Here is a little video to help you with the design of your next Skiff :)


Many of these ideas and concepts, take years of time on the water to develop. Some of them, really need to be taken into consideration at the time of build while others (like the size of the Poling Platform size) can be corrected "if" one is willing to spend the money to have one expanded and or have a new built by a company like FCF (Florida Coastal Fabrications ) on Pine Island Florida ;)

As I find more of these from both past shopping and present upgrade plans, I will post them here for others to also gather ideas from. If others also find cool ideas for your future Skiff or present one? Please feel free to drop those ideas and links into this same thread this as I work on getting another sub forum created for just this subject :cool:

And I still say, that few make a better and more comfortable (large) Polling Platform as stock equipment, than Beavertail does. And here is a great shot to show you just how much real estate you have, even on their smaller Skiffs like the Mosquito ;)

Now I have been other others and some that were a lot more expensive Skiffs. You feel like you are standing and trying to balance yourself on a postage stamp or tennis racket at times :(

Great shots above though, and would be easy enough to copy as a pattern for your Skiff by using this one and other pictures you can find on this link
