Diablo

15 ft skiff designed by Phil Bolger and taken from Dynamite Payson's Instant Boats book. It was an enjoyable first boat project. I added an center rear seat and a bow seat. I launched her into San Diego Bay. There was a slight chop so she bounced a bit, but there really was very little weight in the boat. She has a very shallow draft. She is a dry boat and corners well. I am impressed with Phil Bolger designs and the tack and tape techniques.
