  • POWER SKIFF 16 was designed for fishing, crabbing, working or just plain messing about. This design is a traditional power boat in plywood and epoxy materials. She has a flat aft run for planning speeds. She is rugged construction. A solid lumber sheerstrake adds to her appearance and strength. Her hull is glue and screw construction using 1/2" plywood coated in epoxy for years of use. A more traditional paint finish is possible for a serviceable finish as a working skiff. Build her and you will enjoy many hours of on the water. Plans include: materials, lines, construction. A full size frame plane is available.

    Estimated cost for quality construction materials (not including power) is $3000. This cost includes a high level of outfit and finish you can be proud of after putting the effort into building this fine boat.
