  1. Cape Fear Museum in Wilmington is selling a 1958 18’ low-side model Simmons
    Sea-Skiff at a live auction on Saturday, November 8 at 3:00 p.m. According
    to the flier, it needs some work.

  2. Very nice work! I’m impressed at the quality and craftsmanship. This is
    truly a lost art. Keep up th egood work and pass it on to the younger

  3. I’m just a woodworker nor a boat builder, but even I recognize the skill
    and love that went into this build. Wonderful boat and a great video too.

  4. I always wondered if anybody build such a boat should get it registered/
    pay any sort of tax/ other fees, or boats like this aren’t a subject for
    governmental mosquito sucking blood?

  5. As a woodworker, boater and builder by trade, I commend you for 2 things –
    1) that you undertook such an immense project and produced such a great
    object that could positively influence the lives of many individuals – 2)
    that you shared it with us here on this venerable YouTube site. That is a
    spectacular and well crafted boat and I, for one, am glad you shared that
    with us and particularly me since I am about to embark on my personal boat
    building experience which will be a 20ft mahogany copy of a GoFast speed
    boat and am sincerely looking forward to it. Thank you for sharing this
    and safe boating.

  6. Well, I hope you made one for everyone! LOL.
    Great video and beautiful boat.
    Kind of a cross between a dory and a flats boat.

  7. YouTubers everywhere could take a lesson from your narration style. You
    knew EXACTLY what to say without the annoying uhms and stutters. The
    entire video flowed well and the music matched. It’s a joy to watch a
    video like this where there is no wasted time, just information.

    You did a fine job on that boat and thank you for sharing.

  8. beautiful boat, I love wooden boats, they have so much more character than
    the new commercially sold fiberglass ones.
