    Default Seaford skiff plans?

    I'm really taken with the Seaford skiff currently shown in photos posted down in Misc. Boat related. Any help locating plans for this boat would be much appreciated.

    When the last river is dry
    When the last fish is caught
    Only then will Man realize that he cannot eat money.

    Mystic Seaport Ships Plans collections lists the following Seaford Skiff plans:

    Ketcham, Paul (builder)
    4 sheets: lines, construction, offsets, sail,

    Although I do not have the book here in front of me to be absoultely certian, I believe that most or all of these plans are discussed in the book 87 Boat Designs by Benjamin A.G. Fuller

    The Seaford Skiff pictured is the Ketcham built one. Mystic has the plans and built one several years ago which is now in the boat livery. Mystic made exact copies of Paul Ketcham's molds and patterns and had him visit numerous times to advise while they were building it.
