Re: Another first boat question
Your ability to use the boat depends on the conditions on a given day. I have a 17' skiff that I use on the bay fishing south of Tangier Island as well as in Tangier and Pocomoke Sounds and the Big Annemessex River. There are some days that I stay away because I know it will be uncomfortable - or even dangerous. I have been in genuine three footers and not had any worries. On the other hand, there have been days I was on the bigger boat in genuine five footers that would have scared me in the little boat.
