I've talked with them a little on facebook. Looks like a cool rig to supplement a bigger boat. Would love to have one for accessing the smaller creeks in my area without worrying about banging it up. Would be a good flounder pounder as well. Those guys are pretty helpful - give them a call.

Looks like a gheenoe or riverhawk. I do love the expanse of color options! Roll Eyesnot!

Here is their post from the commercial section
http://www.microskiff.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1298327938

I wish them well, but to me it's just more of the same ol' same ol'. I'd love to see some more micros on the market, but not anymore gheenoe/riverhawk style ones.

I don't see gheenoe lines at all.
Almost vertical sides, almost flat bottom, no bow curl.
An awful lot like what I attempted to build for my first wood hull.
Very practical layout. Casting cockpit forward to keep clients safe.
Along gunnel storage and bouyancy chambers, minimal raised deck.
At 195 lbs a very lightweight yet strong build in fiberglass.
More like a Robb White sport hull crossed with a crab skiff.
Taller sheer to deal with rougher water.
I'd like to take one back in the marsh and see how shallow she really goes.
I've found a few mosquito creeks that even the Slipper scrapes bottom in... Wink

Yes, I just got one a few months ago, and in fact you can see mine on the toiweeboats.com website under Photo Gallery / Owners - mine if the one with the Honda pictured at South Beach Harbor on Hilton Head. I looked for an inexpensive design for a long time that would fit the parameters of lake, river, and marsh and the RiverMaster 16 if perfect for these uses. I put a Honda 15 on mine and it probably does around 25 mph with that setup. The boat poles quite well, except in a stiff breeze (high sides), and it floats in a few inches of water. It is made out of a fantastic space shuttle like composite and there is no wood on the boat. Fit and finish is excellent. Service and has been great and Todd is doing all of the right things in starting a very quality company. Let me know if you have any specific questions and I will be glad to help in whatever way I can. I would post some pics, but when I do it says they are too high resolution - haven't figurerd around that!

Good looking skiff. Functional and uncluttered setup.
It's how I like a hull to be for ease of use and cleanup.

If you get over Atlanta way, I would be glad to let you see mine. But you can contact Todd Gregory and I am sure that he would be glad to get one to you to check it out!

That looks just like a Scott Canoe Duck Boat made in Canada.  See this:

scottcanoe.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=category&id=51&Itemid=100

Nice skiff nevertheless.
