A close friend of mine had this old 16 foot wood skiff and asked if could restore it for his grandson. His grandson is an avid duck and goose hunter. This skiff will be perfect for this. I checked the skiff out and it was well built and worth the material and labor for…
This afternoon we lifted the skiff and set her on the trailer. Then, we mounted the 25hp Honda 4-stroke outboard.
Today we Linseed oiled all the raw plywood and frames! She is finished!!! Tomorrow we will put her on the trailer. Then I will post a few more photos.

Today I masked off the fore deck and aft bench seats and painted them TotalBoat off-white. Then I banded the center bench seats with fiberglass for strength. Tomorrow I will mask off the fore deck and aft bench seats and paint the center areas with TotalBoat non-skid beige.
