DARKWATER SKIFF Model
The Darkwater Skiff is named for the deep black
water rivers of SC, such as the Edisto, which run through rich organic soils and
abundant cypress knees. This skiff design has proven itself for
generations in the Southeast on rivers, lakes and rough coastal conditions.
Designed for heavy duty, commercial grade use, the Darkwater is a little harder
to build than some other skiff designs, but it is unequalled in durability and
The Darkwater Skiff features a removable dry-box that serves as the front seat
and a removable rear seat, to ease both cleanup and drying. A piece of ply
can be cut to lay atop the ribs with the seats removed for tangle-free bait net
casting and shrimp net hauling.
It is recommended that you have some woodworking experience and access to the
basic tools, including a tablesaw.
