-be really nice to see the specs, length, beam, draft, hull weight, etc. Thanks.

Jan quoted specs from the web site based on a prototype.  Thanks Jan.

Since I'm not into hype, I was waiting for the actual specs for the completed hull.

The hull pictured was easily picked up and placed on the trailer by hand which means the original estimate for weight was high @ 280lbs. [smiley=1-thumbsup1.gif]  I can't wait to see what the weight will be for my bare bones skiff will be.  Guessing it is going to be around 200lbs. :cool:  We'll update as soon as I can post accurate info.

Looks like a cool boat.

On a side note, this shill would have been 10 times more effective if you showed the girl in the bikini from the front!

Capt Ron is this a bare bones? If not what upgrades does it have
The one pictured has optional decks and platform. Right now the decks are built to order.

Hopefully in the next week or so we will be posting pictures on my bare bones skiff with one option, a color upgrade. Unfortunately my color choice is delaying my build due to another series of unfortunate issues with our supplier. I understand he's back in action and hope to have the custom color gelcoat next week sometime.

The option list will be determined by our customer's requests and the interior standard layout is still work in progress. It's my intention to take my basic SUV and transform it to my own in pursuit of the perfect skiff.

Then guys would be thinking, "Boat, what boat?" ;)

BTW, this is a nice boat, me wants one.

If you guys only had an idea, she's quite the fisherperson, has no problem yanking a pull start tiller engine and running the boat, can back down a trailer faster than about anyone than I know. Downside is she'll bore you to death with details of latin genus/species of different flats grasses and water pH, etc. as a budding marine bio.

Better have your game on if you think you can outfish her...

Would a 40hp be too much for one of these?


How about a 30hp?

A buddy of mine has a 3cyl short shaft yamaha that would fit great on there and I can probably get off of him.

This is definitely a skiff that looks great and I can afford to pay cash.

Max rated for the SUV is 25hp.

We have the Copperhead that can be rated up to 50 hp. Copperhead runs nice with a 30 hp but if you want more details, feel free to contact me. Contact info is in my sig. ;)
