@Backwater - surely you’ve used one of these?

See a couple on eBay and thinking about picking one up but can’t find any info online. Anyone used one of these before?

No nothing about it, only in passing. I think they were a mod of the Scott Bluewater series. I once knew a guy who was a fly fishing journalist who own 1 or more of the older Scott Bluewater series. He was YFT record chasing up in Destin and landed a 100lb+ YFT on one and was commenting that for a 15wt, it still threw like a flyrod where most in that weight class felt like swinging a broom handle and you couldn't cast very far. So most flick their line out behind of the boat and let the prop wash pull the flyline out behind the boat. I don't really consider that a sensible way to fly fish.
