I would think that boat with a Yamaha 450XTR would be awesome. Someone needs to develop a 48v bowmount with an 84í shaft and 150lb of thrust...

It should be an incredible boat for fishing the Great Lakes and some of the big inland lakes.

I canít wait to see one and get some real world reports on what it can do.

That's Warrior's fault.

I'm a fan, trust me. But they blew that video. If people are talking about how poorly the video was instead of what you're "teasing"...you blew it.

A boat of this size just emphasizes the concept that you need more than one boat.

Given the advances in material science (specifically recycled plastic composites that are far stronger and more rot-resistant than the plywood shown in their gunnel shelf) Anonymouse sees NOTHING new or revolutionary about this new Warrior model.
It still has low freeboard, which won't help anyone in big waves and the whole "hand-built" schtik is antiquated in our current age of computerized fit&finish & quality control.

Longer isn't necessarily better in that waves on the Great Lakes have a maximum 7:1 ratio (wavelength to wave height) before they break.
The longest wave ever recorded on the Lake Superior was 11 seconds (about 440' in length moving at about 40'/sec.) & the tallest wave ever recorded on any of the Great Lakes was 29'.
(Theoretically the Edmund Fitzgerald should NEVER have gone down on Lake Superior.)

From those numbers one can see it would be exceedingly difficult to ride from wave top to wave top in a dinky 24' craft.
Thus, there is an increasingly large danger in thinking a couple of extra feet is going to allow you to better weather big water in a decent blow.
More likely you'll be nose down about the time the top of the next wave crashes down into the trough you're in - and completely swamps your 24' low-freeboard pedestal seat style boat.

Higher capacity is the ONLY possible reason to add a couple of feet of length & anyone who's endured 4 (or more) fishermen in the same boat knows THAT is rarely much fun either.

No comment on the rest of the rant, we all have our thoughts, but just to clear things up, that's the boat in the mold process, that plywood you see is not part of the final product.
