    Default Tango Skiff 17 Stitch and Glue Motor Boat

    Long time lurker here and I finally have a project of my own to share. I've been building a Tango Skiff 17 stitch and glue motorboat and documenting it over at my blog Boat Build Project. The design is by Hank Bravo who sells plans for 12, 13, 14, 15 and 17-foot versions over at Tango Skiff. The extended transom makes for an interesting look which also serves a functional purpose by acting as trim tabs. I've learned a lot from the fine folks here and it was time to tackle a build of my own.

    Here's progress as of a month ago with more detail and pics available here - Sides Stitched on Tango Skiff




    Regards,

    Rob

    Cool, going for the center console on the '17?

    Yes, I think so. Even if it doesn't get remote steering out the gate, it provides an additional seat and makes for a great area to situate the battery. I was also thinking the area under the seat could be insulated and turned into a cooler.
