I have not measured it but the whole concept of the EVOx is a super shallow boat with a bit more big water capability, so more freeboard than the other boats in the line up. The poling performance in the wind has been really good. (ask me how I know.....):)
I too was concerned about the wind effect on poling given the extra freeboard, but it poles so easy that the wind does not have a noticeable effect.

How much extra is the freeboard compared to a Maverick HPX-S?
I believe it’s quite a bit more freeboard than a Maverick. IMO, the EVOx is a much better boat in chop or beach fishing “on the hook” than a Maverick given the higher freeboard AND still super easy to pole in the skinny.

The hpxs has one of the lowest freeboards of any skiff I can think of. In the filming of silver kings you would often see water coming over the rear deck on Fordyce's boat.

Can I get a lowdown on your overall length/width of your skiff on the trailer? I’m doing the same setup with a garage that appears similar with a hot water heater that’s sketching me out!
