Very nice looking.
Again, the dead-rise concerns me for a boat claimed to float in 6".
Work is still in progress, here is a current pic from this Sat.

There has been a lot said about this skiff some true and some not so true, but with that said. The computer models showed it floating at 5.99 inches with full fuel and rigging, no people on board. There was a complete weight study to confirm balance. This skiffs hull, decks, stringers and hatches come in at 400 hundred pounds, this does change the way the boat floats and handles.

Because of the weight, we had to make a number of changes to the hull design, standard practices did not apply, so we came up with some unique features.
We will release theses hull features next week.

No this is not an illusion, it has camber.

Side consoles do open the pit, but the battery and rigging weight throw off the balance,
most will put a cooler or box in any way.

If we get enough requests I guess we will have to design one.

Something I noticed, that I really like, and certainly shows thought, are the descending rod tubes. That will make fitting multiple rods much easier without reeling the handle on one this way, and turning one that way, just to get them all to fit.

Please make 2" rod tubes a standard though, I have broken too many guides on my standards.

There are larger tubes going aft on each side.

We will give you what ever tubes you spec.
