I see a few of these for sale in 16' lengths. I am looking at getting a 16' flats boats.
Anybody know about these boats, how they ride, how they float?

I'm also looking at some 16' Sea Fox flats boats.

Anybody that knows either boat please add to this discussion!!

Thanks

Ok here we go
Small skiffs, 16' can be skinny and pole well but youll get wet going over any chop
Go bigger say 18' with dead rise. Wont be that skinny or pole that well but will keep you dry
You cant have everything

You get wet in the 18' boats too
I just was asking about the brands, such as any problems with the hulls...etx.
Thanks

Price is why I'm looking at those Skinnywater Boats. Thye look pretty good, just the front deck is too pointy I think. I might could fish off it though...

It's all going to be based on your budget. Then u can get a better idea of the skiff that will work for you
Plus the name of the boat wont help you catch fish any better.each skiff has a specific job. Figuring out the main use will help alot.
Area you fish in
Amount of anglers
Type of fishing you do
Poling if that's important.
Alot of variables
PM me if you need help
