I built this skiff in 2007 and used it for a while on Lake Lanier but the big boat’s waves made it rough to navigate.

so I sold it. It’s from a Bear mountain boats plan.

There is something about wooden boats that is so appealing to the eye, gives such a sense of comfort, her lines, those sweeping longitudinal curves from bow to stern where only wood can capture it…...perfectly.

She might be small, but she’s a beauty.

Nice work.

Dana, Thats a fantastic boat! I’m also in Gainesville, but not fortunate enough to live on the lake. Do you build boats for a living or just for fun?

Nice work!

You did a great job. My did always talked about building boats as a Chips in the Coast Guard during WWII. Your project reminded me of those talks. I don’t think he (88 this year), or even I am up to this type of project.

Thanks for the walk down memory lane. I need to make a phone call.

Very nice looking skiff – you did a great job. Love the wood – that’s what a boat is supposed to look like (at least to an old fart like me), wood not fiberglass or some other manmade material.

Too bad that the wakes of the bigger boats ruined your fun with your handmade boat – that really sucks!
