Red,

Understand your concerns about freeboard.  If you're down this way (South Florida), give me a shout and I'll take you for a ride.

Gator/Skep,

A few years ago we came across Florida Bay, mother shipping a canoe to hit some no motor zones.  When we came in the entrance of Lake Ingram canal we passed a boat and the Captain yelled "nice panga" with enthusiasm.  We exchange quick pleasantries and cruised on. My buddy turned to me as they passed and said, "Do you know who that is?"  I had no idea.  So he informed me the Captain was XXX? from the Florida Insider Fishing Report.  A popular TV show for fishermen here in FL (except me). 

I only bring this up because most of the guides in Florida Bay fish a skiff or hybrid bay boat with a shallow draft around Flamingo.  But they know a Panga when they see one and seem to admire them.

This wasn't the first guide to comment.  I've had two ask about the hull and what I thought. A Florida Wildlife Officer seemed to admire it as he did safety check one day.  I've even had Asian tourists taking pictures of it while I'm loading it on the trailer.  It seemed they recognized it immediately.  So I hold up our biggest catch of the day and they respond with smiles and happiness then take lots of pictures.  Cool stuff.

A Panga is so cool, so unique, and so versatile that it get's attention.  But they're days that its not wise to go out.  On those days, the Captains who own bay boats must be wondering if they could get out there if they had a different boat and make $$.  I say yes.  I've done it.  Caught fish and returned safely. Just wanted to share.

Red,

May I recommend visiting a Panga meet up.  We have one scheduled for Veteran's day weekend (See Sand Bar Thread).  If we are successful there will be several owners there to take you for a ride and talk Pangas.  You could then drive north to Sarasota with some ideas to talk to Panga Marine and Andros about before pulling the trigger.

Concur...not a Panga, but a gimmick.

Have you guys seen this?  I just found it yesterday.  Maybe I'm late to the party.

I have a PM Boca and I have to cross Biscayne Bay from my ramp of choice to get to the reefs and blue water.  On some days, especially in the winter, we get a persistent 15 to 20 knot wind out of the east which chops the bay up.  My Panga is much dryer than the 22 Sea Pro or the Pathfinder 20 I've fished on in the same area.  But if you are running cross wind or at a angle to the wind, the spray still comes over the bow and wet you.  Going strait into the wind or with a trailing wind it's a dry ride.  I think others Panga owners will agree.

Hope this helps and good luck in your search.
