|Outboard Skiff 15
This is a stretched version of our OB15. There is a slight difference in the sheer line but besides that, she is juts a longer version of the successful OB15. The longer waterline gives her more speed, a little bit more room and make her easier to launch from trailer.
The design is more a composite boat than a stitch and glue one. Such an epoxy/plywood composite boat will be lighter and/or stronger than a similar production boat. Lighter, she will go faster and burn less fuel.
We designed the biggest boat possible using 4 sheets of plywood for the hull. A 15 hp outboard is sufficient to get her out of the hole with one person on board but a 25 hp is the ideal engine. The interior layout is typical of a fishing boat that will also be used for family outings. There is room for an Igloo cooler lashed behind the forward floor and lots of storage. She is unsinkable thanks to the foam under the floor and the motor well.
This boats transom is designed for a standard 15" shaft. The transom can easily be modified to accept other shaft lengths.
The large scale plans show options such as center console, seats with side console, fish boxes and live bait wells, built-in gas tanks, light options etc.
You can customize her: put the storage boxes and seats where you want them, keep her simple or install every accessories you want.
[PH18] A flats fisherman dream. Light weight, easy to pole, very shallow draft
