I Love microskiff.com!
Yep, most all these little skiff have their quirks while running at speed. Trim tabs usually overcome them though!Jon says these boats dont need tabs but IMO any skiff under 250lbs that goes 25mph needs tabs at that speed or it will porpoise. The Ankona Shadowcast chine walks and porpoises as well at these speeds.
Boat is 48” on the bottom and trailer is 46” between the fenders. Gonna look into wheel spacers and moving fenders out to drop the boat. Just gotta find the time.I’m curious why the boat is set up so high on the trailer. Will the hull not fit inside/between the fenders? If it would, it looks like you could lower the bunks about a foot, and that would make it a lot easier to launch.
Cool boat. Good idea. Ruins the cool boat look while on trailer. Might need a wider axle. I might have not run the smart tabs and had a small hook glassed into hull. Regardless this is a cool small boat.Boat is 48” on the bottom and trailer is 46” between the fenders. Gonna look into wheel spacers and moving fenders out to drop the boat. Just gotta find the time.
Yes! No regrets, I Look forward to every chance I get to run her. I would take a look at the Mercury 15, it’s built by Tohatsu but the adjustable tiller is great. Jonathan has a new demo boat with the Mercury on it.Are you still enjoying this gem? I am almost ready to pull the trigger on one. I think I am going with the basic hull with no hatches, 15 hp Tohatsu and keep it as light as possible.
