East Cape Fury review...

I thought you guys might like to read this review I'm doing about the new East Cape Fury poling skiff.

I got out on the boat with Capt. Scott Null for a day and put the Fury through the paces. I own a Beavertail so I've spent my fair share of butt time in a skiff, and this new Fury is a sweet friggin' sled. I think the coolest part of it is the raised console. I've never been in a skiff that had a console this high, and it's a completely different experience.

Part 1 is up today. I'm already working on part 2 for tomorrow.

Thats cool man. I've been seeing these "florida-style" skiffs in Texas waters a little more in the last year or so. Are they beginning to gain popularity here? If so why do you think? Shallow water performance, fuel efficiency, just a new approach??
I'm becoming more of a back lakes/skinny water kinda guy and one of these might be my next rig in the future.

Saw this boat last night and I'm thoroughly impressed. Well thought-out and designed boat.

They're starting to catch on here in Texas for a number of reasons many of which you named. There might be shallower running and smoother riding boats but not many boats are as stealthy or float as shallow as a skiff. A skiff is a good boat if you spend a majority of your time in the back lakes. My first boat is going to be a skiff and East Cape is definitely on the short list of boats I'm considering.


BTW, great photos.

Very nice skiff! I like the trend that boat manufacturers and aluminum shops are going toward with the powder coated aluminum. NewWater had one at the San Antonio boat show with the pc aluminum with a little curve to it instead of right angles everywhere. Great review too, I can't wait for part 2!

Thanks guys. I'm loving the PC aluminum. Cleans up really easy. I also do a good bit of photography and you don't get the glare the way you do with bare aluminum.

The guys at East Cape are great to work with and they can do just about any custom thing you want done. I wanted a bigger gas tank...done. I wanted the mini-tower console...done. Custom color...no problem. They build them one at a time and have their own aluminum shop on premises.

This is my third Florida style poling skiff so I knew exactly what I wanted and they put it all together for me. Couldn't be happier.

Here's a quick video that shows all the details on the build.

The powder coating is definitely a nice touch. It adds a finished feel to the whole rig.
