My 10' Gamefisher build/work in progress.

External power source is a good idea I may have to consider that as well. I'm getting anxious to take the cover off for the winter and begin modding but winter has been in full swing here this month! Hopefully sometime in March things will settle down. On the subject of batteries.... I am planning t...

My 10' Gamefisher build/work in progress.

Thanks for your comments on the boat! About the fish finder. I found it easiest to completely take the fish finder out of the mount when in motion. I had it mounted near the oar locks on my boat so it can easily be seen from both seats. I just left the bracket blanked on and took the fish finder its...

My 10' Gamefisher build/work in progress.

Thanks! I too like the stance of it in the water! haha. For the little 2.2hp it certainly moves! I recently picked up a 6hp for the boat so that should be fun! Hanging on to the 2.2 as well as she's been good to me! For anyone interested... Here's a short video of the 2.2hp outboard on my boat pushi...

My 10' Gamefisher build/work in progress.

Thanks for your comment. I don't consider this to be an awe worthy boat compared to the other builds on here which make my little boat look like a joke haha. But she's mine and she finds the fish so it makes me happy. I used Rustoleum truck bed liner which has a smoother texture so there's no drag l...

Has anyone tried the Mossy Oak carpet from Walmart?

Forgive me if there has been a thread about this already, search turned up too vague. I was at Walmart today picking up something and walked through the Automotive isle (near the seat covers and such) I spotted a couple rolls of Mossy Oak camo 'replacement carpet'. I forget the exact measurements bu...

Flex seal ?

I see a lot of the guys who bash it haven't even tried it but doubt it because it's an "As seen on TV product". GRANTED, most of the stuff is cheap junk... I've used Flex-Seal and it does work.. Like with any spray on product, prep is key. Once you have a clean toothy surface you apply LIGHT coats, ...

My 10' Gamefisher build/work in progress.

Interesting, surprisingly I've yet to complain about the stability of mine. Not as stable as my old flat bottom but I can stand up in the middle & cast without worrying about falling in Haha standing up towards the bow is a little more tipsy Haha. But I usually don't stand up unless I'm spotting fis...

My 10' Gamefisher build/work in progress.

Thank you so much for your comments! My build is a joke compared to most of the boats on this site but it's perfect for what I wanted. thanks for the props on the setup! I do plan to put a carpeted floor and some storage in the spring as well which should make it look a bit nicer. I don't plan to pu...

Painting an outboard, looking for tips.

Looking to spruce up an older late 80s Johnson 6hp I picked up for the tinny, Under the cowl she's clean but the paint and decals have seen better days. I already plan to order a decal set from ebay when paint is done so that part is solved. I'd like to rejuvenate the cosmetics of the motor, being a...

My 10' Gamefisher build/work in progress.

I like your Gamefisher. Up until this summer, I had a 12' Gamefisher with a 3.9hp Mercury on it. That thing would go 6mph no mater how much weight you put in it. How much is this shrink wrap stuff that you used? Thanks for the comments! and yea mine moved alone very nicely with just the 2.2hp so I ...

My 10' Gamefisher build/work in progress.

Figured I'd update the thread with a few new pics. The boat and motor did great all season, used it up until November before winterizing and putting away for the winter. I ended up picking up a fish finder for it, only got to use it a couple of times before the season ended but it was nice to get to...

AUGUST PHOTO CONTEST "Self Portait" TIME TO VOTE!

Feels like I've been sabotaged! haha. I was the second entry this month but here's my picture again. I'm assuming Fender mistakenly deleted it while deleting the non picture posts. :mrgreen: No worries. On this day this was the first fish I caught on my tin in a while so I was overly excited and dec...

your boat is coming out very nice. I have a question for you thought you said in one of your posts that you caulked up the seams at the bottom what did you use because i would like to seal the seams on my 12 ft also just to make me feel better when i take it out. thanks I used 3M 5200 There were no...
