    Just seen it on Islamarines Fb page. Looks clean. I'm giving it 24hrs. Wish I had more info. I'll post pics tomorrow morning but I know there's a lot of people out there that are just like I was. "Well look at it when we pull up to buy it"

    I talked to the guy last year about buying it, he had it listed on tribe n water and decided not to sell it. Guess he finally changed his mind.

    This should be interesting to watch. I love the setup of this skiff. With no floor and a side console it should float super skinny although the tunnel is not for everyone.

    Thanks guys, def stoked about this new ride. For anybody looking at these skiffs, here is some information. After Bill agreed to sell me this boat, he is still getting calls and offers for more than asking price, you gotta be quick, when one comes available. Especially the older ones like this that were build by Chittum, Gordan and Bryan Floyd. It helps to call Hellsbay, Islamarine, Glasser and others and let them know your looking. They have the inside scoop on a lot of the sales. Hope it helps you like it did me!!

    Are the two switches on the right your tabs? If so let me know how you like it. I just did mine like that because of throttle location. I think it looks really clean.

    Congratulations!

    I have a 2002 17.8T and absolutely am in love with it. The tunnel lets me run in incredibly shallow water and I have seen no evidence of any detrimental performance polling or floating. I can get in water too shallow for most fish. I highly recommend reading chris morejohn's blog - it goes into great detail on the design of the 17.8 and the tunnel specs, including the minimal effect on flotation etc.
