    I have owned this boat since 2006 and have treated it as if it were one of my Kids! Many fish have come to hand out of this skiff. If you are looking for a super skinny skiff that is stealthy quiet, this is the one. If you know Hell's Bay, You know the drill. Feel free to give me a call with any questions you might have. Semper Fi, Ron

    Price is $30,000 firm.
    I also have a casting platform and a 21.5-22ft Stiffy Hybrid we might be able to work something out with. I have not put the skiff on Boat Trader yet. Hopefully, I won't have to.

    I used to be anti-bimini, but once I put one on, I was sold. You gotta go big though, 8 footer for sure & quick release!

    After having a Melanoma removed and numerous trips to the Derm for Liquid Nitrogen treatments, some things in life become a lot more important than looking badass and cool.

    Having the ability to get out of the mid-day sun for a while or booze cruisin' with the wife and dogs, getting that little bit of shade is a guilty luxury.

    My next build will have a big-ass removable bimini like Devildog's. GLWS.

    Sorry about the late response. I should be able to get you those measurements tomorrow. The skiff is at our River house. Semper Fi, Ron

    Here you go! Sorry it took so long. Just went to the Skiff today. Boat length on trailer is 25 feet 7 inches long, 66 inches tall from platform to the ground and 79 inches wide including wheel wells on trailer. I have had to put in my past garages at an angle. My vehicles (except my Harley)have taken a backseat when it comes to being safe and sound in the garage. ;) Hope this helps.
