One of the skiffs built by school children at Faversham being powered along by an electric outboard.
The skiffs are built at Faversham Creek Trust’s Boat Camp to free plans available from Intheboatshed.net
The skiffs were built under the tutelage of local boatbuilder Alan Thorne, who is also a supplier for electric outboards, folding RIBs and inflatable canoes. Call Alan on 07865 091155
I’m not a fisherman, but surely this inexpensive and quick little rig would surely be great for line fishing in and out of suitable creeks, rivers and lakes…

I commend to the Boat Camp participants on their fine results, and this one looks good under motor power. I know that is not the intended means of propulsion, but my own Julie skiff performs very well with a 4-horsepower outboard. It planes modestly and shows no bad tendencies. To have this kind of motorized performance in a boat that rows (very) well is unusual.
Thanks for the endorsement Geoff!
