Fish Hauler runs a 24' Carolina Skiff, so he'd be the man to talk to for sure, and he's in the Waco area.

I have been fishing out of a 19' center console carolina Skiff since 1993. I love it, makes a great catfising boat, they are stable clean up easy, are very simple and customizable and have alot of room.

Only drawback I think really is rough wet ride, but it doesnt bother me.

Cons
Plain Jane.
Limited built in storage
Not a very tough, impacts will damage almost very time
Ride can be wet, driver can minimize this.
Boat rattles itself apart, you must tighten everything once a month b

Thanks for the tips man! Yeah I mostly fish the Brazos, it doesn't get rough really, but I will take it on lakes so I'll keep that in mind, appreciate it!

I realize it isnt the perfect boat, but I have never had to tighten a screw or bolt that I didnt take out, and the boat has been fishing choke canyon, which is as log stump filled as any lake and it is in pretty good shape.
