Lot of excitement about the latest build. This is the Hunter Skiff based on sea skiffs or lumber yard skiffs. Dimensions are 16' X 6'. Hull sides are 24" with the transom cut for a 20" shaft motor. This is going to be a top quality build for a very experienced fisherman who knows a lot about boats. Kim has been very specific in some of the things he wants in the boat. I've built several wood composite kayaks for him already. The plan is for Kim to work with me on as many weekends as he can. This will give him a new perspective on what it takes to build a wood composite boat, care and upkeep, and the satisfaction of actually working on his new boat. There is a link to the build album at the right. I'll add to it as we go along.

The current project is a 19' X 22" marathon kayak built specifically for long distances at speed. Actually an ultra-marathon boat since the ultimate race for this boat will be the 262 mile Texas Water Safari that starts in San Marcos, Tx., goes down the full length of the San Marcos River, a good portion of the Guadalupe River, and 8 miles across the bay to end at Sea Drift. I will add more to this article when I get the time. I'll also start a build album to the right.
