    Default marion skiffs

    Was curious what anyone could fill me in on Marion Skiffs. Guess they were built in Anchorage. Such as quality of construction? Seaworthy? How they might do in 2 ft seas? Look like might be pretty flat bottomed without much deadrise? Thanks in advance for any input! Dan

    Depends on which model you buy. The flatbottom river boat will pound your teeth out & the semi or deep vee will do okay in two foot seas but MBW built decent boats.
