    This skiff was completely restored from the stringers up.  The Owner is Tommy of Bluewater Chairs.  If you have seen his chairs you know the amount of detail and craftmanship he can produce.  This is Tommy's personal skiff/project.  Budget was NOT in the equation when he put her back together.  Capt Karl Glockner was Tommy's mentor with the rebuild.   This is your chance to own a CLASSIC that has ALREADY been restored and ready to fish and TURN HEADS

    I ain't skeeerd.   $11K ;) He knows what he has and priced to match these economic times IMHO.

    Any way we can get a copy of this to the "Classic" section. May be going out on a limb here, but I think she's worthy. :D

    All BS aside that is a shockingly low price on that boat. It's a piece of history. I never would have imagined it that low.

    I would be stunned if that boat lasts a week. It needs to be listed in more places to get it in front of the right buyer.

    Absolutely incredible opportunity that doesn't come across often in one's life. Almost feel like it should be listed in the Dupont registry for cryin' out loud!

    I would have guessed at triple the price. What a beauty.

    A good friend of mine (BobbyC) has one and I thought his was the nicest one. This one is unreal. I asked Bobby about 12K for his and he said NO WAY!! If I had 11K this would be a done deal!!

    That right there is the honest problem. No one is walking around with 11K ready to buy a boat. It's a sign of the times. I too would be ALL over this one IF I felt comfortable pinching off a few K out of my resources. It would be in my driveway right now. According to what I have been told it was listed for about 20K. And got no bites. I hope someone who appreciates the skiff picks her up soon!

    Cheers

    That is a stunning skiff. What is the hull made of? What would the draft be on something like this?
