What Kind of skiff is this?

Looks like an old Mako they converted from an I/O.

 

what he said... looks like they added a bracket and dropped a way-too-big motor on the back. they'll be losing some fillings for sure when that thing gets moving

They put a reinforcing plate on the transom before the bracket. I am pretty sure it was not an I/O. In fact I have never heard of an I/O 17 mako.

 

115 is a little more than most would power that most might go with in the Northeast, however that would be pretty standard in FL or the Gulf Coast.

i've never seen a seavee with a tansom like that, nor one that small.

 

i agree with the above theories. Mako17 Project. Closed off & reshaped new transom, hung OB on bracket. Pretty common project on the bigger makos.

 

I don't think 115 is too much at all for that boat, but i think the angle of the pic makes that motor look very big...

 

edit: the one thing throwing me is how high she sits. seems to be sittiing much higher than a normal mako...
