    Here are the pics of my new boat:

    1860 F and F with a 150 Mariner

    All their boats are custom made but a friend of mine had this one built, there are quite a few of them running around my town after seeing this one when my buddy bought it!

    I have never seen a boat that comes close to the supports and braces this thing has, I dont even think I could tear it up! I hope not anyway!

    Ben, welcome to the BOC/SOC :cool2:, best catfishing site on the web! Be sure to check out the library, a lot of good info in there.

    Congratulations on the new boat, looks like a dandy catfish rig.

    Man that boat sure does not look like it was rated for a 150? MY 2072 is only rated for a 150.
    But it should scream.

    I agree with Shiloh it better be stout or that 150 is gonna rip the transom apart.

    Yeah it is rated for a 150, you should see the reinforcements on the transom though, it looks like 1/2" diamondplate aluminum! I fish up at Pickwick a good bit so I might see ya around and you can see it first hand! A neighbor of mine has a 2072 F and F that he just bought and is going with a 200 on it, I tried to buy it but I couldn't swing what a new 150 or 200 would run me plus what he priced me the boat for!

    F and F boats are built EXTREMELY well, almost overdone, if there is such a thing. My cousin has an F and F 1660, if you looked at it you'd swear it was an 18'er. The top of the gunwales and the ribs in the bottom of the boat are twice as wide as any other factory jon boat I've seen. I have no doubt Ben's boat is rated for a 150.
