With the rising interest in extreme access to shallow water, Dragonfly Boatworks set out to design a watercraft that would use minimum horsepower and still have a good running surface to cross rough water. In addition, the boat needed to be quiet and easy to handle. The answer the design crew came up with is the Marsh Hen, a 14-foot skiff that weighs in at only 135 pounds. Because it is so lightweight and has a beam of only 48 inches, two people can literally pick the skiff up to be transported in the bed of a pickup truck or on a set of SUV luggage racks. One of the most unique features of the Marsh Hen is the entry that allows the skiff to have a quiet rolled surface, which means there is no reflective area to create hull slap. The bottom edge of the transom is also rolled so that a single angler can effectively stern-pole from the bow and still maintain a stealthy approach.
