1978 Lund S-14' Aluminum V Restore

Looking real good WPS! Where do you fish in E Ky? We have a little place in the northern Daniel Boone forest (Northern Morgan County) and usually go to Cave Run Lake (the backwaters/ N Fork of the Licking). I have heard good things about Paintsville, Yatesville and Grayson Lakes but haven't tried t...

1978 Lund S-14' Aluminum V Restore

Nice boat, how did you clean the outside aluminium? Thanks! I used Brillo pads to clean the aluminum... I cleaned a small area at a time, and made sure to rinse the aluminum off to get the tiny metal fibers from the Brillo pads off... Then used a stainless steel pad to go back over it. It took a lo...

14ft aluminium boat safe to fish coastal saltwater and bays?

oh nice, I did not expect it to be that cheap. that is going to open a lot of possibilities so I may be able to fit a 16ft! You just need to make sure to order the right size for the tubing to fit in... Amazon & eTrailer has a lot of different sizes. I've made a lot of those in my shop, and most ar...

Trailer looks good!... You done a great job on it! The trailer is ready for its inspection other than the fenders. A sheriff deputy told me that law mandates that trailers must have fenders in Georgia. As soon as I get me a 55 gal. Metal drum, that problem will be solved. A 55 gal' plastic drum woul...

They make trailers with the folding hitch so they will fit into a garage. Not sure if that is an easy retrofit. Check out the trailer section. Yeah, or you can buy the kit to make your trailer tongue fold... I've made a lot of these. https://www.amazon.com/Fulton-HDPB330101-Fold-Away-Bolt-On-Traile...

There is ply-wood between the inner and outer layers of the transom that will rot and cause the hull to flex.Some guys just add a plate on the back instead of replacing the wood.

https://boston.craigslist.org/sob/boa/4802153073.html A little bigger than what you are looking for but a great deal down on the cape. Motor alone is worth at least $1500. That's a great deal!...
