It is time to sell one of my most prized possessions.... One of a kind and historically significant poling skiff! This boat is the epitome of South Florida poling skiffs and was constructed from the ground up as a poling skiff. A composite cored hull makes this one of the lightest skiffs of any Challenger ever manufactured. Perfection Industries (a manufacturer of much larger yachts) built a handful of these skiffs for market and I've been the proud owner of this skiff for over 10 years. The "round chine" Challenger is synonymous with the ability to achieve plane in the shallowest of waters Flamingo has to offer. Draft is 4.5" at rest and 6" with peeps and gear. I'm fairly certain there's less than 10 Challengers that are still in use and I believe this is one of, if not the finest example on the water today. 1982 Challenger Skiff with a Yamaha 40hp 2 stroke and Ram-Lin trailer. Always garage kept! Skiff was restored by me and a few paint experts in 2004 - 2005 with the following: * Professionally painted with Imron paint on the hull, deck and inside of every hatch, including epoxy coated 22 gallon aluminum baffled fuel tank. I left the paint work to the pros! Teak spray and chine rails finished with 3 coats of West Systems UV epoxy with an additional 3 coats of Imron "high solids" clear coat. * Fully guttered hatches that are the driest I've ever seen. HB was not around when this skiff was made, but I guarantee that they used some ideas from these skiffs. Mitered hatches with tolerences I've never seen on any skiff to date.. * I personally rewired the entire hull to "Hells Bay" standards using only Ancor tinned marine grade wiring, heat shrink connections and dielectric grease on every connection. Every single electrical connection is clean and every electrical component works as new! The Blue Seas fuse box is housed in a teak box that you will ot see on any skiff today! * Highest quality 316 Stainless Steel hardware throughout. * Teleflex NFB steering with custom aluminum steering wheel. * New battery as of 3/14 and wired for trolling motor with a removable "goose neck" Bluepoint trolling motor bracket. * Yamaha 40hp 2 stroke with approx. 350 total hours. This Yamaha weighs only 158lbs and is in excellent shape. Gently used, but one hell of an outboard! * Recently refurbished Ram-Lin trailer... including new hubs, bearings and bunks. in very good condition, You can tow this boat to Texas tomorrow without concern.. * ICOM VHS radio for confidence on deep glades trips.. I rigged every inch of this skiff myself and I was extremely detail oriented in every aspect of the restoration.. There was no corners cut on this skiff.. There is too much info to post in one thread I'd be happy to answer any questions you have.. PM me your phone number and I'll call you asap. Many, many pictures available, including everything during the restoration upon request. Exceptional fit and finish that may surpass any skiff on the market today. Take a look and you'll see why. This skiff has been fished and has a few minor scratches on her hull. There is truly too much info to list here, so call or text for much more detailed info. ** There are numerous people here that have seen the skiff in person and can attest to her overall appearance and condition... Price is $13,000 and worth every penny.. Please call or text 863- five eight one - 0072 with any questions or serious inquiries. I really want this boat to go to someone that will appreciate her lineage and fish her more than I've been able to.. This skiff does not belong in a warehouse. It should be enjoyed by someone who will fish her more than I can at this time.. I'd be happy to explain that too... Sincerely. Bob C. This was taken a week ago! Last weekend in the Glades. This skiff catches fish... some don't. Deck is dirty from a full day of fishing. Cleans up like new.. At the dock... My 5 year old son & I.. 2 weeks ago.. Dockside... Deep in the Glades... Older picture from 2 years ago with the old trailer. Has not been out of storage much... Older picture, but looks the same! Shortly after the resto was completed, but you can see the attention to detail on my part..
