Simmon's Sea Skiff 18'

A Classic Gulf Stream fishing boat designed to be lightweight, and to take a following sea better than it’s Dory predecessors. The hull lines were from plans*, with some modifications to the interior. A laminated tow-rail and, fold-down seating in the cockpit among them. Materials are Hydro-Tech marine plywood (scrafed planks), Sapele Mahogany framing and trim, with clear Douglas Fir keel and stem.

*(Dave Carnell’s plans for the Simmons Sea Skiff 18 are available from the Cape Fear Museum.)
