Hello everyone. New to the forum here and I’m looking for a skiff. I first started looking at the Eastcape Gladesmen but they’re hard to find and over my range. Recently, I looked at the Gheenoe LT25 and the Skimmer Skiff 14’6. I live in Miami. I’d like to fish inshore, coastal, mangroves, etc. Wondering if anyone Has experience with them for comparison or advice on something similar?

Skimmer Skiff would be your best bet, larger beam and overall more fishable imo then the Gheenoe. However, you will be trading it in for a larger one in no time.

Thanks. That’s what I was thinking the same. I like the gheenoe but based on current pricing and new competitors, it’s hard for me to pass up the skimmer.

Get a test ride . I was out on Lake Monroe in my 16' Mod-V Alumacraft quite choppy .

I also own a G-noe and would NOT have wanted to be in those conditions in the "noe"

A noe is a fine boat but very limited when conditions crop up . also look at the freeboard and beam in your search .

But the noe IS my go-to choice for small calm rivers ...
