Re: kutter1's TNT

I would reach out to Neel Thompson. He lives in PA and has a gentry that he built. I believe it is registered in PA. See what he had to do. Maybe you need to go outside of Pittsburgh area. Sometimes it is just which bureaucrat you are dealing with.

It looks like you did cut it too short, but if that area is notched for the shear, you might be alright.

Re: Hello Hello

Welcome. If 20' isn't too big I'd also look at the Kokanee or the 20' Vee Gull (says an inboard sport fisher, but it can also be powered by a single or twin outboard.)

Re: The Fletchers Malahini

I also am considering pushing the cross rail at frame one more aft and have two smaller storage areas on either side of the motor well. If fact, I'm trying to figure a ...
