Looks identical to the one I bought from West Marine, price I forgot.

LOL! Awesome.

No plan, I'm just winging it. I did make a pattern of the area of the transom where it will be attached. I've made a prototype box for the port side but I'm thinking I'll remake it with 3/8" plywood instead of the 1/2" I used. The box isn't closed yet as I'm still trying to figure out how to fasten it to the transom.

The boxes will be fiberglassed and painted to match the boat. Sorry the pictures are sideways. I still haven't figured out how to prevent that.

Slick! I see the Lehr 15 weighs 110lbs. What’s your skiff going to weigh when done?

I built it from Glen-l plans. The plans say the finished boat should weigh 125 lbs. I think mine weighs a little more. Here is a link to the plans. 14' Power Skiff 14 - S&G skiff-boatdesign
