    Long time forum lurker first time poster! I picked up this skiff about a month ago I picked it up because I really liked the lines. According to the previous owner it was once used as a duck boat then converted back into a skiff. Well he explained to me the work he had done to it beginning with the floors which he explained about how he used two pieces of 3/4 inch ply and glassed them in place.... Based upon that and the fact I could see that he used "great stuff" foam for floatation and to seal around the pipes he used to run 4gauge power wire through I knew this was going to be a project!

    This skiff looks like a cross between a Johnsen skiff and a Mitchell skiff.

    Plans are to keep it a tiller raise the transom back to the original  20" stringers decks etc...

    Not quiet sure on what HP i should use as this boat will be a inshore fishing boat used for skinnier water and stalking snook and tarpon!!
