    Hello, I wasnt on here very long back about a year or so ago, I used to run a Palm Beach whitecap 151. I loved the boat, but had to sell it as I broke my ankle last summer and lost allot of work, got behind on bills, you all know the drill. After spending a year or so in a canoe, I'm finally back in a microskiff!!! Just got a new to me IPB 14 :) so that being said it's good to be back here, and in action again look forward to posting some reports, and other stuff!!

    Yes I fish all over st pete area, but plan to travel a little more than I used to now that I have more time open :cool:

    I think all I want to do with this boat is add an LED strip under the rear deck for night time fishing, a jack plate and something to hold the pushpole while on the platform in case I see a fish and wanna make a presentation
