I am looking for a skiff about 18 feet that I can tow with my Subaru AWD wagon. I'm thinking aluminum with a 25-35 HP engine so it is light enough for my car to haul up a slippery ramp. Does a skiff that has the lines of a Pointer 18 or similar in aluminum exist, Thanks Tangle

you might want to check out Naden boats, out of Canada. Neat looking aluminum boats.

Naden boats

I took a look and they do look good but their largest boat is 16 ft. I have a 16 ft skiff that is just too small for my uses. Two more feet will make for a much wider deeper boat. I'm shooting for about 18' an aluminum Pointer 18

18' Lund Alaskan? While not a "downeast style" it can be configured several ways and is pushed with relatively moderate power. If I remember correctly it can be had with a center console, side console or tiller. Flat floor, etc.
