Default New Majek Illusion! Shallowest draft boat on the market!

Heres a pic of my buddy's new 2011 Majek Illusion. This boat floats in less than 2 " of water. Unreal!

Now that's skinny water for sure. Really nice looking boat!

If I tried to stand like that, the boat would slide out from under me and I would drowned in that 2" of water after hitting my head on something else hard.

lol, Paul. The reason it didnt slide out is beacause its actually sitting on a mudflat. This was taken in Jacksonville, FL. Yesterday. Prefishing for the HT series they ran up on a mudflat. Stuck like chuck!

I was giving somebody more credit than they deserved. Looked like a very good PhotoShop job.

Agreed and it looks like the water is down about 2ft. How long did he have to wait for the tide to come back in?

Is this a who floats the shallower competition? I want in!

Outcast- I knew a few boats were going to get stuck this week. Better today than tomorrow, Friday or Saturday. 3ft tides are no joke! Lucky its not the winter where its 6-8 ft tides.

So it will run shallow but I bet it will beat the tar out of you getting to the shallows.

Did he break the motor skeg off when he hit the mud flat? Do not see one on the motor.
