Thanks guys! Its just under 16 feet. The console is version #3. It took a while to get the console just right I built two more conventional looking consoles but they just seemed to big and bulky took up a lot of room. The idea came from the old wooden lobster traps I saw one on end on the side of the road one day and that's how I came up with the idea. You cant stand and drive in it I would say its more of a hunch and drive while docking sort of thing. I am new to the forum thing and will get more pictures up when I figure out how to do it.

Very sweet lines and well built. Looks easily driven. I'm sure we'd all welcome some performance numbers.

20hp Honda runs in the mid to low 20's not a fast boat but you can get some where. Hull only weight is 420lbs. I am going to try some different props see what kid of numbers i Can get. F/V not sure who Ohara is?

Are you the builder? I'm looking for a 14' skiff for w/o console that could also be rowed. You can PM me if you like.

I did build it but am not a pro and do not produce the boat the plans are from wooden boat. I used full length clear western red cedar and all west system epoxy thru out.

I had 6 gallons of epoxy and 11 tubes of six10. I got all of it at cost so I don't really know what real prices are for it. Mid 20s isn't a bad speed to watch the world go by at.

I believe it's a Joel white design and jimmy Steele built the one they pulled the lines off of.

I could be wrong as well. So many boats its hard to keep them all straight.
