    I came across the wooden skiff on tht and I tried googling skiffs that look
    similar. I haven't found anything else.

    Can someone here Identify this skiff type ?
    Is there a certain name or brand ?

    That is a generic skiff that has no particular name or lineage. There are thousands of them of that type. You can find many plan sets for similar skiffs on the internet.

    That is my kind of boat. No frills, no phony claims. It appears to have a small bit of dead rise at the transom. Aside from that, or even including that, it is an example of a good little skiff that is unpretentious, sensible, and economical. We old timers label it: "an honest boat".
