1st off, I would like to tell my story. I have been member of this forum since 2005 and have spent most of my life on our waters. Frayed Knot aka Boaterguy360 aka Capt. Chris White. I have always loved inshore fishing and have owned small skiffs over the past 20 yrs. A good buddy gave me his Hobie Outback about year ago and I ended up selling my boat. I am only manual propelled from now on! It's a whole new deal and Im loving the up close and personal sight fishing!
