    I think you're gonna be limited to a roll cast from that position.

    here is mine 13' Gheenoe with a 6hp Evinrude
    The fisherman now is one who defies society, who rips lips, who drains the pool, who takes no prisoners, who is not to be confused with the sissy with the creel and bamboo rod. Granted, he releases what he catches, but in some cases, he strips the quarry of its perilous soul before tossing it back in the water. What was once a trout – cold, hard, spotted and beautiful – becomes “number seven.”

    Here ya go...Old Warriors.
    I've had the black one for over 15 years. Fishing, hunting, mostly flat water and some moving flat water.
    The green one was given me by and old friend. He was graduating to a boat. (There were lots of other cracks, bigger and smaller. I shot a lot of photos of the repairs. Really boring stuff. Any one interested can PM me.) From some angles, she is quite scarred. The patches were made with "sacrifice" plastic from several sources and in several colors. It came with a trolling motor and a battery.
    I'm looking forward to this spring. I will offer the use of one or both of these fine craft to the other members of my Meet-up on a high dessert big lake trip. We'll see how brave they are.

    Since Eric started this thread I've made a bunch of upgrades to my humble water ride.

    First there were the design and fitting of a pair of custom floatation pods welded to the backend of the hull / transom.



    You can see in that photo how they lift the backend of the boat, it'll drift pretty shallow now, maybe 4" with just me in there. Other gains I've realized with them is that even with that 370 pound Honda on the transom I can get on step from a dead stop in about 1 foot of water in a very short distance. It just jumps up now. Another thing on the long runs to the cabin (150 mile round trip) I get better speed and fuel economy which was an unexpected and welcome bit of discovery. It runs super shallow now too, it's hard to say for sure but I think I can pass through 2 1/2 inches of water without hearing any strikes.

    Here's another angle on the pods, they do wonders.



    This small but effective addition also produced better fuel economy on the long runs as well as a more comfortable ride for me.



    It actually took some careful calculating to determine how tall and what angle and lip would produce the least amount of buffeting for a driver my height when seated. It works wonders except on cold mornings when it fogs up, that's when you just stand up....

    The latest addition were these carbon fiber 10 foot oars with the low water blades.





    Can't forget that I changed my stickers since the thread started

    Here’s mine. A 1988 Ranger 680t that I’ve had since 1989. Just upgraded her with a new engine, new electronics, new pumps, new wheels for the trailer, and all sorts of rewiring and such.

    I also have a fleet of kayaks and float tubes.
