    Default Skiff build completed

    My son (35) and I just completed a one year project, building a wooden skiff, the traditional way. All lumber came from local mills. We seasoned and plained it ourselves. It is our first build. We started Aug 2018 and are wetting her out now, planning to launch Sunday. We are very satisfied and best of all, it brought us closed together, like never before. Aug2019.jpg

    There are two kinds of boaters: those who have run aground, and those who lie about it.

    Sauzedde, associated with TotalBoat, produced a YouTube video series (30 - 1/2 hr videos) that walk you thru building one the traditional way. Did our best to follow that. Created our own model and pulled dimensions off that to create plans. I needed all that documentation for the State of NH to issue HIN.

    Very nice, I think you'll find that spray rail quite functional.
