I ordered a 15" prop. I think it will get me a little quicker top speed while maintaining some holeshot. I will be doing some freedive spearfishing off this with another guy and we'll have lots of gear- and hopefully fish on board. Need to get on plane quick. We'll see. I'll post results once its on.

Riptide, Have you removed the rail? If so did the nuts or whatever is inside the boat stay in place to be able to put the rail back? I'm hoping to get mine inside soon and would like to remove the rails to sand and paint. I'm concerned the fasteners will fall away and be gone forever. Thanks for any info you can offer.

First off I can't believe how long this thread is. Here is a 1985 Hobie that I got "Free" and re-did. I think I put about $300 in it, plus the motor. It was bottom painted and once I removed the paint I found a patch that needed to be re-done. The finish was badly chalking so I decided to give it the camo paint job.
I did this "recondition" in Spring of 2005, prior to this thread.
It was a nice riding boat, but kinda "tippy" while fishing in any chop.

Md, I like the way that you set up your boat. You definitely have a nice amount of room for fishing, and don't have to worry about the console taking up any space. I really like it. The paint job isn't my cup of tea, but it must be great for duck hunting.

By the way, has anyone here heard of Calibogie Boats? I saw on a site from Baja there was a discussion about them, and one of the guys said that these boats were based on the Hobie Power Skiff. I did a quick search, and they do indeed look a lot like the HPS. Their specs are pretty similar as well.

I just found this gem on eBay. 1999 Hobie Power Flats Skiff, with a 60 hp Yamaha, poling platform, and Stiffy Push Pole. Asking price is $5,500. Located in Roanoke, VA.

I'm thinking of selling my 20' Robalo, and if this boat is still available when/if I do, I'm going to seriously consider buying it. I love this look.
