We’ll power with 5 hp Mercury. 16 foot skiff boats was a first time project.
I purchased the plan, resins and fiberglass from Glen-L. Had a great time building the boat, relearned a lot of geometry, and best of all, I built this for my granddaughter! 14-foot Glen-L Power-Row Skiff, started 2010, launched 2011. Your plans and materials were great and everything worked out very well. I wanted a large flat bottom skiff for my nephews to fish and chase turtles with that would be stable and safe during the summer and have the same qualities for 63 year-old me in the fall hunting ducks and geese from a floating blind. I’m still tinkering with the Peazy but have all the major construction finished. Where do you get your marine plywood?

This article is about a type of boat. The term skiff is used for a number of essentially unrelated styles of small boat. Traditionally, these are coastal craft or rivercrafts used for leisure or fishing, and have a one-person or small crew. Sailing skiffs have developed into high performance competitive classes. The term has been used for a number of styles of craft round the United Kingdom, often small river and sea going craft. They varied from double ended rowing boats to small sailing boats. The poet John Milton refers to a ‘night foundered skiff’ in Paradise Lost as early as 1670.
