    Hi! I'm Chris. Nice to meet you. I've been reading your posts, and was hoping to get some advice after some long, somewhat incoherent rambling... At the beginning of the year, my wife and I moved down to Virginia Beach, and as someone who has traveled to flats and keys from Charleston down...

    Probably a newbie question here, but can most all transom's hold the weight of a 200 lb guy on a transom mount poling platform. Just seems like a lot of added stress on the transom to me. I have a 1992 scout 141 sport with a 2001 yamaha 40 2-stroke on it that weighs 191 pounds. 40 is its max HP...

    Adding a poling platform onto my skiff and was thinking of using starboard for the actual top. Has anybody ever done this and had success? I am particularly wondering about what thickness I need. There is a big price different between 1/2 inch and 3/4 inch. Would 1/2 inch do it?

    I find myself fishing alone quite a bit and trying to pole my skiff off the stern platform sinks it too much to get a good draft without someone on the bow. I have been poling on the bow, basically backwards till I can spot something then spin it around 180 (if it's wide enough) and try to cast...

    I know a lot of you aren’t fans of these boats, but it’s my first Hells bay, and I came from a Gheenoe 15’4 so I still feel like it’s a step up haha. Anyways I make poling platforms, casting platforms, and grab bars ect. Just wanted to show them off a little haha.
