Date: Wednesday, August 29, 2012, 7:36 PMI recently finished building the Atkin "Sprite" flat bottom skiff. It was quite a project. I have built a couple of cedar strip canoes but this was a bigger challenge and more sense of accomplishment. It is all assembled with epoxy, no metal fastenings, and coated inside and out with West System epoxy. I am using a "53 6 hp Lauson 4 cycle, air cooled outboard that really moves it along.

Date: Wednesday, August 29, 2012, 3:00 PMHi,
Anyone built this design or currently building it? I have been reviewing the huge number of skiff designs available, and this is one that has caught my eye. I like the lines, the flared bow, and I am not in a hurry; 8-12mph would be just fine for pottering around and fishing. I have an older (2 Stroke) short shaft Merc 7.5 that looks like it mught be a good match for this hull.
