Reuben Trane Nimble Boats 1997-1999 165 sq. ft. portable portable

Approx. trailering wgt.: 1,500 lbs.

A flyer issued in 1997 by the Florida Bay Boat Company on its then-new Maxi-Peep explains that the forward end of the boat "is identical to the 14' Peep [Hen; see page 51] with a galley, two 6' 3" berths and room for stowage and a porta-potti under the cockpit sole. The center cockpit is 6' 6" long with even wider, more comfortable seats than the 14-footer. Then there is the after cabin (or master stateroom if you will), with sitting headroom, double berth 6' 6" long, and even room for its own porta-potti and stowage of personal gear. Forward of the transom is room for fuel tanks and wet gear." Best features: Like the 14-foot Peep Hen, the Maxi-Peep features very shallow draft with centerboard up, and is easily trailerable (approximate towing weight only 1,500 lbs). She has a deep, comfortable self-bailing cockpit, and has a relatively spacious interior for her size. The boom gallows is a handy feature, as is an optional bimini and cockpit enclosure that zips to the bimini. Worst features: She has a funky look, but we like her despite it—or because of it? Too bad the boat was never produced in any significant numbers.

How To Have A Perfect Boating Experience

How To Have A Perfect Boating Experience

Lets start by identifying what exactly certain boats are. Sometimes the terminology can get lost on beginners, so well look at some of the most common boats and what theyre called. These boats are exactly what the name implies. They are meant to be used for fishing. Most fishing boats are powered by outboard motors, and many also have a trolling motor mounted on the bow. Bass boats can be made of aluminium or fibreglass.
