Avoid battery core charge at Wal-mart

Dang, I just got a new Everstart Group 29 at Walmart. I had no core and they charged me a $30 Core charge (I'm in Georgia). Wish I had seen these posts before last week.

Alumacraft 1436LT Conversion

A couple years ago I took a small OB into the local marine shop right after my boat had been flipped on the Chattahoochee. I explained to them what happened, as asked them to make it right before the water started rusting up the insides. A month later they still hadn't got to it. so I finally just p...

YJ's Fisher-Marine Build

I have not done it and I would not consider it. That extra 5 inches of transom will be missed if you cut it out. Good way to get swamped over the transom. Tim Thanks Tim. This is why I was worried about even considering it. But at the same time it's looking like unless I do, this boat will never ge...

YJ's Fisher-Marine Build

Got a question for you all. On this boat, the Fisher-Marine 1648, it's made for a long shaft motor. BUT what I have is a Mercury 20hp short shaft motor. I have been considering the idea of modifying the transom to fit the ss motor. Biggest problem is, I don't like that idea, because I don't know of ...

She's a 1648 and right at the moment it's got a Mercury 20 hp short shaft tiller steer but I'm looking for a motor closer to a 50 hp long shaft. some where between 40 and 60.

YJ's Fisher-Marine Build

I've got a question for those of you with more experience than I at rebuilding these boats. I've been working at cutting out the aft deck and the cutout for all the OB lines to go down through. On the width of that cutout I've got it at 2" from the outside of the transom braces. That is 1/2" from th...

Removable boat floor

Hi, I'm going to be install nautolex vinyl over 3/4 spar treated ply in my 16' Blue Fin and I may want to remove the boards at a later time. So I'm thinking of fastening them to the frame with stainless screws. Has anyone done this in the past that has suggestions on which screws to use and the spa...

Right on. This is now my current build. I've had this boat since May 2015. Got a little bit done on it but then stopped for the winter and to obsess on an online store project. I wasn't getting anywhere on that so yesterday I decided that enough is enough. I'm done with that. Maybe permanent maybe n...

Ok.. been a bit since I've posted in this thread. I've been concentrating on my patio deck, trying to get it finished before winter. Got all the joists done and as the $$$ is there, adding the deck floor boards to it, so hope to have it done in the next couple of months. In the mean time I've been t...
