You guys with your rad compact skiffs have inspired me to get off my ass and build one. I have a bigger boat but was interested in getting a little 12-15 ft skiff for crabbing in the Puget Sound and San Juan Islands. Up here in the NW, Livingston's are pretty common( and cheap), so I picked up a 13fter yesterday. I like the stability that a cat hull provides in such a small boat. Ill start by cleaning it, drying it out, removing all the crap on it, flipping it and getting to work on the outer hull.
