    Looks like a sweet ride. 26 feet is a hell of a big boat. Bet it will be well over 100k
  5. Fall Choko trip

    Navionics is a traditional chart style chip, everything is labeled nicely and is easy to understand but no where near comparable to FMT as far as navigating. Most markers are gone after Irma, don't rely on them being there. To answer your question, I have used app, its dated, imagery is not clear. Here's a link to a discussion regarding your question. After reading you'll find yourself at you local west marine buying a simrad. http://forums.floridasportsman.com/discussion/250554/choko-s-turn-gps-track/p1
  6. Fall Choko trip

    choko pass is way harder to navigate than rabbit key pass in my personal opinion. Rabbit key pass has one turn where if you miss by 2 or 2 1/2 feet on each side your in the sand- s-turn-which scares a lot of people away. Don't rely on following someone unless you talk to them first. Ive seen first hand 80,000-120,000 dollar bay boats beach them selves in choko pass and rabbit key because they don't know where they are going. If your in a bayfisher you can go through choko pass as well as rabbit on a low tide. On an extreme winter negative low is where you might start worrying about running aground. I would do yourself a favor and invest in a Florida Marine Track chip. Glenn, the owner/inventor has personally run all of his tracks he has on his chip and has all bars/oyster beads marked on chip. You need to be running simrad, lowrance, B/G unit and maybe hummingbird for the chip to work. It will totally change the way you fish the 10k. That chip has put a lot of the learning curve that most people have invested in that area right out the window. The value of that chip is priceless and I'm baffled it isn't a standard feature on all shallow water/ bay boats in the florida region.

    Try calling kenny at outdoor resorts. Impeccable facility with 3 pools and hot tubs. People rent their rv's out at reasonable prices. Most of them have included deeded docks which are all part of the deal. Try everglades city hotel as well, recently remodeled pretty nice place only draw back is no pool and you would have to pull your boat out. A lot of people are afraid of running rabbit key pass as well as chokoloskee pass, you definitely need local knowledge or an FMT chip.
  8. i owned probably the nicest hewes on this forum and sold it. Look it up. Was an awesome boat but needed something bigger. Have major respect for mbg product and still do. Hewes started the sport of flats fishing. More people talk about hewes skiffs than any other. if you cant handle good humor go buy a carolina skiff and join that crowd.
  9. all you need is this on the bow to complete that playground look your talking about, https://www.schooloutfitters.com/catalog/product_info/pfam_id/PFAM7856/products_id/PRO19704?sc_cid=Google_SPL-902-774&adtype=pla&kw=&CAWELAID=1238963079&CAGPSPN=pla&CAAGID=13113386417&CATCI=pla-145559018657 westmarine just put these things on sale, would jump on it while you can.
  10. Boat cover price

    Go on carver boat covers. 600 bucks for sunbrella.
  11. What did you do to your boat today?

    i'm a Simrad guy myself and run a evo2 12 inch. Looking on simrads website on the gofree module. I'm confused. Is it wifi meaning you have internet access when fishing off wood key or wifi meaning you only bluetooth your devices to see chart imagery. By the way you are super smart for ram mounting your screen. Keeping your chart at eye level is so important when running in choko. looks like your running updated version of FMT chip.
  12. Yeti at Cost plus shipping

    PM me quote for yeti 50 and hopper 30. Thanks...
  13. 18MA VS 18 EGRET

    Lots of guys going Suzuki.....its the cheap alternative. You a pay a big premium when buying Yami, not just for the outboard itself but all rigging and gauges. Proven reliability. Go to the islands and every boat has a yami.... When comparing cost from egret to pathfinder there is a major difference. Pathfinder is by far the more expensive boat. Frank, the owner of egret has tried to keep pricing close to what the original prices were when he bought the company. In the late 90s early 2000's people laughed when you told them a flats/bay boat was 60-70k now they are paying double that. And yes, its a 200hp. Max h.p for this hull.

    I fish chokoloskee....located in south florida
  15. 18MA VS 18 EGRET

    Had a Egret Moccasin built. Build quality is top notch. Not a mass produced boat where corners are cut.
