    Default First ever all white Skiff for East Cape

    White Lostmen w/black powder coated accents...
    The skiff was launched from the side of the road on a low tide. East Cape skiffs can go anywhere...
    No ramp fees or crowds!

    Hey, those pictures look really familiar!! Thanks for the ride on the skiff Kev. We'll have to talk more about what I'm going to do. Like I told you, I'll be up in Cedar Key this coming weekend, over in Sebastian two weekends later, and then up in Ozello two weeks after that. Man, I sure could use a Lostman on those trips !!! LOL !!!

    I'm still heavily debating the Yamaha 50hp 2-stroke versus Honda 50hp 4-stroke idea.

    I have no idea on color combination yet either.........on the other hand, I do have the options I want pretty much decided. I'm thinking the offset center console, SeaDek on the poling platform, LED's in the cockpit, 3 rod holder on the side of the console, insulated cooler and livewell, seat cushions, rig for a chartplotter/df, and possibly the Tibor pushpole holder on the platform. Other than that (a decent list already), I think I'll keep it simple. Maybe a pre-rig for a trolling motor, but I only used the trolling motor on my last flats boat twice in almost 8 years.

    Go with the 50 Honda. I was debating the same thing, but I am very glad I went with the Honda. It gives me incredible range, and has a 5yr warranty.

    Take Care,

    Over 600lbs on the gunnel AND on the back sponson!
    The Lostmen is the MOST stable platform for the shallows...
    And has the real draft to boot.

    Brad Mead took these pics while I had a few guys on the skiff.

    Yeah, as much as I like the idea of the lighter, quicker, cheaper Yamaha 2-stroke I'm still leaning towards the Honda 50hp 4-stroke. What color, what color, what color??????? I hate such difiicult decisions!!!
