Re: Kenner Skipjack or similar

Just catching up on this site. I actually bought the one from Washington and brought it back to the Bay. Looking forward to getting to work on her. But would love to hear advice from a current owner. Especially since you are local as well.

Fair winds.

Re: Kenner Skipjack or similar

I have been reading up on these boats (not a lot of info out there) and there is one for sale in Washington State where the owner says he has gone through several storms in it.

They have a fair amount of ballest too, always a good thing

Re: Kenner Skipjack or similar

I have never sailed in the ocean. The boat is quite adequate for the Chesapeake Bay. I have raced it in 20-25 knot winds Perhaps surprisingly, it does not pound excessively. The boat is not as strongly built as a boat I would feel comfortable on offshore in the Atantic. If everything is in good condition I think it would do fine cruising along the coast. I have read about one crosssing the Atantic some years ago.

What do you think of your's, Purple? I am a big fan of the "workboat ethos" and the Skipjack ticks a lot of boxes for me.

I especially love the extreme shoaldraft with the board up, but still being able to have a livable cabin and deck area. Always wondered how capable something like that is in the ocean, I imagine they pound quite a bit?

Kenner Skipjack or similar

Hi all, I'm looking for a Kenner Skipjack or similar close to the Chesapeake Bay area. I like the look of the open deck. Does anyone have any friends who might have this or similar boat that might want to sell theirs? A project boat is not a problem, but I'd like one with good bones.

Thanks!
