Anyone looking to sell a 16ft fiberglass skiff; flat bottom or semi-v? My wife wants one to do some crabbing/fishing in the creeks instead of taking the Parker. Trailer is a must but it does not have to have a motor.

I have a 16' dory w/ a 30 hp tohatsu outboard boat, motor and trailer... p-mail me for details. This is a great fishing/crabbing skiff very stable heavy and slow (15 knts.) Cheap to operate and low maintainence... Great for trot-linning or setting traps. Having trouble posting the pics...

I have a 2006 Sundance Skiff B20 ( 20 foot) with a 90 HP Yamaha 4 Stroke only 116 hours set up for crabbing plus 1000 ft bungee snood line that I cant find time to use. If you dont think this is to much boat bmail.

i forwarded your request to a buddy who has an old 15.5' manning hull. quite possibly the best little boat there is for crabbing and the like. they are stable, seaworthy and economical to run. he was in the process of putting a new transom on it last i heard. dunno if he ever finished the job or not. they are GREAT boats.

I have a very nice, simple 1989 Proline with an 85 hp Yamaha. This is a really big 16' boat (7' beam). There is no interior liner and a large forward platform so she is perfect for fishing, crabbing, etc. in skinny water. Draws 7" or so. Might be perfect for what you need.

I bought the rig in March of 2009, and it has been in my garage since. I had planned to fish the Potomac at DC but we have a cottage at Cove Point and I keep a Sea Hunt in Solomons - just haven't had time to use the Proline. Boat was previously owned by Al Cummings and the original owner was a Gregory Sullivan (Edgewater).

I have posted pictures at: https://picasaweb.google.com/achesnpains1/1989Proline?feat=directlink. Since those pictures I have removed the Proline graphics as they had gotten pretty ragged.

In 1989, Yamaha made two types of engines - one was premix and the other did not require premix. This is a premix version which appealed to me because there is less to go wrong. I have the manual for this engine.

Let me know if you'd like to take a look. I live in Reston, Va. 703-444-6538.

Thanks for all the help. After some research it looks like a carolina skiff J16 or 16dlx is the preferred boat for her. No frills, tiller steer.
