anyone have input on this skiff seems like a pretty cheap option for local fishing. Looks like it would be ideal for fishing the bay's breakwall and local kelp any input would be great

Thanks Connor

No experience, looked at it lots of times at BPS. I would agree with your opinion; nice layout, smart storage option, fold-away trailer tongue and a good price. Really, really wish I could track down and purchase the console off those boats for my Whaler.

Carolina style skiff style. Very stable bay boats. Flat bottom will pound like a mother in chop.

That hull design is not for the chop, that's for sure. Flat bottom and the wind kicking up in the afternoon could mean a long ride in from the kelp.
