Default Nicely done

But I would expect no less from Heber. Did you ever get to meet his brother Will while you were building her? He built my charterboat in 1983. They are great people.

every boater should start out in one of these. Nice - simple rig. If I had the space - I would build one of my own..

I'd Keep the 25 as well unless weight on the transom is an issue - which I doubt it is.

Thanks... I am waiting on winter to pass and can't wait to get it out this coming spring. I was looking at it in my back yard here in MD and was thinking it would be nice to find the time and weather to sneak a cruise up the Wye river! Feel free to shoot me an email to discuss the details!

I have put a warped vee bottom on mine. I am in the process of planking the sides and have also added a suttle flare foward for more of an open water running. Of course its a bit harder to build. I will use a small bulkhead foward at the floating frames with a platform just aft to store my anchor and some gear. I will shoot a mail later on. Thanks.

Put up a thread on this build!! People (me at least) would want to see her come together.

scratchnsaw that is very nice looking!!!! I watch Stacy Davis on Harkers build lots of skiffs with and without wells during the summers when I was young. He build a very nice 16-18 skiff for his son Victor back in the 70's, I always loved the look of that boat and wish I know were she is today. Victor still lives on the lsland and may need to ask him next time I am up there. Keep up the great work!!

But I plan on doing that over the winter, unless I get the free time after trout season. I launched it in April and dealt with the cold weather and winds and its a screamer with the engine that I used, a 90 Suzuki because I had it from another boat. It burns about two gallons on average for a days use that we do of fishing and clamming.
The layout is perfect, with more than enough storage for anything we like to carry to make the boat a beachcomer and even a weekend sleepover camper. The console seating forward is a comfortable two seater with cushions and the helm seat allows two more locations. This gives me a four person capacity all sitting down in open water running.

The lid to the console seat lifts up and allows another cooler to fit there nicely or just plain storage for camping gear and equipment. I carry my tackle box under the helm seat with the fish cooler behind on deck. I use the rubberized non-slip protective material under those two pieces, and nothing moves. Then I just lift out and clean the entire deck with a simple mop.
Wow...your boat looks great. I haven't gotten much use with my boat yet. Its been really busy at work and the weather here as not been the best. I'm hoping to get her out soon. Please post more pics she looks fantastic. I bet she flies with that 90!

There is little wake left and gets right up on plane in a quinstant. I added a small skeg about one inch thick by 1 1/4" wide which improved handling in higher speeds and quartering seas and hard turns. It handles now like a dream.
Wow! 52 MPH is flying! Nice to know you can get up and run if needed. Also if you are ever loaded a bit on the heavy side you should have the power to keep her on top and pushing.

Looks like a good winter project. Is she planked with boards or plywood?
