Bryan.. those are some nice boats buddy..where did you get the plans for those? I had a 16' skiff like those..such a practical little striper boat..no bullshit on it just a tiller motor,a 6 gallon gas tank, and a livewell..mine was the famous "Morning Wood".. the people at my yacht club loved that name.. nope
Nick on here (Bassin) just had a 20ft lady bug built last year with a dog house on it..he clams with it and is one of the pogie magicians in duxbury..perfect boat for that..do you build a couple a year at your house and sell them or just at the school? really rough job you got there buddy!

El Mar- Great project to complete with your students! Hats off to you! Thanks for posting the photos. I like the boat with the more traditional bow and sheer, but the other must have practical uses such as pushing a mooring barge or something. I bet the kids really love your class! :D

Back when i was fishing back east i drug for starfish every winter, i wore out a few boats doing it and the last one i had was this 20x8 plywood skiff, the guy that built it(RIP Richie)was a ironworker and he didn't scimp on fastners when he put it together, i fiberglassed the gunnel caps with 2 layups of mat and woven roving so it was a very stiff boat. The dredge beat the shit out of it but it held up well. I had a A frame mast on it with a 5hp briggs with a capstan head tucked under the foredeck to haul the dredge and unload the barrels of starfish at my dock with. I loved doing it all winter, nobody out there to bother me just make my tows, haul back, dump on deck, set back, do it again, i miss it!! Before anyone asks the starfish were used for biology classes in schools and also dried for sale to tourist trap shell shops.

I built that bowpicker behind the skiff from a 28' luhrs hull i bought from some vietcong guys, they had put a new 41 volvo diesel in it then never used it.

Bryan.. my buddy just downloaded the plans for the 15'8" brockway that he wants to build.. regarding the pieces of plywood for the hull.how do you set those up to shape them and how long do they need to set before they can be used? do you have any more pics of that boat being built?

Thanks I actually meant the plywood for the hull itself.. How do you get the plywood to bend?
