The day has finally come to sell my baby. I'm the second owner, purchased the skiff in 2013 when I worked at Hell's Bay. Boat is one of only a small handful that were built this way with no gunwales, floor, or actual cap. Total weight with motor, half tank of gas, and safety bag is 650lbs. If you're looking for a classic, this is it. Of all the skiffs I've run, I've yet to find one that can get shallower. It has spent the majority of it's time with me on Mosquito Lagoon, but after moving down to Jupiter a few years ago it just really isn't the ideal boat for me anymore. Just want to see it go to a good home.

Selling price: $23,500

Location: Jupiter, FL

I'm encouraging all of my friends to buy this so that I can fish out of it.... That thing is awesome. First Hells Bay I ever rode on was a bare bones Waterman 16 that belonged to Hal. Chris and Jimbo Meador pulled it over to Lake Charles to demo it at a small conclave our fly fishing club was hosting. I know they sold at least one skiff off of that demo.

Sad to see her go BHall, but someone is going to love her!

Cant beat this classic hull/setup.

We’ve had some great times on her buddy! Definitely a game changer on those flood tides. Gonna be hard to watch her leave
