This is how the boat looked when we first purchased it. Its a 14 foot fiberglass v-hull w/ center console and 25 horse evinrude. Prior to purchasing we negotiated a deal that allowed us to remove the console and motor. A boat this size has no use for a console and the motor was junk because it had been submerged and over-heated. Basically we had a blank canvas after all was removed. On the plus side, the transom had already been rebuilt and was strong enough to hold that 25 horse power motor. We will only be running a 9.9 yamaha four stroke when it is finished.
Update 12/19/15: the skiff is finally done. It’s running a 25 horse evinrude 2 stroke. Top speed 22 mph. Drafts about 8″ underway poles in about 5″. Total cost for the build was approximately $1500. Please leave me some feedback below and if you have any questions do not hesitate to ask.
old ‘rude 25! BYE BYE! this thing would fly with that motor,
GUTTED! heres the boat after everything was a removed
We eyed the stringers… They aren’t completely level, but we didn’t know how else to do it.
Cutting out the old rotted bow cover. The boat is going to be completely decked over so theres no need for it anyways.
When our skiff is completed it will look something like this… Hopefully! Source: http://boatstore.floridasportsman.com/i/o/f/1313170612.jpg
