FAQ

Q: How long will a battery last with a trolling motor?

A:  It is the amount of motor thrust not the amount of time that determines this.  Below is a pretty accurate approximation taken from www.trollingmotors.net.  Remember, this is if you left the motor running at that speed continuously and never turned it off.   So with a 55Lb thrust motor you can get about 20 hours at low speed, 6 hours continuous run time at Medium speed and about 2.5 hours of continuous run time at maximum speed.  There are a lot of variables like battery health involved of course but from my experience it seams pretty accurate.

Picture

Q: I'm a big guy, how will the Ultraskiff handle me?

A:  Here is a video of a 375 pound gentlemen trying out the Ultraskiff for the first time at the 2016 Tampa  Florida Sportsman Expo. He also shared his honest opinion of how stable he felt and what this experience is like for someone of his size. This Demo and review is unpaid and unscripted. 

Q: What does the Ultraskiff draft? What is the Max Capacity?

A: The skiff has about 2300 total Lbs of buoyancy.  I weigh 200 Lbs and the skiff drafts about 3 Inches when I have the boat loaded with a motor, battery, gear and accessories.  The skiff also has 460 Lbs of internal positive flotation which means that if there was a Hull Breach and the internal cavity of the hull filled up with water, then you could still sit in your chair and safely operate the boat back to shore.   Which is why ​even though it is not required of us by the USCG we voluntarily set our recommended max capacity at 460 Lbs.

Q: How much does the Ultraskiff cost?

A: Buy the Ultraskiff for only $1995+tax or call for a price fully equipped with the options you want.

Q: Do we ship product direct to the consumer?

A:  Yes, we sell and drop ship factory direct.   We take orders for our boats direct over the phone or by email.  Send us your postal code through the contact form and we will notify you about any special pricing or if there is a dealer is in your area.

Q: What comes with the boat?

A:  The Ultraskiff comes fully assembled with the Hull, Cleats, Hinges, doors, latches, transom covers and detachable pedestal mount. It also comes with a set of Magnet Mounts.  The boat also comes with a Title (MCO), instruction manual and the SS hardware for attaching a pedestal base to your pedestal mount. ​

Q: Do we have different colors?

A:  We tested every color, grey granite is the best color if you want to keep the re-sale value of the boat after a lot of use. I have been using my first sample since day one and I still use it. It’s the one in the videos. These boats are designed to get beat up, scratched, bloodied and stained.  The white specks hide the scratches and the dark specks hide the stains.  Scratches on polyethylene plastic are always white, so unless you want your plastic boat to look like an old trash can, the grey granite is the right choice.

Q: Can you outfit the boat with manual or powered pole anchor system?

A:  Yes.  A manual Pin or Pole anchor system works great,  all you have to do is push it through the Tow Ring on the Bow of the boat and your good to go. Our Anchor pin slot it allows the pole to slide freely up and down in rough water or as your move around.  I usually keep my anchor Pin laying on the deck across the strap guides, in one of the rod holders attached to my seat or with some PVC holders mounted to any of the molded rod holders.  ​ Power-poles are not recommended because they remain vertical while not deployed are very much in the way if you are fishing.   They also eliminate your ability to roll or slide the boat and it’s better to keep the boat as light as possible for moving around.

Q: Can I install a fish-finder or depth finder on an Ultraskiff 360?

A:  Ram Mounts and Ram Balls are mountable over any of our cleats.  You can also detach the cleats which will leave two machine screw inserts that are about 1 3/8" apart.  If the Fish Finder Screen Mount doesn’t match these holes then I just use one screw and it works fine.  Or you can use a wood plank or make a single PVC unit that has the screen and transducer one one unit.   The sonar/transponder can be attached to any of our bottom utility inserts, magnet mounts, the front tow ring, to your trolling motor, attached to the transom or fed through the drainage channel and center hole of the boat.

Q: Does the boat come with a warranty? How is it manufactured?

A: Yes, the boat comes with a 2 year manufacturer’s limited warranty.  This boat is rotation-ally molded as 1 solid durable piece, no glued or riveted seams.  The attachments and accessories are screwed into 33 brass and stainless steel mold-in inserts.

Q: Do we make or are we planning a 2 seat option?

A:  Although of course possible we do not feel that having 2 seats is a logical idea for several reasons listed below, our opinion is that after considering all the disadvantages you would be better served just buying a small jon boat if you are looking for a 2 person boat.

1.  It is counter-productive to the very purpose of a round boat.  The whole idea is that you are positioned in the center and have an equal 360 vantage point and and equal foot positioning and posture as you turn in your chair.  2 seats defeats this purpose.

2. The “T-cup Effect"   Related to the 360 vantage point as the boat drifts and ambiently turns in the water both seats are rotated making it difficult to stay facing any particular target unless firmly anchored down.

3. Weight imbalance:  If one person weighs more the the other then boat will be tilted towards the heavier occupant, making sitting uncomfortable for both passengers.  This also makes exiting and entering the boat one occupant at a time pretty tricky.

4.  Limited speed:  The one draw back to these non-planning round hulls is that they are not engineered for speed and displace a large amount of water.  Therefore especially if you use a trolling motor keeping the weight to a minimum enable you to attain an acceptable speed and battery life for regular use.  Adding another occupant cuts your speed and battery life essentially in half and is only logical in use on small ponds.

Q: Does the Ultraskiff have a drain if water gets inside the hull?

Yes, we have a one way drain hole on the rounded gunwale that strategically allows water to leave the hull but not enter it.  The Ultraskiff Hull is sealed so water should not ever get into the hull.  Having a drain plug in the rear of the boat is pointless because the boat will never move fast enough to use it on the water, you would just sink your boat.  Also, a rear drain plug would easily get damaged when rolling or sliding the boat and once you alter the integrity of one of the threads your boat would be ruined unless you permanently seal it.   We are against purposely allowing water to collect inside your hull, the next question should explain why.

Q: Does the Ultraskiff have drains in the compartments?

No.  Here is why:  The bottom of the compartments are lower then the waterline so the idea of a compartment that drains out is just a misleading and dishonest lie, if you had a drain that lead water outside of the boat then water would fill them up not drain them out.  If you get rained on you may get a small amount of water to creep inside the compartments but you have to get the water out of the utility pockets and rod holders anyway by standing it upright so there is no point in allowing water to collect inside your boat. It’s just an extra step of work since the water falls out instantly when you stand it up.  You can easily add a one way drain if you want to by drilling a hole but then water would simply go into the interior of the hull.  We leave that up to you to make a decision but you should consider that using a waterlogged hull is not enjoyable, every time you move in your chair and the free-board tilts all the water slides to that side over and over again, its pretty annoying.   Don’t create more problems for yourself, if your one of those guys that like to fish in the rain then just put your phone in your tackle box or a dry box OR use what we call a skiff poncho, a skiff poncho is a round boat cover that has a hole in the middle so you can still fish in the rain and keep EVERYTHING dry, utility pockets, rod holders and all 4 compartments while still allowing you to open the compartments or access the utility pockets.

Q: Do I need a cover for the Ultraskiff?

It depends on how you store your boat.  If I am keeping mine outside I just stand it vertical against a fence or flip it upside down so I have never needed a cover.  If you are leaving your boat flat on a trailer outside and you do not want to flip it upside down then a cover would be useful to keep the Utility Pockets/Cup Holders from becoming a nice mosquito breeding pool. Although a tarp works we actually give us a call because we have actual 72" covers designed for the ultraskiff360

Q: How much does the boat weigh?

A:  The assembled boat hull weighs 123 lbs.

Q: Can you use a foot controlled trolling motor?

A: While you can I do not recommend it compared to a tiller motor.  I have tested the only transom mounted foot controlled trolling motor on the market.  The steering of the Ultraskiff is sensitive in nature and just does not match up with a foot control mainly because you have the put the pedal back to “12:00" each time you want to go straight and unfortunately there is no way to see where 12:00 is with your foot.   I put the pedal in different areas of the boat and found that it is much more convenient to move your hand to adjust the tiller than it is to find a pedal with your foot.  The whole essence of a round boat is that you don’t have to face a certain way to operate the boat.  Controlling with your foot sort of takes all of that away by forcing you to face a certain direction to steer.   Also, you don’t realize that the tiller is only inches away from you at all times until you actually use an Ultraskiff yourself. I would rather move my arm to adjust the steering than have to look down, turn in my chair and be forced to face a certain way to touch the pedal each time I had to move.

Q: How easy is it to move, launch and transport the Ultraskiff 360 by hand?

A:  The Ultraskiff 360 weighs 123 lbs. It has 2 handles for lifting and handling underneath the bow.  My favorite way to move the boat is by rolling it on its side, it takes a little while to master it but when you do you end up rolling it everywhere.  Another good method is sliding the boat on it’s side,  if you have a surface that is not course then you can easily slide the boat around.  It slides well because the only parts that touch the ground are the edge of the roll bar and the edge of the rounded gunwales, so there is minimum resistance.   A common hand truck is another great way to move the boat on land and launch from shorelines and beaches. ​

Q: How easy is it to move, launch and transport the Ultraskiff 360 by vehicle?

A:  The back of any pick-up truck bed is the perfect method.  Even with a short bed you can strap them down horizontally or vertically.  The center hold makes securing them with just one ratchet strap a reality.  For vertical transporting 2 straps are recommended.  For cars there is any small utility or watercraft trailer as well as hitch mounted carriers.

Q: How is the Ultraskiff 360 in rough conditions and passing wake from large boats?

A:  The Ultraskiff 360 can handle wake from passing boats very well. Here is our most recent video demonstrating boat wake trials.

Q: Can I use a gas powered motor?

A:  Yes you can but it is coast-guard rated  for 2.0 hp or lower. I made sure I designed a 17" transom so you can use a short shaft outboard but a gas motor is very jerky and the torque from the gas motor turns/spins at a high rate of speed.  Unfortunately, the craft is just too short and wide to be a planning hull, it navigates like a barge therefore your top speed is limited to about 4 mph.  The only time you can efficiently convert your power into speed is when you have an even waterline from bow to stern.  With a  trolling motor the skiff always moves smooth and at an even water line.    A standard deep cycle battery powered transom mounted trolling motor is the best and safest choice for the Ultraskiff 360 in our opinion. ​

Q: How come you don't see any windy weather in the videos? Can it go through the breakers and rough Bay chop?

 We have windy weather in our videos.  Yes it can go through rough water just fine. Watch the video below.

Q: Do I need a life preserver when using the Ultraskiff 360?

A: You need whatever your state or province and any laws or regulations require.  ​

Q: How does the boat track and steer?

A: Round Boats can be sensitive to steer at first but a little practice goes a long way.  It is actually a great attribute when in tight spaces.  If you look at the bottom of the boat you will see that it is only a round boat on top, the bottom half of the hull has a large pointed prow like other boats.  This prow and the skegs underneath is what gives you tracking.  Here is an old video from 2014 where I demonstrate it’s maneuvering abilities.

Q: Can I paddle an Ultraskiff 360?

A: Round Boats can be sensitive to steer at first but a little practice goes a long way.  It is actually a great attribute when in tight spaces.  If you look at the bottom of the boat you will see that it is only a round boat on top, the bottom half of the hull has a large pointed prow like other boats.  This prow and the skegs underneath is what gives you tracking.  Here is an old video from 2014 where I demonstrate it’s maneuvering abilities.

Q: Can I use one of the storage compartments as a cooler?

A:  Yes, you can fill it with ice and stock it with drinks or fish.  But I strongly recommend using a Cooler Bag if it’s hot out.  These are inexpensive items that will preserve your ice much longer and make clean up afterwards much easier.  Also, there is no automatic drainage inside the compartments, so a cooler bag will allow you to empty the water at will.

Q: Can I use one of the storage compartments as a live well?

A:  Yes, I use them with an aerator, bilge or as a re-circulating live-well.  I have even used bilge-pumps to pump water in and out.  But let me say that there is no easier or more convenient way to keep live bait with you than just using a flow troll, I will usually use 2 of them and tie one on each of the rear cleats so they drag evenly behind the boat.   If you turn one of the compartments into a re-circulating bait well all you need to do is add water and your own aeration and circulation device, running a bubble or aerator pump inside should do the trick. If you want to pump fresh water inside there are long open slots on each side of the compartment doors for this exact reason, this way you can run the hose/s over the side of the boat while keeping the doors closed. These slots also let you run ropes and anchor lines inside the compartments while the doors are closed.

Q: Does the boat come with a Title?

A: Yes, The boat comes with an M.C.O. and an H.I.N #.
