An amazing restoration of a classic Sea Skiff built on the upper eastern shore of Maryland in Annapolis by Nelson Silva. Hand laid glass over wood. 2018 Suzuki had 20 hr service. Hydraulic steering.

The Simmons Sea Skiff, with her shallow V-hull bow that flattens out as it extends to the stern, will quickly plane and run at 30 mph with a 50 HP engine.  She is quite light, displacing just 650 pounds.  The bow gets its high sheer line from its New England dory roots.  The unique, raked transom/inboard motor well helps the boat to ride oncoming waves from astern, and allows complete access to the water from the stern of the boat.  The hull is long and narrow and performs well at all speeds, and will turn sharply.  She was designed as a fishing boat, and when trolling, tracks well, and skims over the water with 10” of draft.

Simmons came up with a design that included a high, severely raked transom (about 35°), which met with the fisherman’s approval.  The boat soon became popular with the local fishermen and later, in the 1950's, Simmons modified his design to include a motor well for mounting an outboard engine, so that the boat could maintain swamping prevention and ride the surf with its high, raked transom in a following sea.  

It was commonly said amongst the local fisherman, "It will get you back in, long after you wish you weren't out there".
