well I took my grandson to Lake Jackson Sunday to fly fish for carp and my fat ass boat got stuck on a ankle deep flat. I didn't know to turn at the buoy, who knew. After we pushed in to 8" I jumped on. Then found a shallow point that we tossed corn out on as the carp came in mudded I poled my grandson into position to cast JET SKI came with in PP length. day was over

I’ve been looking at sterns a LONG time, and even consider myself a stern man. But I may need a lesson in what a chine is because my Guide...errr girl is much more like a 72’er. Of course, she is a bit older than that fine specimen. And she does have a tunnel.
dream skiff right there. Wouldn't change a thing.

For those of you who don's know what the outer chine is on a vessel, see below. how wide is your girl from corner to corner across the stern? it would be interesting to compare stern widths of hulls that we as a community think are good poling skiffs.

I had to look at it a minute to figure it out so I’m going to measure on the boat from chine to chine
