How has it handled in chop? Alot of wind lately has made my gheenoe a no go.Looking to upgrade how have you liked it so far?
Wind has really been blowing and I’ve been a no go as well. Biggest difference from my Gheenoe Classic is how Quiet the south Dade is, also floats a little shallower.

How do you keep that fuel tank from sliding out? ive noticed on these skiffs there’s nothing really stopping everything under that front deck from sliding out when you come up on plane

Couple dabs of silicone on the bottom side of the tank, once dry the rubbery texture keeps it in place. I also keep my cooler behind it. Eventually I’ll get some type of bungees/cargo net secured.

Better than my gheenoe in a chop, but it wasn’t designed to eat up chop. Light weight and flat bottom. It’s great at what it’s meant for: effortless poling and floating in inches.

Thanks, thats what im looking for also but more capable of an unexpected choppy ride home than the gheenoe.Its been a few times too many now of rough very wet rides back. Might call and see about a sea trial still open to one.
