Hey everyone, I am in the process of building a Skimmer Skiff and I am stuck on the Jackplate.
Is it essential to have on a skimmer 16? If so can I get away with a manual?
Any other intel would be greatly appreciated!
I am looking for a shallow drafting skiff preferably under 16 ft. I want something that poles relatively well. 15k(could maybe go over by a couple thousand) is the budget and new or used is ok. I fish primarily out of Key West and the lower keys so I would like something that can...

Hello everyone. New to the forum here and I’m looking for a skiff. I first started looking at the Eastcape Gladesmen but they’re hard to find and over my range. Recently, I looked at the Gheenoe LT25 and the Skimmer Skiff 14’6. I live in Miami. I’d like to fish inshore, coastal, mangroves, etc...
I have been recently looking at the salt marsh heron 16 and the skimmer skiff 16’6. I really want to hear some feedback from owners an people who have been on both the heron I would have to get with less options most likely due to cost and I believe it drafts more then the skimmer I’m looking to...
been lurking since last summer and figured its time I say hello. I'm in the ft. myers, fl area and have been getting out quite a bit on my new skimmer skiff 16'6 for the last couple months. i've mostly been hitting the PIS/Matlacha areas with a handful of trips to chokoloskee...
Hey guys, finally joined the page. Hoping I can get some insight on some skiffs I have been looking at buying in the near future. I recently sold my solo skiff, needed something to take the misses or the dog along with me.
The skiffs I have had my eye on as of now are the:
Salt Marsh 1656...
2013 IPB (Skimmer Skiff)
2013 Aluminum Continental trailer
30hp 2 stroke Yamaha (3 cylinder)
Lowrance hook 5 gps/ depth finder
12v 46lb thrust motor guide
6 gal removable fuel tank
New LED flush mount navigation lights
New LED trailer lights
New switch panel board
These skiffs seem very similar in size and capabilities. Which one is better in y’alls opinions. I have no clue if I’m posting this in the right place. I just want to hear people’s thoughts on both of these skiffs. I’m looking at getting either a shadowcast 16 or a skimmer skiff 16.
This is my first post, but have followed for a couple years. I am thinking about a new 14 for lower Texas coast. Baffin/Alazan/Laguna Madre
Anyone running this boat over here? Overall Thoughts on boats?
Thanks for the guidance
