Fast Skiff

 Apologies for the poor quality photo of this fast two person skiff, which I'm pretty sure had sliding seats and well as outriggers.

 I've been pondering building a similar fast and lightweight skiff as an alternative to Gato Negro. I really like Ken Basset designed Firefly and closer to home Paul Fisher has a nice two seat Thames skiff which might be the boat above. 

I've got the plans for Dave Gentry's Ruth which is a lovely looking boat built very lightweight using skin on frame construction which is very interesting.

  1. I have been having serious discussions with myself over the last couple of years about building a skin on frame Ruth. Should have done it during lockdown, I suppose. Still, another lockdown could come along any moment, so it’s not out of the question.
