There's another great thread I've been following on the construction of Xcelerator Boatworks new 17' Carolina style flats skiff. They've documented their whole build, from here:
This skiff is a real work of art and clearly aimed at the mega-sportfisher crowd where it would look great perched on the bow of a matching 80' Hatteras. They haven't posted a price yet but I can't imagine it costing less than $50k. Really interesting and you can see the whole thing here.
