I Love microskiff.com!
I've been told that these are the "first real flats boats." How true is this?
I picked this one up yesterday. The floors are soft, but for the price, it's perfect! I absolutely LOVE the giant space it has inside! The floor is 6' wide and 18' long, with a nice platform up front. HUGE fishing area!
When putting it in the water to swap trailers, I noted that it only drafted about 3-4" without a motor. Nice! I was wondering if it would take water through the scuppers, but they were out by several inches. Will have to see how it does with a motor.
As for a motor, I'm thinking a Johnson 70 should be a good fit. Light, but strong enough to push it well.
At the dock, some kids wanted to see how it felt to get on a boat, so I let them climb on. Was fun watching them catch crappie! At least I now know the boat raises fish!
If anyone knows the history or any specs on these, please let me know! I'm starting to do some research, and so far I've heard that these are excellent flats boats, and not much else.
