    Hey Guys - new member here on Wadmalaw Island, SC. I've been reading through this very cool site for a little while now and you folks have inspired me to get off my butt and put a sander in my hand.

    I've been boat-less for a while now and living on a island, seems kinda ridiculous. So I've been toying with either building or rehabbing a small skiff for the creeks and marshes around here. I ran across this little 1967 Sears Skiff last week, really liked the hull shape and got it on a (crappy) trailer for $500. The inside is really basic, will basically be guttin it, starting fresh. Your input and ideas are appreciated.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    I'll do my best to keep posting as things progress. Will also try to get the photo posting thing worked out.

    Use photobucket and copy/paste the img code after you upload.  And post the restoration in the bragging section.  That's where 99% of the boat porn is on this site.

    Welcome to the site. You won't find a place with more helpful people.

    Welcome to microskiff! Gin and Tonic please... ;D

    Photobucket is an easy and popular way to post pictures on internet forums.

    Congrats on the new project!

    I've never seen a Sears skiff like that, most of the Gamefishers I've seen were Whaler knock-offs.  I like that hull though!

    Thanks for the advice on photobucket - more shots here..
    I'll move this over to the Bragging section once I get make a little progress. The title says it's a Sears boat, but there is no ID plate on the boat that I can find yet.. [​IMG][​IMG]

    And you find it either, they didn't start with that type of info until 72' or sometime close around there.

    Welcome to the forum and good luck with the rebuild! [smiley=cheers.gif]
