Re: [bolger] Plans arrived!
- Hey good for you! Yes that is a fast turnaround for plans! I have looked at the 18' workskiff a couple of times.
As I recall it's a flat bottom boat and here on the Puget Sound you want a bit of Vee to the bottom so it doesn't pound to bad. For the kind of pooping around I will be doing I still think the Fiddler II would be a fun boat. Only draw back the flat bottom. Hmmm add a cutwater keel under her so she is more like a MT.
Yes I have been looking at the drawings of the Fiddler II again! I need a boat for this next summer!
The only drawback to the Fiddler II I can see is the lack of aft deck space. So I would have a place to put the dogs so they are not under foot when you are cooking.
Blessings to all

I am looking forward to building and fishing/clamming from the skiff.
Plenty of room for 3 anglers, and with such close proximity to
Narragansett Bay, Boston Harbor, and the cape. I can already
anticipate the bass, fluke, flounder, and bluefish filling our plates.
