Re: New Builder Building a squirt

I get it running good one day and then the next time it's a no go. Starter went out and I'm too old to hand crank it. Going out today for a new one.

Re: New Builder Building a squirt

Been a long time, but she got wet and ready for her first run. Damn old motor crapped out so she never left the dock. Going out today to find a new motor.

Re: Squirt build, in northern Norway

Fred, what model Suzuki did you get and do you know how heavy it is? Just took our Squirt out today and had engine trouble. Never got to run her, but the motor is an old '57 Johnson.

Re: The first party boat

I'd be interested in what you are building. I live in Lake Point out towards Tooele. I've build 2 small boats and 3 paddle boards, so I'm done building stuff. Looking for a pontoon boat now.

Re: Bending Sheers on the Topper

Post a lot of pictures as I just ordered plans for the Topper. I think it'll be a fun and simple build.
