    Sea Ark vs carolina skiff

    I know this question comes up a lot but looking for some more insight. I currently run an 1860 sea ark. I love it but I'm chartering now and it's tight with gear and more than two people. I'm really considering the 24 dlx for space and stability. Plus the shallow draft. I don't want a bay boat so what are thoughts on skiff vs sea ark.

    If you're running big bend I'd go with a larger Sea Ark all day every day.
    Don't they make those jons up to 2472 or something like that?

    can't speak for Sea Ark, but the old style Carolina Skiff is a tank, a wet tank, but a tank.

    The customers may appreciate the smoother ride in the Carolina skiff.

    How long have you used your Sea Ark in salt water? Has it held up well? Any corrosion issues?

    My hull is a 93. I have some electrolysis but nothing major and I recoat with gluv it resin every year or two. I fish saltwater a lot.

    I like the durability of the sea ark. Beat it up and it keeps ticking.

    I was about to buy the skiff but have been reading about water intrusion issues on the c skiff now I'm a little scared.

    They do make a 2472. Really nice. More expensive out of the gate

    Parker They are quite a work boat for us. Surveys, diving, barge support.
