Nice boat! I spoke with one of the owners at south dade skiffs a few weeks ago about their skiffs. They seem like good people and they know what their doing. I liked their build process overall. These guys even offered to take me out on a test ride. I wanted to buy one but was out of my price range at the time. I'm glad you were able to take advantage and bought this beauty. Congrats !

Got her registered and I’m getting closer to splashing her. The boat ramps in Miami are crazy right now!

Only crazy on the weekends, and late during the week. We launched at 6am out of Crandon with no problems last week. But when we came back to pull out, it was a bit chaotic. Easy for us to get out, but the line to launch was insane.

Love this boat! Might upgrade from my gheenoe.

Where are the rod holders?

How is the motor height without jack plate? How far is the cavitation plate above the bottom of the transom? I see a lot of these with jack plates.

Rod holders will go under the gunnels.
I might add a Bob’s mini Jack Plate, I haven’t decided yet.
See attached picture for cavitation plate/transom.

That’s great! I got mine registered and got the insurance too. It’s at a local shop install the Tohatsu. Waiting on my hull decals to come in. I’m hoping it’ll be ready by next week.

I’ve been watching these guys and have had a few conversations with them also. They are building a dang fine skiff at a price that is tough to beat!
