I run a 3.5, manufacture says up to a 5 hp. It should be noted that the small 4-6hp range motors are all the same, just different carb/tuning. So with that said, some guys run 6'sNCF12 wrote: What h.p. is your outboard? What range of h.p. can be (safely) used on a SoloSkiff?
Heavy chop. But don't exceed your personal limitationsHow much chop (light, moderate, etc.) can this SoloSkiff handle?
I liken it to having a friend on your bike handlebars when you were a kid. It can be done, but isn't really supposed to.Can more than 1 person fish from this SoloSkiff?
Some guys launch these from their truck beds with a bed extender. I do think it would be a little cumbersome to get it on a kayak cart, although there's plenty of room in the hatch to break the cart down once you hit the water.Can you launch from a typical kayak launch or do you need a more conventional boat ramp?
I did. But gheenoes can sink. Don't get me wrong here, you would have to try to sink one, but it can happen. I've sunk skiffs before. Also, I enjoy fishing solo. Its really tomato - tomahto with Gheenoe vs Soloskiff. Pros and cons to both.Before buying this SoloSkiff did you consider a Gheenoe (what I've been considering)? If so, what helped you decide on a SoloSkiff?
Overall the solo skiff is a blast, but as with any boat, a compromise.
