    I don't know if my little skiff is considered a "mircoskiff" or not but this is a really nice forum. I just bought a new 14ft Panga and I put a (2003) 30hp Johnson on it and it will fly. On my second trip out the motor threw a bolt under the fly wheel and is in the shop waiting about $600 worth of parts plus labor. The joys of boat ownership.... I am just now getting into the inshore fishing scene. Fishing is always fun to me whether its fishing for Bream or for Kingfish. I look forward to learning and sharing on this forum. I like the tips that are on the site and plan to use some of them or at least put them in my memory bank for later use.

    Welcome aboard! U already qualified as a microskiff of your panga with 30hp motor. I do really love panga skiff and I have fished from the boat with a guide down in the keys. It's really awesome boat! I will get a 22ft professional panga skiff with 115hp when I'm rid of my keylargo. So I can fish in the flats and offshore with coming soon 22ft panga skiff with 115 mercury optimax. Personally, I chose 22ft panga over any flat or bay boats due to roomy, light, smooth ride, shallow running, and stable. It's been a lot of consideration to choose a new boat for 3 to 5 people to fish with, so I'm choosing a PANGA SKIFF.
