No experience with the Skimmer Skiffs, but I have fished several times on LT25s. It's a cool little craft that floats in spit and offers the ability to really sneak up on fish. A 25-hp two stroke is the ideal power, but it does pretty well with a F25 with the right prop and shifting weight. Narrow beam, so poling requires nimble movement and balance, plus coordination with your fishing partner. Runs all day on a 12-volt trolling motor and economical on gas as well.

The cons: Two anglers max. Storage and mobility is limited. This is also not a long range/open water skiff and it does tend to pound/slap in a chop. Weight distribution again helps somewhat, but the best case scenario is to launch close to where you want to fish in sheltered areas, keep an eye on the weather and realize its limitations.

Good luck with your deliberations and let us know what you end up with.
