I'm looking at a similar boat for a s/w skiff conversion. Any idea of the draft of this hull?

After looking up how to calculate draft and some rough measurements, it came out to 1.052 ft. I used two people each weighing 180 lbs.

Thanks for the info. Not sure this style will suit my needs. Heck I'm 260 by myself and my main fishing partner (13 yr old son, who is a man child in his own right) is already close to 170 so we wouldn't be fishing skinny TX gulf coast water. Thanks again, btw great work so far cannot wait for the finished product.

Completed the vinyl on some of the parts today. Finished trimming the rest. Six more parts need vinyl install. Installed more rivets in the rear structure. I'm really impressed with the vinyl. Glad I went vinyl rather than carpet.

Ran all of the wire for the front accessories. Strung and clamped the conduit. Installed the forward panel and two flush mount rod holders. Painted the side panel and some of the metal supports in the aft portion of the boat. Still working to get the right look for the Bass Tracker panel.

Made more progress. Mounted the seats, installed more vinyl on some hatch covers and in the rod locker.
