    Drove all the way to savannah from South Florida to pick this boat up today. HIN on boat does not match the HIN on the title, it was off by ~4 characters. It may have been a clerical error, or the boat may not be legit. I had to walk, after driving 7 hours. Just a warning to anyone interested in this boat.

    That sucks. Too bad you couldn't have called Ankona and ask them to check their records and confirm the HIN.

    Yeah, I learned my lesson on that for sure. Next time I will be confirming that before I travel to see any boat.

    I feel your pain. I drove 5 hours for a skiff a few years ago to find out that the owner couldn't produce a title.

    This is my boat. Seems like you are posting as if I knew the numbers did not match. I emailed rose@ salmarsh and will be going to DNR this week to figure out clerical error. I also drove 2 and a Half hours to meet you. Anyone interested ,this clerical error will be fixed this week

    If not for the HIN the boat would have been in South Florida right now. I had no way of knowing what the deal with the mismatching HIN's was especially since I was dealing completely through craigslist, which made me want to let people know in case it was something sketchy.

    Knowing you're a forum member and seeing your post history makes me feel a hell of a lot better about it being a clerical error. But I'm still out ~$250 and 14 hours over that clerical error.

    Regardless, once you've sorted that out someone is going to get a nice little skiff for the money. Hopefully its a relatively painless process for you, since stuff like that tends to be needlessly complicated.

    Only selling because I have another 14 on order and have a demo lowcountry 16. I have spoken with rose @ salt marsh and the issue will be resolved by weeks end. Sorry about your drive Alex but like I said , I had no way of knowing.

    I noticed the skiff was still on CL; a little smaller than I'd love but I like it and assuming clerical errors are corrected and verified, I'd like to take a look- no driving since I live in Mt. Pleasant.
    Anybody know of a nice, used 20-25HP tiller motor for sale or what I may be able to get one for?

    Rode in this boat several months back.   Member was very accommodating and rushed home after work to fit my schedule as I was only in town for a few hours.  He was not selling it at the time just offered up a test ride.    Cool little boat.  Rides surprisingly well.  I had a 16 built but the ride in this gave me confidence to drive down to Fort Pierce and wet test a 16 and place an order.

    For jon boat money you'll get a great little boat that will ride much quieter and handle some chop without frammin' and bammin' like a jon would.

    Sorry to high jack thread. How does the Lc 16 compare to the saltmarsh 14. I am deciding on a Lc and 16 skiff. Thanks.

    Boat is SOLD. @scredfish. It doesn't compare the the 14 . Two different kind of skiffs. The 14 is a great hunting/ fishing, get super skinny,2 man kind of boat. The lowcountry16 still gets about 7 or 8 " fully loaded w/ a 60 hp. It is dead silent on the pole and poles decently . It planes easily with 4 people for sandbar trips. Both great in there own way. If your local p.m. Me and you can take it for a ride.
    @indoman thanks
