    Hey everyone,

    Any input on poling a salt marsh skiff? I'm currently up to three boats, and I've considered consolidating because it's hard to use all three boats (obviously). The only issue in the consolidation is that two of the boats are jon boats that were pretty much given to me, so it's hard to give them up.

    Anyways, if I do consolidate, I may look into a salt marsh because of the jon boat/skiff hybrid they've got going on and I want to see the input on what it's like to push one around.

    Just let me know.

    I have a 1656 and it poles very easily. Tracks well. It is a light stable boat and I have heard similar of the 1444.
