I have seen them before.  Nice skiff---I tried to find them myself to see if anyone was selling...I don't think they are in production any longer and they are hard to find.

They used to be around.....I'd almost forgot about them until I saw the post....
I think they have been out of production for a while....maybe 10+ years...Dave

I owned one w/a Honda 40 Jet on it and w/a 25hp it will be under powered...
It was a good micro but we had to do some work on it after we got it.

I have one. its a great boat and very stable,the hull slaps if there is the slightest ripple but it dosnt seem to spook the fish.
they have two hulls that i know of, one narrows in the back like mine and the other goes straight back like a flats boat and is a foot or so wider and they don't come up for sale often
i check regularly

Check the threads in the Bragging Spot and you'll find some more info.  I also own one; good first little boat.  Mine polls great, is a little noiser than I would like (maybe on par with a Gheenoe) and I like having a small console with a finished liner.  Runs just fine with a 25hp motor.
