  • And so it begins!

    Well, my buddy and I couldn't resist buying this 16' skiff and doing a little stretching to better fit our needs! This was originally built by Svendsen Marine in Wrangell quite a few years ago and David Svendsen is now stretching it 5' or so and putting a Yamaha 200hp jet on it. That's David's main man Frank, one of the most skilled boat builder/mechanics/all-around-great-guy I have ever had the pleasure meeting in the photo. Hopefully we will get some progress photos and I will post them if so. Planning on using this boat alongside our larger cruiser for accessing some streams for fishing. Hope you enjoy!Click image for larger version

    cool, cutting boats in half is a great way to start a thread, Keep it coming.

            The boat looks great, some good planing and execution went into it. Looking forward to seeing it finished.

              Always preferred "gutshooting" rather than stern extensions. Looking like a great job on the right technique, too!

                Few more photos. Stretching is finished and engine mounted. Next will be a bench seat that incorporates a fuel tank and storage.
