Re: A skiff design of my own
Dont know much about boat design but I have done a bit of recreational fishing in the inside passage on 18-20' skiffs. The first thing I thought was could use a little more up front, and then Dan posted his, that is exactly the type of look I was thinking. I've been out several mornings when the passage between bays was usually 4-foot or better swells and a high bow helps keep you dry.
But good on ya for getting into your own design, and it's a fine looking boat.
Also, honda is well supported up in that area and the lodges I've fish out of swear by them.
In fact, if you can saw a penciled line, apply glue, drive nails, and bring a modest measure of patience to the task, you can build and launch a smart and able craft in as few as 40 work hours. You need not be driven by lack of tools, materials, skills, or time to abandon in frustration a project you conceived in a spirit of pleasurable anticipation.
