    I had a 16 for 8 years sold it to my son he lives in Cape Coral, it gets fished a lot. You are correct about fuel economy, my f70 sips the gas I also have the 9 gallon tank never use more than 4 gallons on a trip .I know you will enjoy your new mitzi. Catchem up.

    I love my 2007 Mitzi 17. If it just had more storage in the front.....

    Always loved the Mitzi's. It would be nice if they reworked the top deck with a front hatch and better drain channels to keep the rear hatches dry.

    I absolutely loved the hull and the ride of my Tom Mitzlaf built Mitzi 17. The fit and finish of the cap to the hull perfect but hit its price point. The new ones are supposed to be a lot nicer finish but of course are higher priced.

    That being said I've fished with Leon on several occasions and have been in his Mitzi from the super high flood tides to the negative tides where we've had to get out and push it over bars to get to the fish. I'm sure the new one will be great.

    Can't wait to fish it Capt.

    BTW if your ever looking for an inshore guide in NE Florida who will put you on fish and keep you laughing, give Capt Leon a call.

    Thanks I was wondering if he was still around. He should be proud of what he created. I remember a guide to poling he had on his sight

    Thanks for lunch today Allen. That was fun with everyone at the lunch table. I'm stroking a fat check tomorrow for my Lithium batteries so I'm going to need a drink.
