Maybe because it’s stated by the designer that it would be an issue?Not sure why the comments around "not running skinning"?
“Not an issue if you don’t fish the grass.”That is NOT what was written.
All grass.No turtle grass up here.
Tarpon tournaments and dolphin safaris, maybe sprinkle in a parasail here and there.Cool to see something new being tried in the skiff market but I don't see a use case for it in south Florida. Maybe it's a Texas boat?
Especially the reed grass.I don’t think anyone runs in the reed grass. Other than reed grass, no grass up here. No issue.
Even more interesting after it sputters to a stop after running through a sargassum patch.Be interesting to see somebody watch it poling a flat, with no motor on the back, then fire up leaving a shoot a ro
Oh, there will be suckage!The reed grass grows in water way to shallow for that boat. Moreover, as tough as it is, and as hard as it is anchored, no jet would suck it up.
There is nothing wrong with having a discussion, that is what this forum is for BUT douchebags like tailing permit always have to act like fools and post a bunch of hateful garbage. Maybe sit back and let the dudes that are putting in work real time do what they do and see where it goes. I think it’s an interesting and intriguing boat. Flame away, I can handle it.
Done it, there’s no 18 foot skiff that’s going to run that WOT unless the conditions are absolutely perfect.I love this design and everything @Chris Morejohn Think about running from Marathon to the Marquesas in half the time other people in the tournament are doing it. You're the first person on that permit flat. Just cause it's not for everyone doesn't mean this boat sucks. It's a great boat for the person it was built for.
Doesn’t need to run 300hp worth of WOT, only faster than you.
I didn’t know they were still in business, haven’t made a social media post in seven years.I can’t wait to run it, it’s supposed to be here when we shoot video on my new Fly industries
I’m the Lizard King.Who are you? You came on here talking shit like you’ve been here forever.
Because they think it will do 90.I feel like I've missed something obvious but I can't really see why a skiff that will hit 60 is considered a game-changer as a tournament skiff? If you're expecting to leave the Lorelei in a 60mph skiff and "pull away from the competition" you're going to be in for a surprise.
it’s part of running a business. you know, marketing your product?I forgot that social media posting proves you can build boats.
triple the power potential?!The tournament tarpon guys will have their speed feelings hurt with this engine platform. Maybe half the weight of a 300r and more than triple the power potential. Sure it comes at the cost of fuel consumption but at least adding extra fuel can be strategically placed as opposed to hanging more weight on the back. Video for fun......
great post, was curious about that!For comparisons on Outbouard/Sternleg/Jet this article offers some expert opinion with some figures.
