    So remember the little boat company by the name of kingdom boatworks that was supposed to be producing skiffs, starting with the Rook 16 designed by Harry Spears? unfortunately it never took off. I wish it would have, i loved the idea. From what i was told (and from what i can remember) three boats were made, two did not come out of the mold properly. One did make it however and it was used to demonstrate the companys first product. the Rook 16. Well, the owner of said company sold me the one and only boat he had ever made. I love the boat. It is light, reliable, easy to maintain, easy to poll, sips gas, and now its for sale.


    The boat hasnt changed much from when i bought it barebones almost a year ago.

    New Michigan Wheel Prop
    Minnkota Riptide 55lb thrust bow mount
    25hp yamaha tiller
    strong arm marine polling and casting platforms
    minnkota battery box w/ two 12v outlets and breakers
    group 27 AGM battery
    19"6in carbon marine pushpole

    The GPS is not included, although it could be for the right price

    Didn't the mold go to Ankona, now the Low Country 16, albeit with some tweaks?

    Exactly right! I believe it's produced under a company called salt marsh skiffs, a sister company of Ankona

    Nothing crazy. With 6 gallons of gas, a 65qt yeti, two anglers, Rods, and the battery (which weighed in at 63lbs) I cruised at 22 and topped out at 28. I'm sure if I had power trim I coulda seen 30. The boat isn't a speed demon but man is it capable of some skinny stuff
