Ski Bass by Louis F. Mauro

27 August 2007

Hi folks,
I purchased plans for a ski bass about 16 years ago. I converted it to an open bow and put a Mariner 150 on the back. Never got around to sending you guys a picture. Thought you might like to see it. Took me 6 summers to build. Been in the water for ten years. People still turn their heads and give me a thumbs up. Bennett Trim Tabs. Custom Stereo & power amps. Livewells double as coolers. Two people = 55mph.
Thank You,

Louis F. Mauro

Trim tabs are a must with 150 horse. I do not recommend anything smaller. Need to move the motor well forward about 4-6 inches in the plans. The mariner cannot tilt all the way forward without hitting. I'm sure the motors of today would have even more of a problem. I would not recommend a 4 stroke due to weight. I attached a removable ski pylon to the motor well and it works beautifully.
