Re: Building The Vera Cruise

I like the direction you’re going Carl. If you remember, as like others were skeptical of your idea of only 1 captain’s chair, but seeing that pic you’re using for inspiration, beautiful is all I can say.

Re: Neel's Palm Beach 22 build

Re: Texas Barrelback 20

Steve, better to have and not need, then to need and not have.

When you have hands come out to your location to run tools, don’t you always order backups? Think of the 4x4 as a back up. Plus resale on a truck is better with 4x4.

Re: Atlantic Skiff build

I prefer the flapper on skupper for when backing down. Keeps the water from rushing in. That pic on page 10 are pretty small but I’d rather have the flap.

Re: Atlantic Skiff build

Gotcha, and I didn’t think about the bright transom. White is definitely a no go, but SS wouldn’t be too bad. I don’t know about the sides. I guess it would be better than not having. Definitely need the scupper flaps if you’re going with the scuppers. I’m constantly cleaning while fishing and it’s ...

Re: BRP To Stop Making Evinrude ETEC

I have the Yamaha 115. Nice engine. I would also look at the Suzuki. It is a good engine also. Bill Agree with Bill here. My BIL is a commercial crab fisherman. He swears by the Yamaha. He said all the CF are running them. I have the Suzuki. It’s been great so far. It’s quite for sure. Hope ya loca...

Re: Atlantic Skiff build

Weller Good to see ya moving forward. My plastic boat has the long ones and the flapper to stop it flooding in when backing down, like ya mentioned. These flappers are store bought, so I would locate some I like and install them. 62457559-E27A-435C-8F9A-331F4685E728.jpeg D901403F-78CA-49CE-BFFA-AC4E...

Nice, I really like those side exit exhausts.
Me too! I think Innocence is Butch’s boat, Tahoe. Beautiful way to go for sure. I think that the Torpedo design would also look good with this option.

Great history and an awesome restoration. Watch 1st - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g-DHWKnl_x4 And then you ...

The staple driver was stuck in the drive position so I secured it in my vise and disassembled the head. Under close inspection I noted excessive rust a...
