Carolina Skiff 19 DLX

One big advantage of a flat bottom skiff hull is the ability to run in very shallow water, it's mainly limited by the amount of water required for the outboard's lower unit. The Carolina Skiff DLX has a tunnel designed into the bottom of the boat which allows you to run the engine higher in the water column, greatly reducing the amount of water you need to operate the boat. Add to the transom a hydraulic jack plate and now you can adjust your outboards height on the fly to get the most shallow water performance you can out of your boat. A tunnel jack plate combination will also allow you to jump on plane in less water too. Anglers that have boats that draw very little water tend to fish further up onto the flats in search of the allusive redfish or permit. One problem is that boats require a lot more water to get up on plane than they do to float, unless you have a tunnel hull. Instead of trolling your way back to a channel, like a boat with conventional hull design would have to do, position your jack plate in the full up position and as you add power the tunnel will funnel water up to the prop.
