The last 2 numbers on the Hull ID Plate tell you what year the boat was made.
All Bass Hunter boats are solid, one piece construction using Roto Molding Technology. We do not (nor will we ever) take a top and bottom half of a boat and rivet or glue it together like the cheaper models on the market. One piece construction is superior in design and strength. The old saying “You get what you pay for” applies, especially in boats.
Bass Hunter uses foam technology that coats the inside of the boat. Inferior boats place blocks of Styrofoam in them before they connect the two halves together.
Bass Hunter boat come with a removable drain plug.
3/4”. We sell replacement plugs or you can find sources online.
Horsepower ratings are listed in the bulleted points of each boat model.
Each new boat comes with a MSO. This is like the title to an automobile. Unfortunately, we cannot just issue MSO’s to just anyone. You might check with your State to see what the process is for a lost Title.
Use common boating sense and safe boating practices. Always wear a Coast Guard Approved personal flotation device.
Yes. However, you may need the Transom Extension kit.
Each State has their own process. Check online. You will need the Manufacturers Statement of Origin (MSO) and the Bill of Sale. If you do not have to register the boat with your State....be sure to keep the MSO in a safe place should you ever decide to sell the boat or move to a State that requires registration.
A quality spray on adhesive will adhere registration numbers to the boat.
Older Boats: Older Bass Hunter models were two-piece boats made from ABS. Best repair option is to locate an ABS Plastic repair kit on the Internet.
Newer Boats: Newer Bass Hunter models are one-piece, medium density polyethylene. There are numerous examples on
YouTube on how to repair polyethylene. We have heard of Customers using the following products: JB Weld (Marine), Flex Seal, Leech Products F26 adhesive. We have also come across a new product call Gator Patch made by Gator Guards (www.gator-guards.com)
Whatever method you use surface preparation is a must. Lightly sanding and removing dirt/grease/oil with rubbing alcohol or degreaser.
Seat height adjustment is 5-inches.
Yes. The boats ship via Commercial Freight (Common Carrier). Someone will have to inspect the unit for any type of shipping damage and then sign accepting it. Commercial Freight is a delivery service, not a moving company. The Receiving Party is responsible for getting it off the truck. The simplest way is to slid it off the back. The Drivers are usually good about lending a hand. If you are physically unable you should request a lift gate service, which will lower the unit to the ground. The Freight Companies do charge a fee for this service. Discuss this with your Sales Person while placing the order. ONCE YOU SIGN THE PAPER WORK ACCEPTING THE BOAT, IT BECOMES YOUR PROPERTY.
The Freight Carriers do a good job moving product all over the USA for us. Occasionally things happen out of our control. If the unit arrives and shipping damage is suspected. Remove the item from the box and inspect closely. The shipping boxes take abuse and can sometimes look pretty rough when they arrive ... but the boat is fine inside. If the boat is truly damaged, tell the Driver you are refusing it because of damage. The Freight Company will return to us and upon receipt and inspection, we will ship a replacement unit. ONCE YOU SIGN THE PAPER WORK ACCEPTING THE BOAT, IT BECOMES YOUR PROPERTY.
All Bass Hunters will fit between the wheel wells of a full-sized pickup truck. To aid in transporting your Bass Hunter see the Handling Dolly on our accessories page.
55 lbs of thrust is good for most applications.
No. The molding process does not allow it like the inferior two piece boats. We will not trade strength and durability for wiring. The quickest (and easiest) method would be to run the wire under a floor mat. See our accessories page. You do have access to the inside of the boat through the storage bags ... with some time, patience, and careful thinking, you could add a trolling motor plug. Just like in construction ... think twice, cut once applies.
EVERY boat on the market can get water in it. What you do as the owner can greatly impact the life and longevity of your boat. We suggest pulling the drain plug when not using and/or flipping the boat over with bottom facing up. We also sell a cover to help keep the elements off. See the accessories page.
Bass Hunters have two removable storage bags. You can access the inside of the boat by removing the storage bag. If you get some water in the boat stand it on its side and let drain. You can also pump water out or use a sponge to remove any water.
Please see the Specifications and Capacity for each boat model.
