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

super cool any pics of the inside? how do you drop and pull anchor through the little hatch or just walk around?
I dont really anchor up for anything out here in norcal tbh but yeah you can walk around or pop up through the hatch. not a great pic, but its got 4 storage bays under the cushions, 12 gal fresh water tank in the bow, and then room to sleep 2 on top the cushions when they're all in place..
