The Jimmy Skiff II is a stable, lightweight 13’ utility dinghy that rows beautifully, sails fast on all points, and handles great with a small outboard (2-3 hp is plenty). It’s a great family boat for days on the water fishing or gunkholing and weighs only 120 lbs. The Chesapeake Light Craft computer-cut kit makes it a perfect project for first-time builders.
