    I was thinking the same thing. I guess these bare bones skiffs have a smaller target market. I personally love them.

    I'm out of town but am looking to upgrade my j12 "fish slayer". Would love to get a pair of eyes on it. It is a very realistic price for a 6 yr old boat. PM me if serious about checking it out.

    Seems like a fair price, but I think most would agree the 30hp just isnt enough power.

    And for me, these boats MUST HAVE a ram-lin trailer!

    But if I was keeping it on a lift, the trailer wouldn't matter one bit!

    Galvanized Ramlin is $2,800 new and aluminum is around $4,500 (+/- a couple hundred).

    Is this boat under powered? What kind of speed could you expect out of the 30hp?

    I ran mine with a 50 2 stroke Yam. 32 mph. No liner. The no liner models like this one are rated for a 50

    And yet a 60 etec or 70 yami will get mounted on her.

    I noted that someone listed a Ramlin trailer as a "must have"...

    Y'all buy whatever you want but a high end trailer would be the last item on any of my wishlists with a new or used micro.... For roughly half the price of that high end trailer I buy and run EZ Loader trailers and routinely get more than 300,000 miles on each one that I've owned (and in one case it was nearer to 400,000 miles before it gave up the ghost....). As a guy who routinely tows around 20,000 miles per year and works out of a 26 year old skiff I guess my standards don't include anything "high end".

    WOW ! If you figure only two trailers at 300 and one at 400, Thats 35 yrs of putting the 20K on them !! When do you fish ? Thats a lot of driving w/ a boat behind you .

    Ramlin's are nice but not necessary. They do have a trailer that is built specifically for the caimen which is convenient. There is no setup or adjustment required, it fits like a glove. Continental has a line of nice aluminum trailers at decent prices as well. I'm sure Kevin could chime in on speed with the 30 Honda. I think this is the older no liner version which is lighter. If I was needing a boat this one would already be in my garage unless it is beat to hell and you just can't tell from the photos.

    No way is this light narrow boat under powered with a 30. I am sure it will get in the upper 20s with that motor. Yes it will go faster with a 50 or 60. But will also draft more since it is so narrow. I had a Honda50 on my Lostmen. That's a great motor thats damn near bullet proof, supper light and sips gas. I wouldn't hesitate to buy it.

    It's the no liner Caimen. A 30 will push it just fine
