My good buddy, Maddog, and myself were looking into building us a skiff this year when we came across a deal we couldn't pass up. It is still somewhat of a project, seeing as how it is in the "Some Assembly Required" stage:) .

It is a brand new 15' FlatsMaster Poling Skiff hull, new gelcoat, new deck resin paint and came with a brand new Sportsman galvanized trailer (never been wet), console, leaning post, gauge panel, steering wheel and cable, rope insert rub rail, plastic hatch covers, running lights AND 40hp Yamaha with 20" shaft, 4 blade stainless prop, power tilt/trim with VERY LOW hours on the motor.

Got the whole lot for $1500!:dance:

We've gotta get a few things to finish it out, (which will probably take us the rest of the summer with our schedules the way they are) like a jackplate, Shallowblaster, electrical panel, etc., but she'll be SWEET when she's done!!

Intertesting... something don't sound right (an old saying comes to mind) but then again I don't know the full story. Congrats!

LOL at InfamousJ.....nope, it's not stolen! Buddy got it as a project for himself but got to the point where he was sick of working on it and found himself another rig that's ready to fish. Just wanted his money back for the trailer and the gelcoat/paint work on this one. He got the motor from another buddy of his who bought it new and no longer had a use for it so gave it to him for "their" new fishin skiff!

Believe me, with my position at work, I am VERY cautious about this type of stuff, but I figured it wouldn't take long for someone to bring it up:wink:

Boat

Funny how small the neighborhood is, I remember going to pick this boat up.
I did not think I would see it on this site this soon. Nice boat, great deal, and his story is correct. This boat is the original proto-type for a production boat. It should run anywhere you want to go.

Be Cool

We have been working on this one for a while and finally decided to pull the trigger, hopefully by the end of the summer we will be stalking reds in the shallows on one 2cool skiff.

Very nice

I'll be down there for the weekend, maybe i'll get to see it.
Now that I know who Triple F is maybe I can find out why it's Triple F and not the "Pine Post Boiler".
