Today’s podcast is with Lou Hoang of Bellevue, WA. Lou wanted a functional and seaworthy skiff that he could use for crabbing and fishing in northwest waters. Enter the Candlefish 16′ by Devlin Boats.

Lou purchased the kit in 2014 and after an estimated 500-600 hours finished her up early this year. Lou has had her out a dozen times or so already this year, and his 5 year old son caught his first fish over the gunwale of Nausicaa.

Lou modified the design slightly by adding a center console – and he did a fabulous job. Nice work Lou!
