The board between points F should be 1170 mm (46") long, ends cut at 66 degrees (both versions).

Skiff Life - Fishing & Boating Articles, Classifieds, Photos and VideoFishing and Boat related topics focused on coastal waters. When Katie went off to college at the University of Maryland to play lacrosse from a small suburb of Syracuse, she never knew she would be meeting the man of her dreams.
Here are a few shots taken from the water of what seemed to me to be a classic small working skiff built from what looks like solid timber we sighted on the river Vilaine in Brittany while on holiday a few weeks ago. But I’m pretty sure the American models, some elegant, light and nicely made and some heavy workhorses, some called just skiff or maybe sharpie skiff, flat iron skiff or flattie skiff or a range of other names, must have developed from European craft like this one. Portugal had a lot of cultural influence on the eastern seaboard of the US, through the cod fishery, and I believe, is where some of our skiffs and dories came from. The sharpie origins debate usually goes North America, Europe, North America… repeat. Flat-bottomed boats could be found everywhere on the coasts of France in estuaries, sheltered waters, lakes et lagoons.

Another newly boat in the Boatbuilding Academy launch in December was an Iain Oughtred Auk built by Paul Braker and Joe Flynn.
Paul worked in IT until the economic situation made him look at what he really wanted to do – and he chose boat building. My thanks to Chris Perkins who sent me the shots, though I gather they were originally taken byAlec. Drawn by Iain Oughtred, the boat was designed for the Scottish Coastal Rowing Project, a scheme to encourage rowing racing for the people of Scotland. This 2011 30 Nautica Tender widebody was a chase boat for a Yacht and has been taken care of by her captain and crew.
It has good initial stability and, given the flare to the sides, it is also a dry boat even in a chop.
Trim is normally oak or Ash, though Honduras Mahogany can be substituted for an additional $300. Romans applied water wheel power to Egyptian pit sawing of planks, but those ideas came out of China via central Asia and the Middle East.

Piggly Wiggly is a 7ft 10in glued clinker design built in plywood, epoxy and mahogany, which  Paul will use as a tender for his current boat and to give he and his partner Sarah’s seven children something to mess about in.
The boat in the photo is the first to be built, but I gather a boat kit for Ullapool’s rowers has already been ordered!
Each time this stage is reached in a build I am amazed at how much time is absorbed removing material. 2012 38' Edgewater 388 Center Console powered by Triple 300 hp Yamaha engines with only 485 hours!.

Sharing mutual friends and a love for the game of lacrosse, plus houses right next to each other- this friendship evolved into much more.
I don’t know how closely these boats are related, but I think their construction is broadly similar. Visits to the Antipodes sharply enlightened eighteenth and early nineteenth century France. The friend had brought a supply of wine from far in the upper reaches of the Loire to La Roche Bernard on the Villaine via the Nantes Brest canal.
Work that will never be appreciated by anyone who has not got that particular T shirt but is immediately apparent if it is neglected.
Together for eight years, this couple decided to tie the knot in front of many family and friends at the Beak and Skiff Distillery in LaFayette, New York. From what I can gather it was for a challange and a flat skiff type craft was used, though some of the story may have been lost in translation and language difficulties.
The route to a respectable finish always lies in the preparation – a truism that can never be said often enough in my view. I believe that the Loire gets skinny pretty quickly so a flat bottomed craft would have been the way to go. Additionals include 5 life preservers, 3 anchors, emergency treatment kit, emergency kit with flares, air horns etc., fire extinguisher, aluminum push pole, and paddle.
