hi guys,

I’ve been lookin at boats for a while, finally settled on a skimmer skiff 16 as I wanted a skiff for bass, inshore reds, snook, and trout, some inshore snapper, and really nice summer days running the beach. The skimmer skiff for the bill wasn’t super expensive and had two live wells so I can keep my pinfish and shrimp separate.

Some pics of the powder coated poling platform and the trim tabs, fish finder and gps transducers as well as my live well drains. This boat for the most part won’t be piled, but the poling platform is nice for holding my flat lines or when trolling.

Ha, I hear you man, but I'm loyal to my school. I'm alumni after all.

Yes Sir I am doing a tiller, I have a 30hp etec from a previous boat that I'm going to use to get me by for a while. I plan later on getting a 60 hp etec tiller?

I did the same thing with a new boat that I picked up used a motor off another boat. What kind of trailer you getting? I would do a dry launch one the one I got is my first and what a cool feature not dunking the hubs and being able to launch. It's really coming along now want be long from the looks of it.

Mr Bobby said I can pick it up either Friday or Saturday of this week, so I’m super stoaked about that. It’s an all aluminum trailer like float on, with a swing tongue and guides on the trailer. I think the brand is continental. I’m gettin excited to say the least, only bummer is I won’t be able to register it till Monday....
