Nice ride, good price.. GLWS
With a 8gal tank with the Suz 20hp, you must refill only a couple times a year:)

Thanks nativebone. You’re right too, it definitely only sips gas. Love it! Plus I pole it or troll mostly. So that helps too

Not to derail....where did you get that tach and hour meter and how is it connected to the motor?

Hour meter and tach was already installed when I purchased it Shadowcast. So I'm not sure where he bought it. Probably just amazon or something. It's nothing special. The wire from the meter just get wrapped around the spark plug wire about 5 times. There are a few videos on youtube on that.

I put the wooden dowel (used to measure the gas tank) in the PVC pipe. Just didn't like the gas smell or exposed dowel covered in gas in the compartment. The PVC actually worked really well to contain it. Plus it gives me a place to keep the dowel.

Sorry Marsh Pirate...I should clarify that they are not technically bluetooth "speakers". There is a blue tooth unit and AMP that run the speakers. So you have to connect your phone via bluetooth in order to play music.

I've had a few questions on this, so I figured I would answer on here:
1. It handles smaller chop well. Just planes right over it. However, as you can imagine with any smaller boat that sits low, it doesn't like big chop or large wakes very much.

2. (with just me on board) I've poled this boat into just inches of water. Basically stuck. Even if you are stuck "a little" you can just push it out because it's so light. Awesome boat for any type of skinny water fishing in my opinion.

I dig this skiff, however I am not a fan of the black hull. Any idea if its feasible to have it painted without spending a fortune?
