Re: 1993 Sea Nymph 16 ft vee

Looks like I needed a little more ACM so I got a sheet of 3mm for $65. Also using it to box in deck storage. If all it needed was a live well I could have doubled it up to make 6mm.

Storage will probably get vinyl inside.

Re: 1993 Sea Nymph 16 ft vee

Started framing the deck today. This may be the year I go fishing.

Re: 1993 Sea Nymph 16 ft vee

It's that time of year to work on the boat again. So far I like how it's turning out. Got these hatches off Amazon a year or two ago. Seems like they were about $30 ea. https://i.imgur.com/cFjp1VI.jpg https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00MUDJC18/ref=ppx_od_dt_b_asin_title_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Added a p...

Re: Awful wreck in my yard this morning

Thanks everyone. I could tell that poor woman died instantly. I'm waiting to hear back from the city about moving that bus stop. Every year or two someone loses control around that curve and jumps the curb. One drove his truck into the church and a guy on a motorcycle died several years before that.

Awful wreck in my yard this morning

This morning a car left the road and hit the tree in my yard after hitting a pole and killing a woman waiting for the bus. He left no skids marks meaning he hit everything at full speed. One wheel landed 8 ft up the tree and the motor and transmission came out of the car. Somehow the driver lived. A...

Quiet at home

I get a lot of them too which I don't answer. I live by myself and not long ago I got several robocalls showing up as my own landline number.

At least craigslist found a way to cut out scammers. They charge $5 to list a car now.

Splashwell

I'd be afraid to be without one since I like tiller boats which have a lot of weight at the rear.

Not another boat

I've got two in the yard and the boat of a lifetime turns up at an affordable price. So far I managed to stay away from it but no one will buy it. Sheesh. Is this a common syndrome with everyone? Ordinarily I'd set the hook and unload the other two but selling any kind of vehicle around here seems t...

The gasket has the same part number for each but the heads don't. Which would make sense. http://www.marineengine.com/parts/johnson-evinrude-parts.php?year=1970&hp=25&model=25002E&manufacturer=Evinrude§ion=Powerhead+Group https://www.marineengine.com/parts/johnson-evinrude-parts.php?year=1971&hp...

14ft Lowe v front boat

Maybe a few inches of water can be rolled around to check for leaks so you don't have to fill it up and stress the hull.

Evinrude 35 vs Etec 40- Worth the upgrade on a 16' V-bottom?

Two 2 stroke 40s in good shape like this one can still be found. It weighs 160 lbs and were made by Yamaha. I bought a tiller handle off ebay and then waited until I found the motor which turned up in Roanoke. I expect it will fly.

Evinrude 35 vs Etec 40- Worth the upgrade on a 16' V-bottom?

Somewhat off topic but I wouldn't mind a motor that uses more gasoline. I don't get on the water all that much anymore so gas sits around longer than it probably should.

Evinrude 35 vs Etec 40- Worth the upgrade on a 16' V-bottom?

My boat looks similar and I have the same debate, me and the motor being in one place. Mine is rated for 40 but some of those are really heavy and it's hard to say if it's worth a gain in hp when adding so much weight. Whenever it's ready for the water I'm gonna try an older 40C Mariner which weighs...

Yamaha 25 vs Tohatsu 25 vs Suzuki 25

I've been looking at different electric start tiller 20" for a couple of years and decided to find a 4 stroke at least 30 hp. So far Suzuki at 163 lbs (with some kind of tilt trim) looks to be the lightest 30 by a wide margin. Everything else seems to be 180 to 220 lbs. Not entirely given up on the ...
