- Jul 19, 2006I have no idea of what the applicable taxes, customs, and import duties
would be for Nicaragua, but my plywood was made from African trees by
Israelis and then imported to Massachusetts and shipped to me in Indiana.
Boulter Plywood was the low price (delivered), the wood is beautiful, and
they were easy to work with. http://www.boulterplywood.com/
Maybe you can get plywood?? (or maybe you've already checked this out)

Thanks for the replies. SkiffAmerica looks neat, but as you say, would
be too heavy in plank on frame. For lack of a suitable Atkins design,
the leading candidates thus far are (1) Bolger's 21' Fishermans Launch
(2) Gardner's 18' Down East Workboat and (3) Gardner's 20' 3" Semi-V
Garvey. Both Gardner designs are in the book More Building Classic
Small Craft. The garvey is attractive because of the ability to nose
up on a shallow bank and let the "cargo" step out onto dry land
without getting their feet wet. And Culler's 18' Fast Outboard is
still in the running.
Rob, why don't you start up a Gardner Yahoo Forum? I have thought
about the idea, but I just don't have the bandwidth down here to do a
good job of monitoring. He has a lot of suitable semi-dory skiffs in
his books, but I just don't want another flat-bottomed boat. I have
the 15 Foot Flattie Skiff half done. (To use a 5 HP motor I have
available.) Maybe my problem is that I have too many motors!

something designed for it. Culler or Atkin, probably. MIght also look
through the Gardner books. I seem to remember a semi-dory power skiff
that might work. Can't remember whether it was in Classic Small Craft
or the Dory Book.
