When the dust finally settles it will be an 18' SeaCraft that I have been slowly picking away at. I'm looking forward to that day.

Ha! All I am running right now, post DE life... :( Waiting for my new Suzuki 300 to show up... hope it makes it before the spring time...already on my second dealer, worrisome... down in Florida this week picking up toys for it, new leaning post/livewell... tried to find a new bracket, that was a nightmare I didnt plan for. Now just some grey paint... I wish I kept my Dusky 203, it was color matched to our HH40 back in the day. This is the same hull, just extended... Love Duskys, granted I am sure there are better boats out there by far, price point and my own fancy. Drive by factory daily when I am at our "school" down here.

Our little boat is a 21' Parker CC. It is used for bay fishing. There is a lot of places in Shinnecock Bay the 38' Duffy/ Flowers can't go.

Some day...
I’d say any seacraft in the 18-23’ range. The 21 contender is also a hell of a boat. Also always liked the look of the Jones brothers 20’. Wish I had the money/space for a mess around skiff.

Aluminum '73 17 ft starcraft holiday converted into a CC w/ a jack plate and 110 on it.

But when the smoke clears from this build I think it's time for a slightly bigger skiff, thinking a 22 or 23, something that has a shallow draft but enough freeboard to not be a liability going through the inlet and would boot with a pair of 115's or so, want 50 MPH minimum. Maybe a Pacific welded aluminum, maybe a custom glass hull, maybe I will gut some other hull and build to suit.
