WTB: Wrecked, Damaged Neglected Micro skiffs
Sep 6th, 2010 at 3:07pm
 
Looking for a micro skiff project. I am looking for a specific type to fix rebuild. Some thing Like and old Dolphin, Egret Hells bay Ect.... 14-16 ft super shallow and simple designs.


I would really like to find a damaged or neglected Boat that is structurally ok.

Thanks

Isn't that an oxymoron? like jumbo shrimp, or military intelligence? Wink

It would be helpful if you listed your price range.

Haha I was thinking the same thing when I wrote that I guess what i mean is a boat that has been damaged but not so bad it is beyond repair.

My price would be relative to the specific hull and its condition.

I know this is off-topic, but I've given alot of thought to Jumbo Shrimp as an oxymoron, and finally decided since size is relative that the creatures we call jumbo shrimp are in fact really big shrimp, and therefore jumbo shrimp. Sorry bout that, but had to say it. Grin

I started on this but work got slow. Its a 1963 Winner I cut the top of the boat down its nice and fair cut and was going to enclose the forward deck and stern with flush decks and wide gunnels with a cockpit in the center. Threw a motor on it and gave it a sea trial. but did not get much further than that. I used to take it out on the flats and didnt draw much water and deck and transom are in excelent condition for the age of the boat. Hull is also pretty fair. hope this picture comes out
