Lone Star 1956 Restore

Hey guys, thanks for asking. I’m sorry to say, I’ve not finished her. She is parked on the back of our property with a tarp covering her. Her motor is still on the stand in the barn. I just lost interest. Perhaps some day I will uncover her and finish what I started. When I do, you guys will be the ...

Kis, I didn't say 250 on the hoof. All you need is a nice lady that likes to fish to ride up front. 120 lbs would help hold that bow down.
It would make at good Candid Camera skit, Rich!

" and bits and pieces as they occur to me." THAT process never seems to end, does it? Ha Ha My wife has finally reconciled herself that none of my boats will "ever ...be done". richg99 :LOL2: :LOL2: :LOL2: Isn't that the truth! Money pits, they are, but they sure are fun to do.

Barge/Cabin Build on The Sabine River, East Texas

:shock:

We didn't get it nearly as bad as Houston, Katy and surrounding. Barges are all fine, but the guys did go and make sure pulleys and weights were all ok. My goodness at all the rain Texas has seen this past year.

Thanks for asking!

Barge/Cabin Build on The Sabine River, East Texas

Sorry it has taken me so long to finish this thread. These are the pics of the final product, including stainless counter tops and a stainless sink. The water to the sink runs off a 12v pump, just like a water pump in an RV. River water is used for cleaning fish; the twist of a handle switches it to...

tips on running jet in bays/flats

Sorry, can't answer your question about grasses in AR, but I am interested in knowing how your jet runs. We are beginning to see a lot of jet outboards in East Texas. Mostly Mercury 60/40, both remote stick steer with a hot foot and tiller. Please do post how your Evinrude runs; water conditions; de...

You guys are too funny! :LOL2: Mr. Johnny, I have answered your pm. Bobber, rest assured, I am not an expert on anything, well, except making sure I'm seated at the supper table. :LOL2: This looks like a LS Commander, but, I could be wrong. They were, and still are, a pretty popular boat around the ...
