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...

However, those are pretty neat...hmm

not for me, although I contemplated something to tool around in when the wife wanted to go to the beach, or when i want to go bounce off the rocks striper fishing. but i know better then to have two . i think.

Just looked neat, and there advertizment is "inexpensive". Although compared to what , a biplane?

I think I'd choose a 22 gm with an outboard , for me. But I thought they were cool. I wonder what there idea of inexpensive is? Check out there add in salt water mag. That's how they advertise the boat.

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:confused:

If your heart is set on a Seabright there are still one or two builders down in NJ that build them. Carolina Skiffs are ugly-ass but if you work in shallow water they are tough boats to beat. Another boat to look at with the inverted v tunnel is a "rescue minor" The guy who designed it (since dead) used to have a video of him running the boat in 6" of water

anything special and not common
Seabright

The Seabright Skiff is/was a dream of a fellow from Indiana .He is a physician and lover of things marine. I helped him source engines, fiberglass guy ,interior designs and OEM parts for a whle in my neck of the woods [Panhandle ,Fl, Redneck Riviera]. While it is an intriguing concept , its VERY "boutique" and that kind of dream is usually fleeting . 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 .

Rob White,, That was the name I was trying to remember, I met his son in Carrabelle when I was down there about 11 years ago. I saw their boat on a trailer.
