    Can someone give me a brief timeline on the whole HB then Gordon then HB timeline, I guess my real ? Is a Gordon built during certain years a Gordon or a HB and what are the differences in the values? Thanks I tried researching this online but couldn't find much. Are there certain model years that command higher values than others?

    I don't know. SpruceCreek's 01 Waterman 16 didn't sell and TailN's 03 Whip Pro is still for sale. Different time/situation I would definitely have one of these 3. Good luck to the seller. It looks like a great skiff.

    If I didn't have my Gordon I sure would take a hard look at this one. No liner = skinny, these just don't show up often.
    Good luck on this sale a very nice boat.

    28mph alone and 24mph with two. Depending on what prop the skiff is turning. I have seen tillers up to 50 on these skiffs. I wouldn't recommend it though.

    Rated up to 40hp. My 01' runs 36mph on Gps, but more realistically 34mph. That's with a 4 stroke 40 and a light load. Averaging 28- 30 loaded.

    It's a nice rig, somebody will fall in love with it.

    I have almost the same skiff but with gunnels and a 2 stroke 40Hp Merc. Ive been told the skiff will do 36-37mph but I've only seen 34mph but it was on an iphone app. Had the same motor as Capt. Eli and saw the same numbers with a heavy cupped 3 blade 10 pitch. Running a 3 blade 13P Vengeance now. If I could do it again I would of kept the Yammi besides the Carb issue (Ive heard you can fix that with 25hp jets)it was a fantastic motor. Great holeshot and most people don't know this but its lighter than any other 40-50hp on the market besides the 50hp Yammi 2stroke. Sorry to get off subject just thought Id throw out my opinion if anyone wanted to do a used repower.

    I owned a 2006 Tom Gordon Waterman 16 Hull #4 that was built as light at Tom could make it.. No floor, no electric, except the Lenco trim tabs and had a 12lb battery for that.. Wide open with a 25hp Merc and a 13 pitch Vengeance prop was 31mph solo.. Add another sport and we were at 28mph WOT.. Cruise was around 26mph and this was one of the lightest 16's made...

    You're only going to get so much out of a 25hp, so enjoy the ride.. I loved mine and still wish I owned that skiff!
