A Great Little Saltwater Flats Fishing Boat, Pond Jumper AND… A Great Little Bassboat:

Above: On this “Tricked-Out” version, counting the ten rod holders on the wing, (spoiler), it actually has 23 rod holders. Enough to satisfy any fisherman. Also mounted is a 6hp Johnson outboard motor, a Minn Kota electric trolling motor, a marine radio, various other marine electronics and more.
Capt’n Tom’s Boatworks “Standard Minnie Me” is NOT “Tricked-Out” as in the picture above. It is constructed with polyester resin in a thickness to assure safety and still maintain its lightweight character which is under 700lbs. The sponsons, transom boxes and most dead-space areas of this boat are filled with closed-cell A-B Foam for flotation and buoyancy. Your “Minnie Me” comes with a six month manufacturer’s warranty on defects in materials and/or workmanship. See Warranty Limitations Below. Its width at the widest point, (beam), is 80 inches, (6’8″), and its length is 129 inches, (10’9″). It comes with a smooth white gelcoat finish on the entire boat and black plastic rubrail. A bow eye and two transom eyes are included.
All hatches are secured with exposed stainless steel piano hinge and screws as shown other photos. No holes are cut in hatches. This allows you and/or your customer to customize, (Trick-Out), your “Minnie Me” any way you want it.
Capt’n Tom’s Boatworks “Standard Minnie Me” comes with two captain’s chairs. The rear chair is on a pedestal. Both chairs are on swivel bases. Seat slider racks are optional and additional. Teleflex steering and chrome steering wheel are included. All other chrome, rod holders, grab bars, cleats etc., are not included. As the “Standard Minnie Me” comes without electric or outboard power, there are no throttle or shifter controls or accessories on the helm other than the chrome steering wheel. The “Wing”, (Spoiler) has ten pre-cut holes to accept rod holders. We leave it up to our customer or dealer to select the type and quality of rod holders.
The “Capt’n Tom’s Boatworks” company logo and “Minnie Me” will be on boat as shown in the photo above. “CAPTNTOM.COM” will not.

Color Scheme Selection:
Capt’n Tom’s Boatworks “Standard Minnie Me” can be optionally ordered with:
1. Blue/Grey gelcoat below the rubrail as in photo above – Plus $200.00
At this time we do not have an actual picture to show you. The image above is not real. It is a quick Photoshop creation using the “Replace color” command. This is reasonably close to what a bass green color scheme could look like.
2. Bass Green gelcoat entire boat – Plus $400.00
Above, here I am playing with Photoshop again. This image is not real either but it does come reasonably close to giving you an idea how a bass skin wrap could look.
3. Custom Vinyl UV protected Bass Skin Wrap. Please note that constant exposure to sunlight is going to eventually fade and/or crack or peal. Replacing this Bass Skin Wrap may be required from time to time. Note: Right now Capt’n Tom’s Boatworks is NOT recommending this option until we have had a chance to conduct longevity testing on this. We expect to publish longevity testing results when available. At present, NO WARRANTY is available for “Custom Bass Skin Wrap”. – Plus $600.00 (No Warranty)
Special Manufacturer’s Note To End-User Customer, Warranty Limitations:
“Minnie Me” is designed to be a safe and stable fishing platform and NOT a speedboat. Manufacturer’s liability issues being what they are these days, any use of this boat with an outboard motor rated above 9 horsepower will void any and all warranties, express or implied.
TRAILERING “MINNIE ME”:
“Minnie Me”, while mostly flat-bottomed, does rise a little at the bow and because she is wide at the bow and narrow aft, a customized trailer although not required, can help add support under the bow and make launching and retrieving easier. Capt’n Tom’s Boatworks is currently working at coming up with a custom “Minnie Me” trailer very shortly. When we have something to offer we will notify all our customers and it will appear here on this page.
POWERING “MINNIE ME”:
Capt’n Tom’s Boatworks is currently working to establish dealer connections with various outboard and electric motor manufacturers so we will be able to offer our “Minnie Me” with powering options. When we have something to offer we will notify all our customers and it will appear here on this page.
Here at Capt’n Tom’s Boatworks we would rather provide you with too much information rather than too little. If you are considering a purchase we highly recommend that you spend additional time reading HERE
