I Love microskiff.com!
I’m sure many have been in this scenario so I’ll try my best to keep it brief. I have a HPX18 which I really love and would never sell it if it were just up to me. It’s a great jack of all trades, master of none skiff. My wife on the other hand wants us to get a Bay Boat for the more comfortable ride and additional room. I’m hopeful that if we get a Bay Boat we’d stay home less because of weather and spend more time as a family on the water. That being said, I will miss the shallow water stalking of fish with a fly rod that a skiff allows. Also, I’m sure I’ll be doing a lot more babysitting vs fishing with more people on a boat. I’d buy used and funds would come from selling of my skiff (assuming $40k budget). I have three options, let me know what you guys think.
