    625 is dry hull weight. A rigged boat will be 1100 to 1300.

    Thanks Kevin, we just measured and the boat is probably going to be too long with the motor trimmed up. The bow will sit right on top of the pulpit so we are going to need something 15-16 ft

    Pair A Dice I hate to recommend a different brand but have you thought of a Carbon Kevlar Egret, I sold mine a few years ago and it now sits as a tender on a yacht.

    if the yellowfin is a little large, the hells bay skiff has been a great shallow water boat for us in the bahamas. i dont have much experience with mavericks, but jack nicklaus was in town 2 months ago with his new 112'. he has 2 HB skiffs and a maverick as tenders, and the maverick never got wet.

    Mikey that is probably because he did not want to get wet!

    pretty impressive having 3 flats tenders on 1 boat. You cant get anyone at Hells Bay to call you back, must be too busy.
