Just stumbled onto this forum...what a great idea!

I have a 19 foot Pembroke skiff...or at least that's what I think it is...that I'm going to slowly turn into something more than my workboat. Neat hull with a full length keel, fine entry and nice gentle tumblehome. Deck appears to be solid glass and completely sealed. I got the boat with a 30 tiller (as shown) but had sold the motor while the boat sat un used for a couple years due to a completely shot transom.

Now finally back out of the tall grass, I'd like to make this boat into a nice day boat for island exploring & camping with the GF and dogs. Does anyone know who built these boats? I'm trying to decide on the power & have no idea what it is rated for. The 30 pushed it fine with just me, but load it up with traps or a few people and it wasn't enough. Also, the 30 didn't seem heavy enough. When at rest at a dock or mooring, rainwater would pool at the bow.

I have a line on a 2006 ETEC 40 tiller which is about 250lbs. This motor is also easily converted from tiller to remote in case I want a console at some point. Not sure if this is enough power...or maybe the motor is too heavy?

Any imput would be greatly appreciated

Thanks for the replies! I love the look of this boat & leaning toward keeping it a tiller. All the seats need to be cut out and replaced as they are completely rotten, but the deck is rock solid.

Pretty neat skiff, sometimes I wish I just had a simple little boat, but we all know how that goes!

Did you ever get around to doing anything Towboat? Cool little skiff.

if you scroll down to Moose Island Marine in this link, it says they are the makers of this boat...
