Unique Boat! - Everglades Canoe Company
Wilson and I came across the Everglades Canoe Company's display at the Tampa Tribune Outdoors Expo & Boat Show last weekend. They have put together what appears to be the next generation version of the Gheenoe. I hope the Everglades folks don't take that as an insult. It's just the best comparison my uncreative mind can come up with.
Anyway, the design is unlike anything I've seen in a production boat. The company officially opened its doors about six weeks ago and currently offers the Gladesmen 18 as their flagship model. These boats offer some cool options as well. The company plans on launching a 17' and 15' model in the near future. Definitely some boats to keep an eye out for. I wonder if you could throw a Go-Devil on these?

Is that the type of boat you'd use for bonefishing? (Pls forgive the dumb question; I am completely ignorant re. Southern waters fishing)

You certainly could, although it seems more at home to me among the mangroves of the Ten Thousand Islands (near Naples), reeds of the Everglades, or oyster beds in the big bend area of Florida. But, a skinny water boat like that would be well suited for chasing bones up on a flat I would think. I suppose it's just a matter of local custom. Functionally, it would be good for bone fishing.
