Lake skiff inquiry

Reply
 
I am looking into buying a boat for fishing and wanted to get opinions about Reno Lake Skiffs. I like the hull but was curious about rough water capabilities as well as their performance in shallow water. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

lake skiff
I have two friends with 20 ft. Reno skiffs they had built in 2009. They draft about a foot or so, so they can get into some skinny water. I've been in the boat with them in some pretty rough Lake Borgne waters, and if you take your time, the boat can take it, but it's not a pleasant ride. Very wet. Also, with the way the bow comes to a vertical point, you have to be careful you don't plow into the crest of a wave with the bow as it will want to throw the boat left or right. Just my experience with them. The nice thing is you can get pretty much any layout you want.
