Robert, last you need is another boat LOL
2007/2008 I owned a HH40 with my Dad, a General Marine 26 with a Dusky 20... jesus christ what a freaking pain in the ass and still recovering from the debt associated from those years...
Fellas, Thanks for the link and heads up.We currently use a Kelsey built 18(kby18).Its a Brockway style flat bottom plywood skiff.Initially this boat seemed like an ideal replacement for our aging skiff/outboard.We currently use the skiff to the tune of 600-800 hiurs per year.Over the years I have repeatedly researched shallow draft straight inboards as they would offer ideal longevity as well as fuel economy.From a purchase stand point it would be hard to beat a carolina skiff/outboard.However I would rather kill myself than look at something that FUGLY in my yard.Which brings me to this my son and I even have Atkins plans in our possession.It would have been great to get this boat already built!But when I attempt to contact the company with questions nothing.. An answering service takes my message and no return calls.I would be extremely cautious with this organization! Should anybody have any leads or suggestions as to alternatives please post or pm me..Thanks Bob
......... A fellow named Rob White [wooden boat builder and great writer /naturalist] built one in plywood and it was an amazing boat . Its still around , and being used by his decendants . I see it going to Dog Island Fl. sometimes with his grand kids on board .
Just thought I'd add some history to this thread .
