    To bad they don’t have some more pictures,... I’m sort of intrigued with her.

    I wonder if she really does have a rolled garboard keel.

    still waiting for more photos from the seller,
    but he sent a bit more info..:

    Hello --

    The boat was built for a friend of mine around 1980. The builder was a man named Ferman Shaw, who also built duck boats and garveys. My friend used the boat for a few years, then put it in the woods, where it sat for a long time. I rebuilt the boat's topsides -- deck, cabin, seats, floor, etc. This took years, while I was working on other boats. I did all the work with hand tools, no power.


    I have other sailing and rowing boats and can't give this one the care it needs. I've only sailed it once.


    I'll send more photos.


    Seabrights were 19th century skiffs used on the Jersey shore for fishing. The flat bottom allows them to be beached. The pure rowing skiffs have less beam.


    I also have a Seagull outboard motor, which came with the boat and which I'll sell if anyone wants it.

    I saw that boat listed some time ago, I think, or else maybe it was posted here? A lot more pics, but it was in a shed, pretty hard to get a complete picture. I'd love to see it from behind, and the cockpit. Very intriguing, in any case. Could be a very cool trailer sailer with a few ports and a hatch
