I have seen this boat particular boat advertised all over- they just dropped the price on it to 12,000. Is anyone familiar with Pickerell's designs? The pictures are all of it in the water- I'm wondering if anyone knows what type of hulls he designs.

Thanks,
Michael

I know that they are F/G over Plywood. Many commercial fisherman used to use them in the bays around Long Island, N.Y. Hard chine, made on Long Island, I can't remember where. Certainly suitable for inshore uses.

I had a 20 ft. Pickerell Garvey that I used to dig out of. Basically a flat bottom design that was stable and fast for the inshore bays. It was fiberglass over ply construction. It was a good boat but I am not sure of the longevity of the hull based on construction and care, you would need to take a good look at it just with any hull.

I have owned the 32ft model for 10 years and love the boat. From the looks, the 26 is a scaled down version (or the 32 was made after).
I can only address the 32 that I own and it is a tank. Glass over plywood and if you are serious, have the boat pulled and go over w/ a moisture meter. I run a shop vac into the bilge to collect all water as the inside is bare plywood except for the fwd V berth.
Mine is a super stable boat and will drift better than any boat I have encountered.
