Has anybody fished on one of these very much? How is the ride and shallow floating? Does it have bad porpoising issues?
This. Only been on one twice but was impressed by the ride. Handled very well and took a wave with ease. Seemed very comparable with my action craft 1720. Definitely a flats boat.No, it's a great riding boat. Very dry! No porpoising, especially when it's trimmed out right and also has trim tabs. Leans more towards a true flats boat than a technical poling skiff. Expect to see 8-10" draft realistically, depending on power and weight distribution. I would test drive it if you are seriously looking at one, on a windy day in open bay water to see how she rides.
