    Hi Ya'll,

    Some of you may know me from other forums, but I've just come across this site. I seen Jan's (Imac) ugly mug on the Florida Fishing Report the other night, and seen Dave Sutton mention this place.

    For the record, I've pretty much known Jan since I moved down here to FL 6 years ago. Although he's never told me about this site....some friend, huh?  :p

    Also for the record, I own an '00 17' Maverick MA, a 15ft aluminum skiff w/ 30hp Rude, and an '84 22ft Starcraft CC w/ a 150hp Merc. None considered a microskiff, but with my large rump, I don't think anything would be considered a microskiff once I get on it. ;D

    I hate internet drinks, but just to keep with tradition, beers are on me (or your preffered drink)  :)

    Welcome to the forum.
    I'd approve the beer can with the 30hp as a microskiff.
    However I expect to see modifications and pics.

    It's a semi-v, so with my rear end on it, it actually drafts more than my Maverick. Especially since I have rigged it up with 2 group 31 batteries, nav lights, livewell pump w/ high speed pickup (for modded ice chest/livewell), power inverter hookup for nighttime underwater lights, and a few other things. It's all ghetto rigged though, so no pics...LOL.

    "It's all ghetto rigged" ??? - No matter. If it works, it's safe for all who use it, and it didn't cost an arm and a second child, so what. The motto here is "Do More With Less". And I'll have a Stoli on the rocks, with lime, thank you.

    good to have you aboard.  :cool:

    That MA 17 has been a reference model for flats skiffs for as long as I can remember. It don't go supper skinny like some of the newer mini skiffs, but if you had a mind to you can run Flamingo to Everglades city on the outside in any kind of weather you can stand to fish in. Might beat you up a bit in bad weather but you'll get there.  :cool:

    If you like hanging around here just post some old photo's of the tin skiff now and then and fish mostly with the MA.  :)
