    Unhappy HELP W/ My BEE

    Im 28 and just purchased my first bass boat. It is a 96 bumble bee 180 w/ a 150 mariner on it. so far I love the thing it will sure fly but I do have several questions about the floor plan and other features that im honestly just not sure about what they are or what they do. I tried loading pics on here but it just will not let me. neither pics of my boat or the pics of stuff I have questions about so once again please help.

    Ive been fishing out of the 180 pro vee for 15 years great boats for sure!!and they do require driver input my last one was a 96 had a 175 fast strike on it then i put a built merc 200 on it it was a sleeper for sure. Mine and my dads and my buddies we all the deck extensions which is a must on them gives lots of room!! What are you curious about on the floor plan?? What set up is yours now?

    I loved my 180 Pro Vee. I did however run out of room I did grow to hate the lay out. She would scoot however it took a lot of driver input.

    over 64 it starts to chine no biggie mine with 175 faststrike would run 69 all day long with hot 200 had it in the upper 70 before it popped again. Great boat they actually ride and fish really well. Mine had a 10 jackplate and i was running a 25TXP and trophy my budddie ran a 24 fury with a 175proxs it was tickling 70 with the 2 of us. Good looking bee.

    Yea any sheetmetal shop of fab shop should be able to build you one.
    another thing we do on the livewells is flip the lids them around so they open from the front and in the floor in front of the middle seat is vents we turn those into cup holders with a insert you can buy at BPS or make
