This is a project I started but don't have the spare time to finish. I fixed a couple of cracks in the hull and the floor as well as replaced a section of wood in the floor.

The seller lost the title and gave me a copy of the registration and bill of sale to apply for the lost title.

$300 or best offer.















Picture with poling platform mock up. (PP not included but for sale seperatly)






As you can see I didn't spend a great deal on a quality appearence, I just wanted a basic flats skiff.

All serious offers are welcome.

This is an ongoing project so it may change from time to time. Very little time from time and hopefully an improvement.

Re: 14' fiberglass hull

I wish I had space for another project.  Maybe I can sell the lucraft and put my motor on this boat.... [smiley=highhorse.gif]

Wow man, I would have definitely picked this up a couple weeks ago before I got into my project.

Re: 14' fiberglass hull

I have a -very- similar hull to that one in my barn, awaiting a refurb into a poling skiff. They have very similar lines to the early poling skiffs, I think. Should run like a raped ape with the 50hp nissan I have waiting for it.

Re: 14' fiberglass hull

Is it a Johnson, or a Mitchell?  Or something else entirely?
Manatee made in Plametto, FL Early '80s I think.

I was thinking the lines looked similar to this:

If I had more spare time I would have loved to deck it and make it a kind of /sort of copy of it.

Re: 14' fiberglass hull

Yup, Wind River, Fibercraft, Willys etc. Classic bonefishing skiffs I believe.

Deck that thing and make neo-classic out of her!

Re: 14' fiberglass hull

That looks real close to the Johnsen hull I have. It looks like many skiffs builders from that era all copied each other, Mitchell, plametto, Johnsen and I'm sure there are many more look similar.

Re: 14' fiberglass hull

Long time onlooker finally breaking my silence, is this sold?
Not yet, somebody is coming by this weekend.

I also have this on a trailer now that I will post if things don't work out with interested party.

And welcome. Great first post considering it is a question about something I'm selling!;D

I don't think the logistics is going to work out for me, I wish it was closer.

Good luck with the sale, it'll make a great rig for someone.

Re: 14' fiberglass hull

Got it on the trailer for a package deal of $600 OBO. or will seperate. Magic Tilt that tilts! Trailer could use some welding at the base of the winch post and the tongue is a little bent, could use straightening. Everything else is good to go.
