Re: Matt's Geronimo

Bob, I had guide ons like those on my jon boat trailer. It made it stupid easy to load. I could just ram it on at about any reasonable angle. I have some goal post guide ons on order for this trailer as well as what I hope will be a solution for my winch post troubles. I'll see how they work.

Re: New member from Oklahoma

My bad, I see that the coastal cruiser has a steel version also. My dream is the coastal cruiser or similar will be my retirement boat.

Re: New member from Oklahoma

Union Jack would be a better starting point since it's already pretty much the size you want. Plus it's already designed for steel. Or do you want exactly 10 foot beam? Changing the beam on these designs isn't as simple as changing the length. You know there's a seaport in Tulsa? Welcome to the forum.

Re: Tucker's Squirt

I had a 4 stroke Mercury 25 on my Jon boat. I could always have a full day on the lake using just a few gallons. This past Saturday launching the Geronimo I used about 4 gallons of gas with a 90 hp motor. We were on the lake from 9 am til 3 pm. Not running the whole time but still. Six gallons will ...

Re: Stephens Zip

The plywood was the single biggest investment in my build not counting the motor. You'll have a lot to keep you busy now!

Re: Matt's Geronimo

Thanks for the pictures, Bob. We might get a tube next spring. The little guy needs to get more comfortable in the water but the boat will help with that! I think the winch setup that my trailer came with is not that great. I think I have a solution. I just need a standoff to hold the bow stop. But ...

Re: Matt's Geronimo

Matt, I think you've hit on the biggest issue I have with the winch setup which is that my bow eye is above the rubber "Y" bow stop. So I am having to try to winch over the top of that which is not working at all. I have to see if there is something I can do with the parts I have or if I n...
