Class Details: 

The original Jimmy Skiff was launched by Chesapeake Light Craft in 1998. An immediate success, this straightforward 13-foot skiff has remained popular for twenty years.

Designer John C. Harris has been working on a clean-sheet redesign since 2012. The prototype was launched in 2017 and was in testing for 18 months.

The Jimmy Skiff II is the same length as its predecessor and only an inch or two wider, but it's a higher-volume, stiffer boat. Those looking for a super-versatile utility skiff will be hard-pressed to find a better design. The Jimmy Skiff II rows beautifully, sails fast on all points, and handles great with an outboard engine.

In this class you'll build your own Jimmy Skiff II under the tutelage of CLC's expert boatbuilders/instructors.  The class will get you through about 45 hours of construction, which is enough time to complete the major assemblies and have the boat fully sealed with epoxy.  You'll take care of the finish sanding, painting, and varnishing at home.
