    Welcome to a newest addition to East Cape Skiff Family! The East Cape Glide ” Microskiff" skiff combined from old school "East Cape Gladesmen" and a Big Brother East Cape Vantage into a Glide Hull!  This Glide measures 17ft long and 58 inches wide, Max rated is 30hp and in side/Tiller style. Not to mention a raw storage and 100% DRY storage as the gutters are DEEP.

    The Glide has a awesome rear deck with your options as a cooler or live well with Dry Storage next to it!  Front raised deck with dry deep hatch and this skiff has a huge vantage spray rails to stay completely dry!  Also a good thing is it holds 3  10ft Flyrods on each side of the skiff and fully loaded with 2 guys at 5.25" draft. 

    This pictures is a Side console Glide with 30hp Evinrude E-Tec with Tilt and Trim tops out over 30 MPH with 2 guys.

    I love the look of this skiff and cannot wait for a tan tiller Glide with 20hp Suzuki 4 stroke with blacked out package, new style poling platform and trim tabs.  Hopefully Soon I will take her out and pole it on the skinny water goon!

    Kevin said he was making a tiller. Is that yours? I was thinking about a tiller this morning for myself with a new Suzuki 20 EFI.

    Looks nice! From the pics and listed specs, seems like it compares more to their Caimen? I saw they have removed the Gladesmen from the website...

    The side console glide with 30hp etec and Tan Glide with 20hp Suzuki are going to be a demo skiffs for now. My plans for the Glide hasn't been set yet. ECC crew going to finish build their demo skiffs first before starts in production.

    Kelvar Glide set up with 20hp Suzuki with micro powerpole and mini hydraulic jackplate sounds good to me!

    I'm sure Kevin will chime in on where he sees this fitting into the line up but seems to me that it is their hope that it will fit into the Gladesman slot. A bit more boat then the gman but not quite a caimen. The shorter length would seem to be a good fit for the guy looking to garage his boat.
