I'll start it off, even though it wasn't my idea (that credit goes to Fernandina Josh   ;)  )

The rules:
> post at least one pic, preferably more, of your skiff
> post some details, specs, etc of same skiff
> post your general location (especially if not noted in your profile)
> post a shot of your mug if you are so inclined, so we can recognize you at the ramp next time we meet

I'm in Titusville, fish mainly NIRL/Scottsmoor and some Mosquito Lagoon.  The skiff is a home-built, 15'7" skiff w/ a 15hp Evinrude. 

Here's how she sits today, still under construction, but getting closer...

The skiff is a Copperhead, 30hp Nissan Marine.

I'm in Miami, Hialeah to be exact.
One will find my truck in Flamingo or Homestead Bayfront Park.
Find my skiff somewhere on a flat in Florida Bay, or South Biscayne Bay.

Black hull, two tone inside.
matte black poling platform, grab bar, and strongarm tiller.

Ok I'll Play.
Carolina J12 with 25 merc 2 stroke.(with 20 stickers) I fish mostly fresh water. Where? All over.
It's gotta have a name. It's the smallest boat I have ever owned. I've been called that since Jr High School anyway.


Why such a small boat you ask???
Cause it fits in my Toy Hauler.


It's got a Bobs Jack Plate and Smart Tabs. I replaced the shocks with trunbuckles to turn them into "Dumb Tabs" (They were too smart!)


It's got a Stickit, 55LB Trolling motor, and a 48 quart cooler/Livewell. It's not fast, but it jumps up on top!

Custom Gheenoe LT25 center console. Based out of Orlando, FL. Most of the time you will find me out on the Wekiva River near Wekiva Island, St. John's River, Mosquito Lagoon but I can be found anywhere in the state. If there is a restaurant/bar on the water then I will probably be close to that area ;D



During duck season I may be found in this Highsider with a camo 5 HP mudmotor anywhere in central Florida



You can also find me on Lake Sinclair, GA running a white Gheenoe Classic with a 25 Yami and a TSG jack plate but you better be quick cause this is a 30+ MPH microskiff  ;D

Even though she is no more I figured I'd toss up my old homemade boat. She was 15'10" with a beam of 61" and 48.5" at the water line. Powered by a new 20hp yamaha 4-stroke and weighed about 250lbs for the hull. I fished her all around tampa bay.

My name is Aaron and my skiff is a inshore 16.

I live in Largo Florida and you will most likely find me around Weidon Island or Fort Desoto.

specs- fifty two stroke yami, power tech 15p prop and lenco tabs. extras- minnkota bow mount,wang anchor with removable base, loop 21 push pole and some sea deck .   It will float in six inches or less and top out around 35 mph depending on load.

i moved the trim switch from my tiller handle out to the end of my diy extension.

the bottom is pretty flat but with the tabs you can get though a pretty good chop.

i just had the coffin box and grab bar added and plan to add some cushions and rope work. oh, and here is a self portrait shot from the platform last winter.

Not really a micro skiff...sometimes I wish it was a little bit more micro...but it's a great compromise for getting skinny and running open water here in SC. 2000 16' Hewes Bonefisher (the most micro lappy they made).
