This is my 18’ flat-bottomed skiff. Hull was constructed from marine-grade plywood, with the frames, decking, gunnels, & trim all being constructed from Honduran Mahogany. Worked on it for a little over a year and yes, it does float.

That is beautiful man. I am no expert on boats and and i have even less knowledge on boat building, but i’ve seen a lot at my cottage. Up here in Ontario the Muskokas are full of antique and wooden boats. This one would fit in perfectly. Your color scheme is great. the wood and white on the inside pop.

This should draw a lot of attention online and on the water. Nice work.

Schweeeet! Great job. I’ve become more interested in wooden vessels lately. At least since getting an old cedar strip canoe from a neighbor. Yours is most prettified.

You have a right to be proud of this one.

Looks great, are their plans some place? Wooden boats interest me, but all I ever see are sail boats, which don’t really interest me.

Reminds me of a oyster boat as I use to live in north Florida. Very cool
