Default Eastern Sea Skiff

Ned,
Sorry for the delay on the photos I promised. I have been away from home and just came across an external hard drive that I did not know I had with me in Florida. On it I found a few photos of my Eastern Sea Skiff. I guess these will be out of sequence as you work your way down the Jersey shore but here they are. Well, I think "here they are" as I have not succeeded in posting them yet.

throwback2,
No, that is just an illusion that the photo creates. The transom is made of teak planks. The dark lines are the polysulfide caulk that is placed in the seams where the plank edges meet.
Very much the way teak decks are done. See the short after deck ( teak) in the same photo where the flag holder and vents are located. Same technique as is seen there.

Different Drummer, ... Thank you so much. She is exactly like the Eastern that I remember from the early ‘70’s. Good looking boats, but they are just a bit different with that Aisan touch.
I will certainly add these to my collection if you don’t mind

I can remember as a child growing up in Brick nj, there was a builder named Paradise Skiffs on Rt 70 by the twin bridges. My buddys dad worked there part time putting together small skiffs that were delivered as kits. Perhaps you know of them.

Thank you for commenting. I touched on what I know of paradise skiffs back on post #284 on page 15.

I would be interested in anything you know of them, or hearing any stories you know of them.
I have also heard they sold them as sort of ‘kit boats’. They built the hulls and the owners finished them. Nice looking skiffs.
