Last September I bought another boat and sold my Hobie Power Skiff (everyone who's owned one says they regret selling it, I'm no different).
The new boat is the "Small Fry".

I wanted more protection and somewhere to put a radar so I built a cab. Heres a bunch of pics for peeps looking to do the same... I tried multiple times, but I cannot get them to upload in order but it's pretty simple to see how it goes together... 1/4" Marine plywood to make a core, and I opted for epoxy, 1708 tape, and 7 ounce on all the flats.

took maybe 2 months of winter, working a couple of hours each night and still taking some time to go fishing on the weekends.

Much appreciated. I am pretty in love with it too. and at 126lbs it doesn't make anything unstable, and actually helps to offset the weight of the 90, kicker, and 2 batts plus gas in the stern, and pushes the bow through chop
