Glades Skiff concept
The idea I had here is to run this light weight skiff like the gill netters and mullet boat guys do. But by having the motor mounted up from the transom the skiff would be more balanced for poling alone or in winds. The small tunnel set up and the way to tilt the engine out of the well is different than the mullet skiffs as I don’t want a huge tunnel well like the skiffs of the past. I have used this set up in my sailboat designs and it works with a minimum of displacement loss.
This skiff will be very quiet with is rounded stern. It’s written up in detail on my other blog
