I’ve always preferred to start from a bare hull and rig each of my boats the way I wanted it (for better or worse…). Pretty sure you can start that way or pay to have everything from pumps on up- to all the bells and whistles… done by the manufacturer or a skilled shop.
Definitely agree that would be cool. I’d just rather have it ready to fish.

I’m hull #1, skiff should be ready in a few weeks, they got a delay in trailer delivery so that’s held things up a bit from what was supposed to be a first week of January delivery.

As of a few days ago I believe they have about 15 people in line.
Are you getting a completely built hull? Will it come with a homemade title? I'm interested in these skiffs as well. Curious about build quality / fit finish.

Nice, I'm #5 and completely stoked. Share some skiff porn when you get it!

Hoping to be picking up the skiff around February 1st or 2nd. I just talked to Mike over at SS and they had some unfortunate issues dealing with Continental for trailers and have just found another company to work with for their trailers. I guess they placed a trailer order with Continental back in early December that was supposed to take a month, and now at the end of January Continental hadn't even started their order. That's been the holdup as they have their first 4 skiff orders just about ready to deliver.

I'll post pictures once I get her!

By any chance do you know who the new manufacturer is? And are the prices going to stay the same although there is a new trailer manufacture involved.

Trailer Tech, they are out of Miami. No price change for me, so I would assume anyone who is in the que will not see any price difference. Mike did say these would be better build quality than what they were supposed to be getting direct from the Continental factory.

Upon taking a closer look, I believe these are still Continental trailers, just sold from a dealer rather than factory direct. He did say these new trailers would be I-Beam frame whereas the original Continentals they were going to use were not.

Hope that helps.

Love to hear that. That’s great news for everyone in line. Hopefully the process moves faster. Can’t wait for mine.

Well it looks like a decree has come from on high and it’s been declared I will be picking up my Simple Skiff complete build hull #1 on February 8th.

I’ll keep you guys posted with some pictures and reviews shortly after!

Had something come up scheduling wise for today and I'm instead heading to pick her up this coming Monday the 14th. I’ve already had a few messages sent my way so I figured I’d let y’all know.
