I live in Texas and do mostly shallow water bay fishing. I see some older conquests?, but I like the room, amenities construction of the dauntless but I cant find how skinny it will run. Anyone have insight? How does it handle chop? How dry is it in chop?

I think "Tuna" over at
is running a 22 Dauntless with a 200 Merc.
Might try the NY/NJ board or the Boat board.

need2fish- I believe I remember info like draft on the Whaler factory web site. Take a look at the 22' Dauntless there. David

Thanks for the suggestion about looking on the Whaler site. It says there that the draft is 12 inches but I don't know how draft compares to how shallow you can run while planing or how shallow you can run when you aren't on a plane. Does anyone have experience here?

It depends on how brave you are! Put another way, how often do you want to replace props? I've fished on flats with guides that go places that they can only get to if they run near full throttle. Most of the time they motor to the edge of a flat and then use a push pole.

Seems to me the actual number is almost irrelevant. The conditions on any given flat would be what dictates HP(horse power) vs. HP(human power)
