The Sallie Hyde , first of the classic Sea Bright Skiffs, has been tirelessly restored by LBS boat builders. The bottom was completely rebuilt, and a new “Grey Marine” motor was built out of original parts. The Sea Bright Skiff originated in New Jersey, and the Sallie Hyde is an exceptionally able and comfortable open motorboat, ideal for fishing, day cruising or earning a living for some water minded man.
Lowell’s Boat Shop made the cover of the fall issue of Wooden Boat Magazine with the first of a two-part article detailing how to construct a 16’ Amesbury Skiff. Using entirely traditional methods, boat builders Graham McKay and Jeff Lane produced a basic tiller steered outboard version of this timeless family motorboat. Plans for this boat are available in the Store section of our website.
