Arch Davis Jiffy 22??

After 40 years I'm ready to build my second wooden boat. Does anyone have experience with or knowlegde of the Arch Davis Jiffy 22? It is a 22' flat bottomed, O/B cabin skiff that is styled after a downeast lobster boat; http://www.by-the-sea.com/archdavisdesign/davis_jiffy22.html

I thought that it might be fun to have a big skiff that I could kick around in and this looks like it might be fun to build. I'd be using the boat mostly for in-shore fishing, exploring the islands of Boston Harbor, and possibly doing the Erie Canal. What are your thoughts on this boat and a project like this for a guy that is a fair wood worker, but hasn't built a boat in a long time?
