Concept: The SS17 is a general purpose, light weight skiff. Layout and building options include but limited: open skiff with tiller outboard (shown in plans), small center console, or side console. The Shine Skiff 17 can be built with wood core sourced locally, strips cut from readily available boards. Part of our concept of this design was to minimize cost by avoiding expensive marine plywood.
Building Method: The SS17 is a composite boat, wood core with biaxial fiberglass skins on both sides, set in epoxy resin. This building method offers an extremely stiff and light hull that requires no more maintenance than a similar FRP hull. The hull is built on a male jig that ensures an accurate and fair hull.
