Penny for your thoughts deep drop - I was literally thought it'd be a great creekin' boat at my boat club and was more than half tempted to go pick her up...

I looked at a yellow hulled 21' that was laid up by Five Islands a few years back in the Seaway mold. The glass work / layup was , " less than desirable". I also looked at a 35' laid up in the old Bruno mold and same thing. Thats why I wanted to know if others could chime in here? I would think on an open skiff like this it may not be an issue but idk?

I really this skiff. She'd look great towed behind my BHM. With her flat bottom, she would be great for running to shore while island hopping. If I could find a light loaded westbound truck, I'd buy her in a heartbeat.
