Yes, from 1999-2012 they made the one piece hull. Everything you want to know is here on the forum. In a nutshell the one piece models were much lighter, so more shallow water capable, had no gearbox to worry about like the current models, but require a lot of upgrades to make useful.

If you want to have me convert one with all my upgrades etc.. look for a 2007 model. It had the thicker hull of the later models without the problems with cracking around the pump mount and intake tunnel. Had the plastic flotation tank behind seat that can be converted to storage. Great boat there that can be easily worked on and maintained indefinitely. If you don't want to deal with getting one overhauled, and play in water always a foot or more deep, then the 2.0 manual control model would probably work okay for you. That model is much heavier, but it would be faster, and the cockpit is larger. Still needs some upgrades to be more reliable and user friendly, but those are easy to install yourself as desired.

I'm curious since it's been quite a while since I had my 2006, how much water did the old models need to draft? The 2.0 seems like right around 8 inches. 12 inches is probably a good safe level to recommend for sure. Would be nice to see a pic of the two side by side in the water.

My one piece models draft 4-5" with me in the seat. My 2.0 probably drafts less than others since I've distributed the weight better by moving the fuel to the bow, it still won't go in the same shallow areas my one piece boats will go. But if I'm on plane I would be able to skip over skinnier water than my one piece boats at full throttle. So it's a trade off.
