Homemade Black Polling skiff. In search of photos.





A while back ago, there was a black polling skiff posted on here. It was home made. I am looking for that thread. Is it still hear or, does anyone know who built it?

Twitch,

Don't know about the black boat but here is a great 18' Tech. polling skiff you can build yourself. It's a stitch and glue boat...easy to build as the plans and tech. support are the best in the industry. You can buy just the plans, buy a precut marine plywood kit, and an epoxy/fiberglass kit, or any of the supplies individually.

http://www.bateau.com/studyplans/FS1....htm?prod=FS18


The support forum, www.bateau.com has all the help you could ever ask for and the "How to and Toutorials" will teach you everything you need to know about S&G building. Great boat designs, great service, great prices, and great people IMHO.

Frank

P.S. We don't call these boats homemade, we call them "Custom Built"...LOL

Yes, that is one of the oneís I was thinking about building. I have not picked an exact plan yet because, I want to make sure I look around really good before I go with one. Most of the ones I have seen are very narrow and, I was looking for something with a little more beam. I am guessing you can modify it how ever you want to. Thanks for the info!



Back some time ago, there was another boat that was floating around here that was a pickle fork design that you could order plans for. Anyone know where that website is? I havenít been able to find it either.

Twitch,

http://www.bateau.com/products.php?cat=17

Check out the "Texas sled" it's a Hickman sea sled variation. Semi twin hull.

As for a "little wider" the "Phantom 15, 16, 18, and 22' are real shallow runners. This link only shows the PH 18 but the others are another page.

http://www.bateau.com/categories.php?cat=29

And here's a Blog of one of the FS-18 builds. Very good pics and info here.

And, some pics.
Top to bottom: the "Flats Skif" FS-18, the "Texas Sled" TX-18 (3), and the "Phantom" PH-18.
The beauty of these "homemade" composite (Fiberglass, marine ply or foam core, fiberglass sandwich) boats is cost, lightweight, requireing a lot less hp. waterproof epoxy resins, unlike "plastic" boat poly.

Twitch,

Check out this fs-18 on this site(it might be on bateau's site also). I don't know the bottom width at the transom, but it looks really narrow.
http://www.inshore-fishing.com/forum...howtopic=18518


My black boat has a bottom width of 52" at the transom. After fishing it and some other smaller skiffs I wouldn't go less than 48" at the bottom of the transom(not beam) if you plan to have three people in the boat.

But I'd like to have a smaller narrow boat like the fs-18 at times.

Unless you're joking you might want to take your Clubfoot out of your mouth.
