Thanks, it is a great little skiff. A little radical for a primary skiff though, a 17.8 will let me spend a lot more time in a skinny boat. The funny thing though, I have never had anyone fall off this boat, yet my Silver King gets rid of a couple now and then.

Several other guides do use a Whipray as thier primary boat in Islamorada, but if you have to go to the ocean to tarpon fish it can be limiting. The only other problem and I still expct to have it bit with a 17.8 or any other light skiff for that matter, when you really have to pull on a tarpon, you have to stake out or put the engine in reverse. With a lot of drag, and after a fish is mostly jumped out I like to have clients use as much drag as possible, this skiff just gets pulled along too easily.

We use a small sea anchor in the Glades Skiff and 17.8 for . It helps a lot.
