hmmm, are you talking about the 14-16' skiffs that were made out of Emearld City, NC? If so, I believe the person who produced them sold the molds to a company called bluewater...or something like that...I had one a couple of years and it was a no frills kind of boat, well built for the price...If you have any more questions about them, just let me know...

have a great day...

I think I know that boat! It sounds very much like the boat that I sold a few years ago...it was a nice boat but I ended moving up to my dream boat, my current whaler...it was worth the $4k...everything on it was less than a 18months old...nice package all together...would have been nice to see if this was the same boat...

Small world, huh?

Default Sandpiper Skiffs

Well, I had a Sandpiper and commercially fished out of it for a while. It was the best built boat in its class I have ever seen. I crabbed, clammed, scalloped and shrimped out of it. When I rode on others boats it made me glad to have the Sandpiper. On days when it was too rough for some to get out, even in much bigger boats, my Sandpiper got me out and back comfortably.

The company was based in Cape Carteret, NC with a mailing address of Emerald Isle, NC. Certified Fiberglass was a one man operation and the boat building business was sold a couple of years ago. He only made 14 and 16 foot skiffs and eventually dropped the 14 footer due to the demand of the 16 footer.

If there is anything you want to know about Sandpiper, let me know as I can easily find out for you.

ESMD...

Yea, that sounds like the guy...I think he's a couple of years off on the year of the engine...I picked it up as a leftover sometime in 1996...and didn't use it until 1998...when I had it installed on my 16' carolina skiff...talk about flying....that boat would move with that engine...on the sandpiper...it was a big slower because it was about a foot wider, heavier and had a keel...I think he was going to use it for flyfishing and tool off the stainless steel rails I made for it...that 30hp merc was great...I picked it up from Electra Marine...never saw a "sea pro" merc before but when I talked with my local dealer he said it was the commercial model...comparing it to other engines in its hp range, this was much larger...at least I remember it being that way...it also had the pull to start it manually as well as the electric start...which was always nice if the engine crapped out on you...

The boat was well made and sturdy...but like Squid said, he sold the company...you might get lucky and find another...if so, you won't regret picking it up...and for the price...you can't beat it...(I moved up from my Carolina skiff to the Sandpiper...world of difference!)....

Good luck in your search...

Dave
