Hey y'all,
I am currently in the process of trying to sell my 13' Gheenoe for a larger craft that is more comfortable for my wife to ride in so she'll actually look forward to taking the boat out.

I live in Charleston and primarily fly fish flats FWIW.

I have been looking at the Skimmer Skiff 16 6 as a possible option as it is one of the more budget friendly poling skiff options I have found. I am a big Gheenoe fan and could also be interested in the LT25. Can anyone speak to both of these boats and give some pros/cons?

Ideally, I think I would like the SS with a center console using a cooler as a jump seat. With the Gheenoe, I would probably go tiller with a grab bar the cooler fits inside of.

Besides the roughly $8-13k difference in price depending on set up, would it be a mistake to go Gheenoe? Does anybody know of any other boat makers like Skimmer in the same price range?

Any advice would be appreciated.

Thank you,
