    Sounds like a good plan leaving it open. What motor you going with?

    Got some more goodies in the past couple of days! Finally got all of my glass work stuff to the house and just got my grab rail in today and a poling platform in last week. 20171012_174618.jpg 6aee6bd3b5fbb78433f90f4068c3d3ec.jpg

    "build" - I clicked on this,expecting to see someone actually building a boat - laying up a hull - that's BUILDING a boat.making an aft deck,that's RIGGING

    big difference

    could we please stop using the term "build" ? if you add rod holders to a boat,did you build it ?? if I put different tires/wheels on my jeep - did I build my jeep ?

    just one of those things that makes no sense...

    Calm down, if the man wants to put "build" in his thread then by all means go ahead. We rarely see these kind of threads anymore. A microskiff original I would call it.

    Predacious, Adding a fore and aft deck and walk around gunwales to a hull is a lot of work, and possibly something you have not done yourself, but if you have, post some pics. This is going to be a nice little flats skiff. Good luck with the build, it's a lot of fun, other than the sanding.

    I think the build is going to look good. Can't wait to see the finished build.

    Dude, you are going to give yourself a reputation in the same vain as George (Chittum). Stop being so fanatic, keep building those Piranha Boats, and let other people do their own re"BUILDS". No reason to split hairs here, its just semantics...

    no hate - it sounds really stupid when someone says - "i built my boat" - and all that really happened is,someone added a few accessories.now,if you take that as hate,that's your problem,stating the obvious....
