Jun 30th, 2009 at 7:23pm
 
i am gonna go look at a one of these boats tomorrow used and was wondering if anyone had any experiance or info on them. Mainly i wanna make sure theres no wood in the construction since i'm dealing with a rotted transom on my project boat. Seems like a nice boat...

I'm pretty sure they used wood in their construction, but that's no reason to pass up a good boat.  Properly maintained and/or sealed, a wood-cored hull shouldn't cause you any problems for many many years.  Open holes, cracks, or gouges that allow water into direct contact with the wood core is a recipe for wet, rotted wood.  Otherwise, not a big deal.

Don't know much about the boat itself though, never knew anyone who had one.

yea those boats do look very similar, did you have any problems with your claymont skiff? When i look at this boat is there any way; beside drilling holes (owner probably wouldnt like that), to make sure there is no water intrusion in the transom. I have been screwed over on so many boat purchases that i am very nervous about making the plunge again..
thanks

I haven't had any problems with mine, it's been a great little skiff to me.

Those boats were built next door to us at Mitzi years ago until the company moved and folded...  They were all built fairly well although there is wood in the construction everywhere. If it looks real good should be ok...feel free to drop me an email

They are your basic low tier boat, my dad used to make boat windshields for them back in the day middle 80's to early 90's.  decent boat, they def have wood in them though.
