Pelican Bass Raider in Saltwater?

Postby CoastalPirate » June 17th, 2011, 7:38 pm

Hey first time poster here, I recently got a pelican bass raider 10 and was wondering if yall had seen anyone fishing with it in saltwater? Im curious because I want to use it at St. Marks and St. George Sound if it is possible. Thanks for the help!

expect any metal that's not Alum. or SS to begin rusting fairly quick. Other than that, the boat should do fine.

I know this thread is a blast from the past but have you been using it in the salt. I’m in nc and am considering one for the marsh. How is it with boat traffic and sometimes fairly big wakes. Thanks

As good as a small Gheenoe.

I'd want a manual bilge pump and keep things light. I have a 9.4 water tender that I use offshore(dinghy) to fish the flats and it does fine. They sell a bass version(sundolphin) that appears exactly the same but a different color.
