I would be interested in a sneakbox/SOT hybrid that has a transom for possibly mounting an outboar or electric motor. Something that is stable enough to stand and shoot from.

A sneakbox is a low profile duck hunting boat. I was interested in a narrower hybrid for an idea I am working on. Here are a couple of links

the following is close to what I'm looking for:

but I need a little more open space and a high center of gravity.
I love the design, but most of these are way too heavy for my needs. It wouldn't just be for hunting, but fishing the flats, and marshes in my area. I want a flattish bottomed boat for poling accross grass and very skinny water. It needs to be stable enough to stand in, yet fast.

If you get into a SOT Hybrid, it's going to add a bit of weight.

I normally don't let links to other sites get posted. But those don't really have many competing products.

I suppose sitting on the hull wouldn't be too inconvenient, but if you notice, many of these plans have 1/4" ply and lots of framing. I'd love to get something like these that is S&G and fully glassed to make up for the framing. I'm working on a goofy propulsion system that is probably never gonna work, and definitely won't with a boat that heavy.

BTW, sorry about the links. :oops:

Sort of looks like a wooden version of the Merrimack. :)

You're after something low, flat, unobtrusive, shallow, and lightweight?

Yes, and fast and stable. Too much to ask?
