Ralph, i had a nice long sail in richard`s goat island skiff today and had a lovely sail. he has made a great job of the boat and it went like a dream.. Skiffs up to 16′ for outboard, oars propulsion, or sail. see the dinghies category too.. The lines for these plans came from a 100-year-old builders’ model. this is a clipper version of a working trap skiff with lapstrake planking and steamed frames.
