potty that can be removed from the boat for cleaning. Plumbing is also in place for
a pump-out on the starboard forward deck.
The Tandem trailer is in good condition with decent tires, electric winch, crank jack,
and lifetime Minnesota license. Boat and trailer title certifications are in hand.
Miscellaneous accessories include boat ladders, dock fenders, shore power cords,
communications gear, extinguisher, refrigerator (untested), etc.
Some of the exterior topside vinyl needs to be replaced. The hull generally appears
to be sound but the boat has not been on the water for 9+ years so it will require
some attention. The canvas cover and camping enclosure is included but the canvas
is well worn and will require replacement or repair.

Built by Skiff Craft (aka Henry Boats) of Plain City, Ohio, home to skilled Amish and
Mennonite craftsmen. The company is still in existence today, still building high
quality boats but for a whole lot more than the price of this used one. Skiff Craft also
continues to offer factory parts service.
This cabin boat was designed for the open waters of the Great Lakes. Its high
gunwale design and enclosed helm station and dinette under a hard top provide
plenty of protection from the weather for captain and guests. This is a comfortable
boat for day or over-night cruises. The dinette seats 4, a long lounge at the stern
facing forward provides another 5 seats, and there’s room for a few deck chairs. The
8’ beam enables relatively easy trailering.
A complete canvas camping enclosure can accommodate a family of 4 or 5 for an
overnight cruise. The large cuddy cabin berth sleeps 2, two main deck seats can be
converted to lounges which also double as beds, and the lounge across the stern of
the boat could also be used as a bed.
