Introducing the Tygart Lake Boat

I recently rebuilt a 28 year old plywood skiff that was destined for
the chainsaw and bonfire. She will be spending time on Tygart Lake
in West Virginia.

Here's a video of the project..


During the reconstruction the decision was made to add a foredeck and
reconfigure the seating. She was also trimmed in mahogany.
She emerged from the shop a different boat. I have measurements of the
boat and new boats will be built to order from this design.

New boats will be built from the following materials:
Varnished Mahogany transom and trim
Okoume marine plywood bottom and planking
Pennsylvania White Oak framing
Stainless Steel and Silicon Bronze fasteners
Epifanes Marine Enamel Colors

The Tygart Lake Boat is approximately 15 feet in length and just over 5 feet in beam.

She will conform to US Coast Guard capacity limits which are still being calculated.

A short shaft Mercury 6 hp motor and a Load-Rite trailer are included.

Price per boat is $9,900.00
