A Tolman Skiff is a stable fishing platform and is designed to perform well in nasty Alaskan waters.
After such a big mission on something with so much emotional attachment it is great to see you are fishing it hard with your kids. Whether you're researching a new boat, or are a seasoned Captain, you'll find The Hull Truth Boating & Fishing Message Forum contains a wealth of information from Boaters and Sportfishermen around the world.
And it is rugged and customizable and build-able by anyone with a modicum of wood working skills. Looks like your doing it right, and the blood on the decks, and smiles on everyone's faces is what it is all about.

Built from marine grade plywood, epoxy and fiberglass the boat can outlast it's owner with reasonable maintenance.
And for it's size you'll find that a Tolman Skiff is much lighter and will get better gas mileage than commercial equivalents.
The reserve buoyancy of the design means you can load this boat up with folks, bait, ice and catch, and remain safe.
