  1. Sabine Flats Boat (Wood) Build

    Bragging Spot
    Not sure if this goes here but I just received the plans for this skiff. Looks like I'm going to build the 19' ((OPTIONAL 17' 4" OR 15' 8 )) Sabine version since most MFG are 9/12months out on builds. Says she floats in 5” of water. Might add trim tabs and sponsons (float pods) to help the stern...
  2. Salt Marsh Build Options

    General Discussion
    For those of you with Ankonas or Salt Marshes... what are your favorite components? Any options / upgrades you did that you wish you hadn’t or weren’t worth the extra expense? Thinking of having a Heron 16 built and, though this is all pretty person/use specific, would love input from folks as...

    I have a fs-18 build I have started. I have completed the hull, fiberglass, fairing, epoxy, graphite and the skeg. I began the inside of the hull but have run out of interest to continue as i could not wait and bought a finished boat so I spend my off time actually fishing. I would like to...
  5. Looking for build ideas......

    General Discussion
    New to the group. I'm thinking of building the fs18 I've seen a few pics but not sure of stability for two and how wet the ride is, also the places I like to fish can get pretty choppy getting in and out. Just looking for a little feedback, or maybe another skiff plan to check out before I get...

  7. 5m Aluminium skiff

    Bragging Spot
    I’ve been designing my own 5m aluminium skiff to run 40hp. I’m looking for opinions from anyone with building skiff knowledge. This model Is 3D printed and painted 1/20 scale. I need the bow sitting a little higher in the water. If I change the sides from 25 degrees to 15 degrees it will help...
  8. Line-X a Hull ?

    General Discussion
    I am looking to build a wooden boat in about 6months and just thinking, has anyone ever tried Line-X for their hulls? I did a search but nothing unless I did that wrong. It reads that it can be applied to wood, fiberglass, plastics etc., and it seals they say. Seems easy enough, maybe even epoxy...
  9. 16' Scooter Flats Boat Project.

    General Discussion
    The wife wants a bigger boat than the 13' StumpNocker so I bought some plans for a future build. Should be fun and rewarding at the same time. We will see how it goes but I will be leaving the center console off and using a tiller for now. Link to Scooters info...
