      Hello John and all.... the sea bright skiff pics look great... i have
      the same pics and articles from years ago, almost built tthe happy
      clam many moons ago... back in the early 50"s. iI remember as a boy
      of that type of skiff being launched and retrieved through the surf
      on he ocean with many pounds of fish that were caught in the pound
      nets off-shore. the boats were pulled up on the beach on eooden
      tracks or rollers, and pulled by horses. later with tractors well
      into the 50"s here. the sea-bright model came in several sizes and
      models, a close cousin to the "pound boats" tge box garboard design
      protected the prop and rudder, a rather good design, and the atkins
      designed many vessels patterened after the sea- bright model. i guess
      the name comes from a small town about 5 0r so miles from here, on
      the ocean, called SEAS BRIGHT. N.J. it was a popular local boat for
      work and later pleasure. A great seaworthy type and easily driven
      with low horsepower.... rich_led.....
