Talk about anything that floats your boat (no pun intended). This is general talk about anything not related to boating/fishing.

Name is Thomas AKA Sweettfisher, from Columiba SC. Found the site recently and been lookin at it about everyday since. I have a 1974 1442 Monark Mod V with 95' 40hp Johnson. I like goin fast in skinny water and catchin big fish. Already got tons of ideas from this site. Look for projects threads from me in the near future.

Posted this on the picture thread first...then found this one.

Hi All,

Just put a deposit on a 77' Starcraft 1258V. I think it was called a seafarer then but the new ones are just 12' utility boats. I may have paid too much but he said the boat was his dads and looks well cared for and the trailer is almost new (New paint on frame, axle, hubs/wheels, tires, fenders, lights, ball hitch, bunks and rollers, ALL new) and has a title on the trailer but not the boat and Im paying $800. I dont care if its too much really cause I'm excited about it either way. This is my first boat ever and its long over due.

I am from Gwinnett County, GA and seen a few of you on here nearby, however I have just moved to Florida for work and I am staying in a camp ground on the Wekiva River near Orlando. Everyone here has a boat so it didn't take me long to get the itch. I started looking on Craigs List and after a few weeks of searching till my eyes would bleed I found this.

It will be 2 or 3 weeks before I can pay the guy off and get the boat in the water and it is killing me...which is what lead me here. Last night was up till 3am looking at mods.... :shock:

These are the pics from the craigs list add and all I have for now.

So far I plan to put 12v transom mount trolling motor for the main drive untill I can get a proper 9.9. I can get the BPS Prowler T55/40 for $199 or the Minn Kota Endura 55/42 for $254. I am on a tight budget but I like the composit shaft with lifetime warranty on the Minn. Any thoughts comments, etc... would be great!

Anyway Glad I found this place. It's great and lots of guys from GA for when I take this thing home.

New from Florida!! Just picked up a Sea Nymph 14' x 32" with trailer for $200. Not sure what I'm going to do with it yet, boat is a little rough but the trailer is in pretty good shape, main reason I bought it.

Hi All

I just joined today as I was looking for information on how to fix a leak in my 16' duranautic. I also just purchased a 18'SS starcraft (1983) almost in prestine condition. It came with a 75 chrysler which I replaced with 90HP Yamaha 4-stroke (used 05). I love both boatsand fish both freash and saltwater. I live in New York State (Please don't hold this against me !!!) about 90 miles north of manhattan. I fish freshwater lakes in CT. and can be out fishing for Stripers in the Sound in an Hour. (launch out of westport area)
I'm going to take some time now and get use to this site.

regards
Bill
