. It adds a bit of reserve buoyancy so it is harder to stuff the bow. My last skiff had a bit of a raised nose, and honestly I miss it from time to time.

    I like this boat too.... Any ideal what the max rating would be? I've got a 30 hp Johnson looking for a home

    Not real sure, but I bet it would fly with a 30hp on it. It looks like it was rebuilt right so I'm sure it could hold the 30hp, but that would probably be the upper end of it's limits.
