A small wooden skiff. V bottom, 15’ x 4’. A fast little rower and a right down respectable sailer. I have since added a centerboard and rudder and a small sprit rig. I’ve had many a fun outing in this little boat. It actually is wood underneath all the paint. It is made from BS1088 meranti plywood and fiberglass and epoxy covered. It has doug fir gnwales and trim around the thwarts/box seating/air chambers. All 316 stainless hardware that I polished. Bronze fasteners, what few of them there are. I hope to get started on another, more involved build of a larger skiff soon or maybe an Adirondak Guideboat.
