Looking to build a skiff!

Post by Madmooner on Sat Sep 19, 2015 11:08 am

Somehow I've got it in my head I need to build a smallish skiff.

I live in the PNW on the Puget Sound. While I have a bigger boat that I enjoy, I'd love to have a small snd simple tiller steer skiff to enjoy.

It needs to be able to handle a little chop, enough gunnel height to cart around my 2 year old, light enough to be able to beach. Stable to walk around and haul crab pots and run a down rigger off of.

I'm thinking 16'-18' , 30-40hp tiller outboard. Decent size front casting deck and a small deck in back on which to sit with a couple hatches. Front deck would carry fuel and battery under it in separate compartments. Wide open deck in between. Self draining floor with foam under the sole.

What ya think?

The boat you describe is basically my old fs17 that I built while at my former company.

I plan to put out my own skiff design of similar size soon, if you can hold off on starting the build I can give you a great deal on plans/materials if you build the first one.

I will pm you about it.
