Single Vs Dual Console


Guest

Question

I currently have a single console boat. I am going to buy a bigger boat and I am wondering if dual is the way to go? Or will the extra console take up too much space?
I am looking at the 1850 Fish Hawk series.

I mostly fish alone, BUT, when I have friends join me, boy do they look uncomfortable or they are actually laying down on the floor to get out of the wind. Then again, I hear the second console really does not provide too much protection becuase the person actually has to put their head in the knees to avoid any wind and rain....

Thoughts?

I went from dual console bass boats to dual deep-vees to single deep-vees. The single deep-vee is my personal boat and I love it! Awesome room and a nice platform for my electronic gadgets on the console side. Nice thing about the deep-vee is the passenger can spin the seat around backwards to protect themselves from the wind and rain. Can't do that in a bass boat! I only miss the dual console in very cold weather. It would be nice to have a bimini enclosure for those conditions. But in general, the single console is a true fishing machine. See a pic of my modified floorplan at this site.

I have a single and my next boat will be a dual, no doubt. Watching my passengers blowing in the wind doesn't look like fun. I don't like full windshields, but those are nice on big waters. The second console will provide the same amount of protection as the driver's console IMO.

Plus if I am alone fishing in a dual console, the empty spot behind the console is a great place to stick my tackle box and other gear so keep an eye on it on the rough days.

I too have a single console and on those windy rainy days I get some real nasty looks from my passenger (the wife). So a split windshield boat is in the works for next year. I don't really like giving up the room but there are times the extra protection from the elements would be nice.

I've had a few different styles and come to think the best style for me is the dual console but not the full windshield. The full windshield is nice in really bad weather but hot on sunny days. Currently I got a tiller that really doesn't have that much more storage than a well laid out dual console. The extra floor space doesn't justify the long runs in spring and fall when the temps dip. Besides the wife and fishing buddies are alot less crabby when they are comfortable. My next boats will all be dual consoles.

      Now many businessmen open their companies in the USA, as this makes it easy to apply for an American accelerator and communicate with any investor.

      It is strange that the developers did not think of such a nuance. In any case, you need to place an ad on the labor exchange, where you will find employees for the company and they will work with you, only you will need to conduct a preliminary interview

      Creating an application for such a hotel would be the best option. Place your ad on the job exchange on the Internet, I know a few of these, then you can find developers for yourself and the work will go much easier

      You won’t have to search for a long time, rather you will need to choose from the options offered. Look on the Internet for all the available options, such developers usually have their own sites that have all the information you need

      I am sure that if you search in the google search engine you will find a company that is dedicated to that, but to be honest I have not much idea, I never planted the idea of something like that, from my ignorance it is very complicated, but maybe someone who have more notion of it can guide you and can even recommend a company with a good reputation that is dedicated exclusively to it, good luck with all that

      Haven't really targeted geese, think we've got 3 Ross geese a blue goose and one Canada goose. We focus more on ducks, especially when we can get them in the field. Greater and lesser Canada geese around but they are spread out tons of feeds but no large feeds

      Finally got the choirs done. Roofed a shed and built a woodshed. Most done by myself. Now's time to go fishing before the deer season.  Found some crappies tonight, caught 11, missed at least that many. West end. Skunked again, how'd you do, saw you heading out?
