Long time lurker here, first time poster. I am a guide down in Everglades City. Havent had anything that would qualify as a microskiff since I was a teenager. Well we want to change that very soon.This boat will run an occasional charter, but more for me when I am off to fish from. big change from my 24' tower boat. Heres what I would like opnions on, I have a 16' 1985 Dixie Skiff that we had planned on rebuilding into a little skiff for us. New transom, new stringers, new deck then a very simple layout with new power. That was until the Lauderdale show yesterday when I had the opportunity to meet Mel and see his Salt Marsh 16' skiff. This little boat it appears to me would do everything I need, and be an ok platform to take a single customer on occasion as well. Anybody running one and give me a good review? All help greatly appreciated.
