I can't seem to find a used console for less than $800.00 so I'm going to attempt my own build.
You can buy balsa or foam with a fiberglass coating on each side from a wholesale fiberglass boat supplier. About two years ago, I received a phone call from Andrew Hampson to discuss the prospects of building one of the tunnel skiffs that he had seen on my website.
I’ve been bouncing around about 3,ooo,ooo web sights trying to get ideas about a boat to build. 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.
After getting to know his needs and requirements over the course of a half-dozen 30-minute phone conversations, we discovered that he needed a different boat. Sometimes what a customer wants evolves into a totally different boat once their needs are all hashed out.

It begins with a moderate 7-degree deadrise at the transom and progress to around 35-degrees at the entry. One of these days I’m gonna pick your brain on how to build me a little 16 ‘ flat bottom net skiff with a center console! He wanted a boat that could also go well outside of Masonboro Inlet in the ocean safely carrying at least five adults and handle the adverse sea conditions. A particular design only comes about after personally getting to know a customer and what he or she wants out of this relationship that we’re entering. This progressive deadrise bottom has been proven in both large and small boats to be a very efficient and seaworthy running bottom, while maintaining a stable fishing platform while not on a plane. There is usually but not always a toast given by the builder and a few drinks taken by the witnesses that are present. He also wanted to get up into the shoaly backwaters and grass flats to target drum, speckled trout, flounder, etc.

The precise compromise that is every boat can only be narrowed down after getting to know somebody. The combination of this bottom with the aggressive sprayrail translates into a drier ride that planes easily and requires less fuel than many of the deep-V deadrise boats on the market.
Those deep-V boats that have flooded the market take three times as long to get on a plane, use far more fuel when running, and are not near as stable or comfortable while fishing.
