    Hey El Mar,

    Any word on how the revised skiff design works underway?

    By the way, thanks for your encouragement and information a few years ago, I ended up building the Brockway type skiff in the link below!

    Thanks,

    Your boat looks good. How does she perform compared to the flat boat skiff you usually build? Have you considered putting a level sole or are you concerned with weight? Thanks
