I couldnt agree more, great post Owen!

I love my HB for its conveniences, but it isnt what catches the fish. It certainly makes it more comfortable, but it has never told me where to fish.

I think this boat looks a lot different from the Marquesa. I wanst a big fan of the marquesa as it is just to big to pole and the ride wasnt that much different from the smaller models.

As far as getting wet from sponsons, I have gotten just as wet on a whipray without sponsons.

I think that boat is sitting so low because it has a huge four stroke motor. Needs a 2 stroke.

The Yamaha 90 weight is about 50 lbs more than comparable DFI 2 strokes. Carb 2 strokes are gone, boats should be designed for new motors.

You are correct, I only commented on this skiff because of my desire to get a new skiff, fuel economy is very important and a four stoke should help.

I asked the same thing when the chittums was down here, looks great but what about the extra pounds of the 4 stroke, why design a skiff around a motor that we cant buy soon, than was showed the 60lb. sand bag at the stern as well as one in the bow.

Running in chop with the engine at different trim I have had my back wet, dont all ways have the luxury of staying on the dock it wont stop me from fishing but it is a inconvenience.

As for talking fishing I get enough of that on the dock, came here to find out about skiffs, glad to find out that other people have the same concerns I have, the cost of a new skiff is a large investment.

Carb 2 strokes, DFI's are about as heavy as 4 strokes.

The e-tecs are much lighter. That will probably be my next motor. From what I hear, everyone who has one is pretty pleased with it.

True, the E-tech is the lightest 4-stroke out right now. But until Yamaha phases out the 2-strokes, you can't beat the weight advantage.

On the 90:

E-tech- 320lbs
Yam 4s-369lbs
Merc Opti-375lbs
Merc 4s- 399lbs

Yam 2s-261lbs
