Hey all, I recently picked up a Key West 1500 Explorer (side console). The side console is screwed to the deck and independent of the rest of the boat, not molded in. What issues would I run in to if I moved it to the center position??
I know I will need to address cable length with...

After quite a while of looking to find a skiff for the lower keys I settled on a Lagoon Skiffs Tail Chaser. Will be a center console with 20hp tohatsu. Just went in the mold a few days ago. Will update along the build process. Should be done in about 6-7 weeks. Hull color will be aqua mist and...
I am getting a Lagoon Skiffs Tail Chaster (14’10”) and was wondering what the ideal push pole for that boat would be. I have never poled before. Thanks for any help. And it will be mostly on the flats of the lower Florida keys.
ps. Tips on poling is also appreciated.
Hello, I am looking at a 1997 Silver King 16’3 with a 115 hp engine. Just wondering: how fast will it go with that, how shallow do those boats get when poling, and overall are they a good skiff for the key west area. Thanks!

I’m looking at a Gheenoe lt25 center console as a starter skiff. Please tell me about them (ride stability etc) and are they worth getting. I’m pretty sold on them after seeing pictures and videos? Mostly want to know how the ride is in some chop and if it is a good Lower Keys boat. Thanks!

I'm heading down to the keys the first weekend of December and I'm debating if I should bring my boat (Beavertail Strike) We may stay anywhere from Islamorada down to Key West. I've launched at Sugarloaf before but that was in the Summer months so I'm not sure what to expect this time of year...
