    Not sure if they still build flats boat, but I believe intrepids use to run over $100,000 for their flats boat.

    It's probably the one that caused some rich guy to get a divorce and lose half of everything. Andy Mills's boat maybe?

    The fact that you can buy a nice fishing 18' flats skiff for $6k or for $60k has always amazed me. I guess we should all be grateful to the people spending $60k because they're keeping the rest of us employed.

    Time for a reality check. ;)

    The truth is, since the value of money is a variable,
    the most expensive flats boat is the one that eats up the most of the buyers net worth.
    So to someone at the subsistence level, an aluminum jon boat with a 5 hp kicker
    is infinitly more expensive than a custom carbon kevlar technical poling skiff,
    with all the bells and whistles, is to a multi-millionaire, for whom the money is pocket change.

    That's what ya' get for bringin' up a topic that has philosophical ties to reality and the secret of life.  ;D

    That tinny will probably get more use, and float shallower, than the custom skiff. :D

    Geez!!!!!!!!!

    Who started all this whining? :'( :'( :'( :'(

    I just wanted to get a ranking just for the hell of it and to see what they cost for my personal edification. I needed a good laugh.


    Get a cold one and relax.

    I have to go get a lottery ticket.

    I was calm until I saw your reply with an image of some kind of animal trying to sell me a chevy truck.
