Re: Fatigue from Aluminum Floor

I don't think it's the deck, it's the movement of the boat, side to side, fore and aft and trying to stand while the boat is in forward motion [read Bow high at an angle]
All of the constant movements will and do give your feet, legs and lower back one hell of a work out.

Re: Newbie looking for Pacific Skiff

Yes you can tow with a 1/2 ton, my 23 is about 5800lbs TOTAL, sitting on a 1900lb steel trailer.
Why you don't see more is the cost of a new boat and those that buy them seem to hang onto them for ever.

Julie just emailed you.

Re: Hello all I'm new my names deva (day-va)

I run a Pacific23 and if you want a very stable fishing plat form this is it, if your want to haul a butt load of weight this is it, if you want to haul butt [read go real fast] get a yellow fin. The Pacific will run faster than your back will want to go due to the dead rise and width of the hull an...
