Jericho Bay Lobster Skiff, launched in August, 2020. My first boat build, built part time in my garage.

Rigged with a 2021 Yamaha 25 HP. A light engine, only 126 lbs, reaches 25 mph. Nav lights, GPS-enabled VHF, Garmin 1400 GPS/Chartplotter, digital engine gauge. The battery and all electronic wiring is inside the steering console and two 3-gallon fuel tanks are housed inside the center seat, which makes for a very clean look. Wire runs to the console from the bow and stern for the nav lights, radio antenna and transponder are housed inside 1″ white raceways that run below the gunnels, which makes them virtually disappear along the hull. Front and rear seas have approx. 8 cu ft of flotation.

Many comments on the boat at the dock and on the water, it clearly stands out.
