1970ish Mirrorcraft 14 Deep Fisherman Project

Post by DesertRAT » 16 Nov 2014, 23:49

hi Everyone,

I've been trolling on this site since the beginning of this summer and picked up a 1970ish Mirrorcraft 14 Deep Fisherman back in July. I currently live in Apple Valley, California. It is the high desert (Mojave) and I live about 30 minutes from 2 lakes, Big Bear Lake at Bear Mountain and Silverwood Lake in Cedar Pines. I retired from the military, put in 23 years, and the last time I really had time to fish was when I was a teenager prior to joining the service. I retired in 2004 and got into off-roading with my 4 sons. That took a toll on my insides and have been forced to slow it up some. I'm still working for the government, as a civilian, and putting 10-12 hours shifts per day and only have about an hour or so per night to work on my projects. I renovated a used pontoon a few years back and that has been a blast, however, it is almost impossible to fish out of. My dad knew a guy who new a guy who had this mirrorcraft sitting in a horse corral for the last 30+ years. He needed to get rid of it and I took it sight unseen. The boat was tarped up and I hooked on to it and got it home. It came with a 15hp 2-stroke Evinrude which also had not been run for 30+ years so I had no idea what to expect. I really would like to clean it up and put in some fishing decks and seats. From all of the other mirrorcraft owners on this site, I am very impressed what you guys are capable of doing to this boats. I am going to clean it up and start getting a plan together. I got a ton of questions to ask and will start this build within a week or two and will post pics as I go along.
