Every Crab Alley Skiff is handcrafted and custom-built for each owner. The lightweight CA 1600 and CA1800 skiffs are constructed entirely of PVC sheet materials and trim boards. With its flat bottom, raised bow and hard chine hull, the design itself is nostalgic of classic wooden rowboats, yet innovative because no wood is used in the construction. Built with the framing of the 30's & 40's planked skiffs, and the bottom and sides of the 50's & 60's plywood skiffs, blends the best of the past with the lightweight, maintenance free, economic future.  The Crab Alley Skiffs are less then half the weight of wood and FRP. So it’s OK to use a 9.9 or 15 HP on the CA1600 instead of that 30 or 40 HP gas hog! Think of the weight you don't have to pay to carry, push, or tow.  What's right - NOTHING TO ROT, SINK OR BURN!
