Thought I would share this with anyone that may have ever shown an interest in this style skiff. I have been looking for about 3 or 4 years for a Harkers Island style juniper cross planked skiff without the motor well in the 16ft to 17ft range. Found a fair amount of well boats, plywood boats, rotten boats, and undersized boats but nothing like the boat we grew up fishing on. Becoming discouraged, I decided to search on the internet for a skiff builder and came across a man that is teaching school aged children the skill and art of classic Carolina boat building. I was able to get in contact with him and we negotiated a rough cost and budget for the build.
Arriving at his home in NC he took my son and I on a local tour of some of the boats he built including a sharpie sailboat. Again, My intention of this thread is to share an art and skill that is dissapearing and hope that my children will enjoy fishing on a juniper skiff just like my father did and I did.
True to the plans the Jersey Speed Skiff is drawn up to use stations to form the hull and sides, discarded on completion. Anyone with their own images of a Skiff please email us if you’re happy to share some pictures with us! This iconic racing boat was originally designed by George Crouch in 1924 and went on to win the 1924 and 1925 APBA Gold Cup. It has been said that the 16 foot Gar Wood speedster is, pound for pound, the most valuable classic production speed boat in the world.
There are some 15 frames, 2 keels, twin hatch assembly, vertical cleats, gas tank fixing, drivers bench seat, breast hook, front and rear stems with knees etc.

Wanted to find something similar to the skiff that my father grew up fishing on and I also grew up fishing on in the Swansboro, NC area. Thought I might be able to build one so I searched and searched for plans but again nothing that really was a true Harkers Island style skiff with the classic lines I was looking for.
He chuckled and said that he and his father stopped building them in the late 70's when fiberglass was becoming more popular.
I explained that I wanted a boat similar to the boat I grew up fishing on with a few changes for additional safety and asthetics. When I was interviewing him for the build I did some research and the one thing that really stood out was that he is really involved with the community and trying to pass along the Down East boat building skills to the local children.
My grandfather had the skiff made by a local boat builder back in the 50's or 60's at a place called Dudleys in Swansboro.


In my searching I also learned that the men that build these boat don't use plans to build them. Did another google search of his name and came up with a few more pictures of skiffs he had recently built and decided to try and contact him for a build.
With that conversation I knew this was the man to go with and drove with my son from Maryland to NC to meet him and discuss further details of the build and get him a deposit to start.
He learned boatbuilding 40 years or so ago from his father Chancellor and Uncle Julian Guthrie from Harkers Island. We custom finish many Down East hulls such as Duffy, Calvin Beal, WesMac, Northern Bay, BHM and Repco from Maine. Skiff can connect to other Wooden Railway vehicles, train engines or tenders (sold separately) with magnet connectors. Perfect for Thomas & Friends™ Wooden Railway train sets (sold separately and subject to availability)! If order is shipped to more than one address, offer applies to first "ship-to" address only.
