Any boat can be converted for a few hundred dollars to shoot at night. The biggest expense you may acquire would be a small portable bowfishing generator. You don't need eight bowfishlights to get started. I personally started off with the less expensive halogen lights and only had four of them. Then with time and exposure to this fun bowfishing activity I moved up to the ever so popular high pressure sodium lights to improve all of our shooters night vision while hunting down the fish.
