    Where are the pictures? Surely if you can afford three HB boats, you can figure out how to post pics or get one of your people to do it.

    I have 2 Hellsbay skiffs and 1 Contender. I've asked my friend Bill Hempel to post the photos as he has them.

    Sorry, my bad. With only two HB skiffs and a Contender you need not know how to post pics. ;)

    Dumbest thing I've heard in a while... :-? What does affording three boats have to do with posting pictures on a forum, that is not easy for many to do on here?

    No. That's my previous Whipray to the one that I'm currently offering for sale.

    Well that is one nice boat, a real jaw dropper. Sweeeeet, wish I was home because I wouldn't find a need to look further. The very best to the seller and the buyer. Whoever buys it should take some photos of their first trip on the bragging forum.

    Just out of curiosity. Would you care to say what you thought the pros/cons are from your early whipray to this one?

    This is one of the nicest skiffs ever! Your vintage skiff wasn't too bad either. My question is now that you have had two of the baddest whips ever. What in the hell are you gonna get next?

    Very little difference to be honest. My older one was not for sale but I was contacted by a gentleman who saw  the photos on this web site shortly after I completed it and he made me a generous offer. I kind of like these projects so I agreed to sell it. The draft on both skiffs is virtually the same (I measured both). Seems like the newer skiff tracks a little better in the wind. Top end speed on my current skiff is slightly less. Current skiff " feels" more solid but that could be my imagination. I raised the floor in the current skiff and it does drain better than the last one. I often hear how the newer skiffs are heavier than the older versions and that might be true but I honestly can't say the performance overall is any different. Hope that answers your question. As far as my what I get next, I always dreamed of owning something big enough to put a skiff or two on top of and tow my Contender behind..................Still working toward that goal.

    Ken- the prop is a Powertech 10.25 by 13 pitch part# REB3R13PTN40. It does a great job.

    FMH has always had the cleanest boats on earth, literally no comparison. Seriously
    awlgrip white trim tab actuators, perfection. I would take a gamble and say every screwhead on the boat lines up perfectly
