Homemade technical skiff
Mar 25th, 2009 at 11:45am
 
Finished a cool plywood skiff, with 2 people and 15hp she floats in 3", tracks great, runs around 25mph with 2 guys. Used seadek in cockpit, 15hp 2 stroke Yamaha,20' Stiffy extreme, Tiller extention is homemade from a drop piece of a stiffy extreme. Removable poling platform, painted hull with awlgrip. She is about as tippy as a Glades skiff, just floats shalower. Redfish beware.

length-17'6"
42" bottom
280lbs

last pics are of completed skiff.

I like it, for some reason the lines seem familiar.
Just can't seem to place the design...I'm sure it'll come to me.

Brett, there's not a lot of design options in this realm, only so much can be done with door skins under 18' LOA and 40" something inch beam. Smiley

Looks great, nice and clean fishing machine. Impressive hat racks in the garage too.  Cool

WOW! Gotta use it while Curtis is out of town.

Outstanding work. Love the christening, at first I thought you lost your sea legs and expected the next picture to be of a big splash.

Welcome to Microskiff!  Cool little skiff too.  We might need to add our own sub-forum soon, home built micros!

Watch out, those decks are slick!  Did you add any non-skid to those or Sea Dek?
