Fish reviews on Curlew shallow water performance

Anyone have experience with the Curlew model made by NewWater Boatworks. Looks like amazing piece of gear and have heard generally good comments.

as transportation and then get out and wade it would be a great ride. I see a lot of them down in Laguna Modra. They do run very shallow. As a fly casting platform I would look for something with less deck clutter. I have fished out of the Stilt and it is a great boat quiet easy to pole and very dry., a very good fly casting platform. Any of the NewWater boats are really good, you just have to decide on what you want most from your boat.

Curlew as transport

YES on transporting to wade fishing area; boat apparently runs very shallow and can pole thru shallow water but much more ungainly and bulky and less responsive than the narrower, very lite technical skiffs from what I understand.
