Does it draft as advertised? What is top speed? Is there enough room for 2 people to fish where you aren't crammed. I've heard that the floor flexes while riding. Is that true?I have a 2015 with a 30 hatsu. Great boat floats super skinny, great to pole and quiet. Get great mileage with it as well, but just wish it came with a fuel level gauge. Other thank that, it’s not a bad boat. It handles well in some chop but have to baby it a bit but you will have to do that mostly with skiffs.
Let me know if you have any questions and I’d be happy to answer if I can.
I'm located in Beaufort, SC. I'd love to ride in one before buying.It does draft as advertised and I get around 32 mph. However, I have the stock aluminum prop on mine, which I’m not a fan of, but with a stainless I’m sure it can do better. I baby the boat and usually never run full throttle. The boat fishes two perfectly with enough room. Three is doable but two is perfect. I have seen reports of the floor flexing, but I have never seen or experienced mine flex. I could possibly see some flex in rough rough water but flat water or a slight chop it runs great like a normal flat bottom skiff.
Where are you located?
I'm in beaufort, sc and have never seen one either. It's a long ride for the boat so want to no everything I can beforeTake it for a spin! If it fits your style of fishing and checks off your list of wants/needs, get it. 9k looks to be half the advertised price of a base new one. I never hear much about them, but it looks to be a bigger version of a Gladesmen. I’d honestly love to know your thoughts after you try one because I never see them around Charleston
Thanks for all the info. I currently have hewes redfisher and want something lighter that all draft shallower. I've looked into mitzi and ankona then seen a bossman for saleYeah, you won’t find a lot of information online about them. For my type of fishing, I love everything it does for me. Plenty of space for 2x people fishing, poles great, 12 gal fuel cell. Only negative thing is storage, tacklewebs took care of all of that for me, and I would like a fuel gauge (I will put that in in the future) IMO it’s a great skiff for the weekend warrior or a little more.
