Love the paint job and the LED lighting. I do prefer the decks like Keith did on his though for the interior layout. I looked at Gheenoes really hard for a while and spent a lot of time on CustomGheenoe.com and never could decide if I would want that center dry storage/livewell box running lengthwise. It seems like such a great idea for storage and for holding bass but it's a lot of space to give up in such a small craft!!

Jerry,
I got my Solo Skiff a while back. I'll let you know what I think about it when I finally get to put it in the water. I've been in touch with Keastman as well. You all will be the first to hear about it. I picked up a new 5hp as well. I've been swamped with work and getting Jen moved up to DC. It's been hectic to say the least, but hopefully this weekend I'll get it out there.

That looks great. You'll definitely be visible too.

I love my lights!!! I must say though I use the interior red lights much more than I use the exterior UV lights!!
