The Candlefish 16 is a burdensome fishing skiff. Deep and seaworthy, it is wonderfully suited to life in our changeable weather and strong tides. Deep enough to keep her occupants dry, and light enough to launch off the beach, she's perfect with 10 to 30 hp.
Lockable storage and enclosed flotation augment the factor of safety and add a great deal of rigidity to her 15' 10 7/16 length.
Easy to build to a workboat fit and finish, or take as much time as you want to showcase your craftsmanship. The choice is yours, but either way she'd make a wonderful utility skiff, with truck-like attributes.
The basic kit is enough to build the bare hull, ready for rollover.
The price of a Candlefish 16 hull kit is $2485. It includes 8 sheets of BS1088 marine ply, the construction jig, plans and assembly instructions. It is shipped on a 4' x 8' x 8.5" pallet weighing 550#.
This basic hull kit does not include dimensional lumber as those are best fit on-site. It also does not include cloth or epoxy, we can provide pricing on request.
