I have been looking for a small skiff but I can't seem to find something to fit the idea I have in my mind. I would like something light enough to be able to scoot with my 5hp merc. My jon boat goes 14mph with the 5hp and I know I can get more out of it, but that's fast enough for what I'm looking for. I want a small little skiff to get real skinny. I have my bigger skiff with the 40hp for the bigger stuff but I would really love a small canoe-like skiff. Something that looks sort of like a miniature flats stalker 18, or gladesmen like skiff. Something that I can put a small poling platform, and push pole. suggestions on materials and whatnot. I have read where people use door skins for the outside. I will use the stitch and glue method. I would guess that I would use biaxial tape on all the joints, then cover the whole thing in 1708 biaxial cloth. Any ideas, and advice would be great. I searched for plans on Bateau.com but there's nothing like what I have in mind. Thanks, -Eric I'm thinking maybe something like this.
