Nifty, Incredibly Strong, Maine-Built Skiffs
Recently, while going down to Rockland [Maine] to look at some engines to purchase, I came across an old friend (I mean that Jerry has been a friend for a long time, not that he is old) who is making some of the prettiest, rugged (to use a good Maine phrase) skiffs I have ever seen.
I watched as a number of fishermen rowed in or out to their boats and Jerry proudly pointed out those that were his. The rowers had these little boats (they come in 10.5- and 12-foot lengths) skipping across the water and then heaved them out of the water and onto the float as if they weighed nothing. They are stable, lightweight, and impressively over-built with stainless steel screws, oak framing, and epoxy bonded joints and wear strips.
Below are some pictures that Jerry emailed me. If you need a tender (and like a good value) you might want to give him a call:
