  3. Skiff Shop - Tom Gordon Review

    I remember similar scenario years ago with Castaway Customs, they have turned their customer service/response time around now. I'd bet the same could be said for the Skiff Shop, probably very busy working through the jobs and the customer service/response/follow through is slipping. I'd be persistent if you really want the boat worked on by them. They have to be busy for a reason. BTW, I cannot speak for their work but have contacted them for a quote which I did receive after about a week of waiting. I am interested to hear your outcome because I was leaning towards using them for a few upgrades I have planned. Keep us posted if you don't mind, even if you don't end up using them!
  4. captains For Clean Water Golf Tournament

    Hey @DaveC by chance do you have the registration form? I have searched the interwebs with no luck on finding info on this event except for what you posted. Thanks

    Is the casting platform the one in your picture? Powder coated black? Thanks

  7. Newbee Help Please 17V Vs 17 S

    The S is slightly longer than the V (+11") and has a softer entry = less V therefore a flatter hull. Its a shallower poling skiff than the V. Both boats have their respective pros and cons. They are similar boats but to the discerning flats fisherman they are noticeable and will sway the decision as to which boat to go with. My opinion is the V will handle choppier conditions well whereas S will get you shallower.
  8. MOT 31 (Islamorada 2017)

    Has anyone trailer their boat down and stayed at Breezy Palms while launching/storing their boat off the property? If so, where? Breezy does not allow boats to be parked/stored on the property if you do not have a slip.

    Just called Breezy this morning, no slips left
  10. Dry boat bag or box for important items??

    I use those Plano dry box boxes for all of my tackle! I guess you could say the tackle is important. Lost way too many hooks due to saltwater hitting them and corroding the entire pack so now I put everything in a dry box. I also have a small Pelican case that is used for my keys, cell, wallet, kept in the console for easy access. Pelican case for the camera. I keep a ditch/boat bag (Patagonia black hole bag)for all the documents, some safety items, rain coat, maps, sunscreen, etc. Most everything is in a box or a bag making it easy to load in or removed from the boat in a matter of minutes for a thorough wash down. I typically don't forget something as much now if I know all the bags/boxes (6 in total) are in the boat!
  11. Older 17 HPX-V with F70 four stroke

    I've rode on the newer HPX 17V's with a 70 four stroke and was pleased with the performance. Its not a rocket ship by any means but it got the job done. If I was to repower my '08, I'd go with the 70 to save on weight specifically. The smell of the stroke and noise alone are big cons in my book. What year is yours? Looking over the Maverick brochures, I could not tell much weight difference between the newer vs older HPX17V's.
  12. 2006 18 Maverick MA w/F150

    Make him an offer that you would be comfortable/happy paying for the boat, hopefully that'll resolve any buyers remorse concerns. Or, wait till that 17' comes along!
