- Nov 2, 2009I was going to suggest
a fishermans skiff but it is only a 12 footer nice little boat though I have 2 freinds that built them use them to fish the lakes around here . I shortened a short clam skiff ( 14 feet I took it off the back end ) recently just have to get her in the water and see what she does . just a few random thoughts :)On Mon, Nov 2, 2009 at 2:19 PM, Harry James <welshman@...> wrote:
Shivaree has the looks but I think it is to much boat. If I remember
correctly Phil's had a 50 HP on it when I saw it at the memorial. Hope
definitely has the looks also and is much smaller.
