I have run a 17ft Carolina Skiff for over 10 years. It has been good for everything from inshore to river fishing. It still is for that matter, but the problem is I'm getting so that it's to difficult for my old bones to handle. I'm moving from Florida to Georgia so feel like I need to make a fishing style change. No more inshore stuff and no more large deep river adventures. I want to confine myself to small river and creek navigation and maybe some small lake catfishing. Been thinking about a riveted G3 1448 LW powered by my old faithful Yamaha 4hp 2 stroke. Will also put a 50 lb thrust transom mount trolling motor on to be a little more stealthy plus to act as an emergency get home power source. Oars will be a last resort. What do you think? Am I nuts or what?
