Poor Man's Triple Motor 12 Foot Center Console Bass Boat

I call this boat the Intruder12X3. It's crazy. It's stupid. It's ridiculous. It's just plain fun. This boat is not meant to be practical. Or super fast. Although it jumps on plain very quickly! For me, it is a proof of concept. That I could put three motors on the back of a small boat. I would've put four 2.6 outboards on it, but those little motors don't have reverse. And part of the allure of this build is how I can make this boat spin on a dime by putting one outside motor in forward and the other side motor in reverse. It acts just like my 31ft Chris Craft :^D
I laughed a lot while outfitting this boat. Groaned a lot during the lengthy filming and editing of this video. Spent a ton of money pursuing this asinine en devour. Yet, I would do it again for the laughs! I hope you enjoyed watching as much as I enjoyed making it all happen.
Something tells me this won't be the last time I do something stupid like this. Thanks for the views and for encouraging me to live life to the fullest!

Many thanks also to Pelican for all they have done for me over the years.
And to King Starboard for both making a great product and for believing in me.
And to Todd for providing me with tons of Starboard scraps and screws and tools and for putting up with my hijinks.
Not least, thanks to you to my Patrons, both to my kayak rental business and to those that contribute via Patreon. You really help me live this dream everyday.

  • " Listen to my heart instead of my brain". Seems like a formula for a pretty satisfying and contented life to me. Maybe more of us should do that more often. Great Job mate, may not be practical but I'd sure love a boat just like that and I'll bet hundreds of others that have watched this are thinking the same thing.

  • Not sure but couldn't you go up in prop pitch now that you have 3x the power pushing the boat? It may be a hull speed limitation at a certain point considering its not designed for high speed but sometimes you get lucky and get some decent speed. Worth a try for sure. Fun vid for sure 😁

  • No life jacket ? A bad example!

  • You have the steering and seat weight to much to the front, your pushing the water you need the weight to the rear to get up on the water! Move that console ,seat ,back and you’ll get better results trust me!

  • I remember when you first started with a kayak and a dream. Now i think you have more money than sense. Just put a 15 on it and it will go faster without 3 times the lower leg drag and without making Swiss cheese out of a nice, new boat. Steel bolts and nails. A myriad of wires hanging out of it taking up space, hanging off old bits of unprotected 4x2. It looks like crap and you look like a rag and bone man. You'll have to give this one away because no thinking person would buy it. You turned that beautifull little boat into an unresurectable abomination.
