    We popped out a basic Native SUV hull last year to play with on the west coast.  Since then we have developed the top cap and rear deck.  Things have been so busy with customer delivery and then the cold that we just now found the window of opportunity to make this one my own.  I'm at Ankona this weekend to build and fit my new top cap:

    She's in the pipe shop for the next week or so. I'll post pics of the progress when I start to rig her.

    That’s the plan. ;)

    I'm new to Microskiff, but I am following this boat closely. It is exactly what I am looking for as flats/duck skiff. You'll be hearing from me soon over at the Skiff Shop.
