    Just wanted to drop in and update everyone on my boat search. I’m happy to say that I picked up a PRISTINE 93 Hewes Bonefisher w/ a 2013 Etec 90 yesterday.

    Not technically a micro, but I am very pleased with this purchase and could not say no to the price I got on this boat. Expecting a 10” real world draft with 2 anglers for fly fishing and to still be able to fish live bait like I normally would. Can’t wait til spring and for the redfish to start waving their tails at me again!!

    Beautiful boat. That's the right engine for it too. Closest thing currently available to the old Yam 90 2S in terms of power-weight ratio.

    Pssst. Don't have to wait until spring to find tails. Congrats on the new ride. Good versatile choice for our stretch of the coast.

    Deep South, I fish panacea-Apalachicola. I’m located in Tallahassee.

    Thanks everyone, I am very pleased. As soon as this wind lays down a little I will be fishing!

    Zika, your boat looks familiar, do you guide out of Lanark?

    Retired guide and in a different boat. But I do fish Lanark on a fairly regular basis. Shout out next time you see me. I usually have a Rottweiler aboard.

    Awesome, shoot me a pm I’d love to talk fishing with you.

    The boat in your pic looks like one of the tarpon guides that fishes out of Lanark. That’s why I asked
