In Renn Tolman's book you'll find not only the plans for building your skiff, you'll also find a mountain of information for the first time boat builder. You'll know what tools you need, what supplies, plywood, epoxy etc to purchase for you project. I think at last count Renn has personally hand built over 100 of these fine boats and the design evolution is evidence of this man's quest for the perfect offshore fishing skiff.
Run don't walk to the book store for this book. And while you're at it, write Renn a note and order his Widebody and Jumbo model addendums. You'll find it's worth every penny.
I'm currently in the middle of building my own Tolman Jumbo Skiff. It's 22' long with an 8' beam and it's rugged and is aesthetically pleasing. Nope, it's beautiful...
