Review by Capt. Jamie Boyle
After many years of guiding and lots of different boats I learned that one boat doesn’t do everything I want. So I have two a silverhawk 24’ and a Hewes Bonefisher 16’. Having 2 boats gives my customers a wide variety of fishing options.
Fuel: 30 gal
Engine(s): 70 yamaha
Gunnel Height: 6”
MPG @at 4000RPM: No clue can’t read the gauges..all I know is it tops out at 30mph.
Why did you pick this boat? I picked this boat because it’s a cool classic lapstrake skiff and the price was right. I really enjoy fishing the flats and this was the perfect boat to do it from. I needed a skiff that could fish shallow and still handle a some rough water when traveling between spots. It allows me to fish water that’s not accessible by a majority of the boats out there.
Did you make any improvements? No,not really just added a new gps and a little rewiring.
How does the boat ride? Rides like a flats skiff
How does it handle: It’s like driving a go cart.
Gear Storage: lots for a 16’
Fish Storage: one well in the stern.
How many people is comfortable: 1-2 plus m
How is it for casting? Wide open
