I am the second owner of this Whip built in late 2000 but designated as a year 2001 model. I completely restored it in 2014. The hull was in great shape and just blocked and wet sanded before polishing. New plumbing and electrical, 50hp Honda tiller electric start with trim and tilt. Carbon Marine tiller extension.

Title in hand. Ready to fish. This is the one that made HB famous. Sitting on a delux aluminum Ramlin trailer. You can move this around by hand but will keep you dry and comfortable in a one foot chop. On calmer days you can fish tarpon on the outside with this skiff or push it through a bonefish flat. It’s a perfect fit in the salt marsh for hunting reds. Equipped with lights to fish the docks at night.

Yep, this is one of the icons in ice blue. I apologize but after just pulling the electronic title I realized that she’s a 2001 model built in late 2000. I’m sorry about the confusion on my part..., getting old.

Do you have an all-up weight as she sits, I am interested but just bought and sold another beautiful classic skiff because it was to heavy to lift. Needs to be around 800#, gonna go on deck of big boat

Hull is probably between 450-500#, 50hp Honda tiller 200#, misc. batteries-fuel-etc should bring it just under 800#.

A little too small for me, 220 on a poling platform would be sporty, 800 would be fine, maybe even 900 but I know the reported hull weights are frequently far off. Your estimate on the Hells Bay is probably very close. I'm going to weigh a friends 2001 tiller model with a 25 next week.....
It is not for sale but would help me to drive to Florida with my scale if it is 600-700 lbs.
