    Default Small lobster/downeast skiff hull

    Hello I am looking to build a small lobsterskiff with a downeast hull. I love the Jericho Bay skiff but I am looking to do a few changes and was wondering if any builders can approve or steer me in a different direction. 1st I am on long island and am a fan of a full transom so a 20" motor is a must, and lastly I am looking for that New England bass boat look and a small weather break for a porto-potty for the girls. I am a huge fan of the BHM25 Launch. That would be a small cuddy windshield backed up to a helm pod. Any answers from you on this long winded question. Thanks all, Rob

    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.

    There's the inboard-powered Mason Marine Designs Cape Isand 27, which can be built with cuddy or full lobster-boat wheelhouse. If you would rather a smaller, outboard version, we can probably come to an agreement to modify the plans.





    Hope for the best, but plan for the worst.

    Do you offer any smaller hulls?

    I built the Jericho bay with a transom to fit the 20" (long shaft outboard). Simple change and I have been happy with the result. I wouldn't rule out the Jericho if that was one of your concerns. Easily changed.

    I should have added that your requirement for a port a potty or cuddy do rule out the Jericho Bay. Jericho is a much smaller boat than some of these others that have been suggested.

    Rciminieri, pretty much all my designs have been custom one-offs that have not evolved as a series of similar-but-different-length hulls, so no, I do not have a ready-for-sale design of the Cape Island 27 in a smaller form. However, I have had a few inquiries about modifying the hull for a smaller, outboard version, and I am not opposed to the idea. If you would like to discuss the idea, please contact me either by PM or at mmason1@eastlink.ca.

    Dang. You should get a job doing that.
    Seriously, this is nice looking, Yo. Even I want a powerboat like this...

    Peace,
