Brand new 15’ x 4’ x 1’ Chesapeake Rail Bird Skiff / Susquehanna Flats Skiff and reconditioned trailer for sale
Located on PA Rte. 851 Bridgeview Rd. in Stewartstown, PA.

Based on the historical rail bird marsh hunting skiff, it's an excellent boat for many purposes; fishing, picnicking, mooring taxi, setting decoys and picking up ducks, or just snooping around your favorite gunkhole.

Simply put, there's a reason it was popular for over one hundred years - it works.

Details:
Transom and Hull.
100% Sealed plywood totally new construction for waterproofing, strength and durability -
epoxy and fiber glassed plus up the sides 3 inches inside and out.

Interior and Exterior sides.
Waterproof glue-saturated canvas covered plywood sides overlapping fiber glass after classic canoe and aircraft method for minimum weight while maximum waterproofing and abrasion resistance -

Is it tough enough? It withstands heavy hammer blows without a mark!

Hull skid runners and skeg for directional stability.
Protective aluminum strips armor both stem and transom top.
Stainless steel fittings and hardware throughout.

Removable cedar aft casting/poling deck for stable elevated view with space behind for twin batteries or ice chest. There are two sets of seats: one set with floatation (as seen in original white-painted hull photos), one set of laminated wood for owner-supplied fishing seats.

The flat transom will also take a small outboard engines in the 1 to 5 horsepower range or electric trolling motors.
Two rowing stations. An easy rower, should be super quick and maneuverable under power.

The older galvanized trailer has new: wheels, tires, grease and bearings, Bearing Buddies, coupler, chains, carpeted bunks, and new wiring and lighting (that really works!).

Transferible title in hand. This affordable, hand built customizable utility boat with its trailer is a great value at the $3000.00 asking price. Make me a reasonable offer I can't refuse!

(Please contact me by email or phone for an appointment. The family at this address is not involved with the sale. Also, due to two fraudulent hackers' efforts to rip me off immediately after initially posting this ad I will only accept Paypal, face-to-face cash or a certified check that has cleared before releasing the boat. Sorry if they have made this inconvenient for you. Beware of fraud and read Craigslist great info about it. Thank you.)
