Re: Pee Wee in Maine

...But I’ve been watching for a good deal on a jet ski trailer for the PeeWee. Figured it would be easier to just have it on a trailer. And this just popped up on CL. So I bought it ;) 9E7E36E3-DCB7-4710-95C6-63BE91070B29.png Trailer needs a little work but it was a fair price and I got the ski for ...

Re: Pee Wee in Maine

That's a great picture, with the boat in the pick-up bed. We can see how you load it with the crane. But, how do you launch it upon arrival at the boat ramp? Don't tell us you just back down the ramp, until the boat floats off..... We don't think you load it back onto the truck that way, either.......

Re: Pee Wee in Maine

Hey, I’m back. Mark, it was very nice meeting you. Agreed it was way to short of a time to check out the boats and talk. I was very impressed with your ski-tow. Got to say I was surprised at how much interior space you had. Very different feel then a modern fiberglass boat. Seemed much roomier. Was ...

Looking good Matt.

As far as anchors look at the Mantus 8lb. Add a little chain and one of the bungee lines. In mud or sand it’s a drop and forget about it deal when you want to set anchor.

Re: Resize Plans- Squirt

+1 on the pee wee.

7’6” by ~4’ beam.

I stretched the frame spacing on mine 2” which is about the max you can go and still cut the side panels out of one 8’ piece of ply.

Re: Pee Wee in Maine

Nope, went to my local town office. They had me fill out a form that they faxed to inland fisheries. Got back my Hull Identification Number that I now have to carve, burn, emnboss, stamp or otherwise permanently affix to the hull in two locations. Once I do that I need to bring pics of the HIN on th...

Re: Pee Wee in Maine

Yes, going in the water this weekend :D Just need to wire up the bilge pump and second kill switch on the dash and it’s done. This winter I’m going to add some more varnish to the decks. And I need to see where the waterline is before I varnish the topsides. But done enough to get it in the water. G...

Re: Squirt Build - New Builder - Deck planking

Congrats on the new build. It seems everyone does the deck planking a little bit differently. Depends somewhat on the tools you have and the look you want. I remember seeing pics somewhere of a builder using a spring board to set the curve and then using a router for the outer planks. Looked like it...
