For sale
Freshly rebuilt and repowered with 25 HP Yamaha 4 stroke engine currently with 2 hours on the clock.
She has come a long way. This project was a stepping stone for me toward the next, larger boat project.
Complete documentation of rebuild here:

and ready to go.

I am still tweaking some things but for sale while summer is still here.
Come with universal untitled trailer. :)
Located on Nantucket Island. I can assist with delivery to the Ferry here. They can tow on and then off again for you in Hyannis on Cape Cod

Not quite break even price for me is pretty firm.

Thanks. It was a great learning experience and taught me how many ways there are to do one thing when working with fiberglass.

cruise speed? such a great documented build!
I needed to get a new propeller. The 25 was overpropped according to my Yamaha guru. Notbing ever easy. No usable numbers yet. I am in Downeast Maine for the week. The replacement prop is ordered so the fix will happen when I get home.
I will report back then

Finally went for a cruise to get some speed info. Had to get a smaller prop. The factory prop was too much but now all is well.
Two people with gear for a beach day. I only did one direction into the wind but it was at slack tide in the harbor.
Idle 5 knots
Up on plane at 3800 -4000 rpm 15knots
Cruise at 5000-5300 18-20 knots
WOT just occasionally touching the rev limiter at 6100 22 knots.

Goes pretty good and we are having fun with this little skiff.

@xbskt did you splash the boat to mark the waterline, or just wing it and get lucky for the bottom paint
I splashed it on a FAC morning loaded down with all the gear that would live onboard during the summer. I took that line and raised it a 1/2" inch to be sure bottom paint was just above the water.
I used a sharpie tic about eight places around the boat. Made taping fairly straightforward.
Cheated and took a quick blast around the harbor too. I knew right away I had an issue with the prop.
All fixed now.

NEW YEARS bump.
Currently winterized and in covered storage.
I can deliver off the island for the price of my boat ticket for truck and trailer.
I can also just help coordinate tow on - tow off by the Steamship Authority.
Price still firm.
$12,500
Thanks for looking
