Post by Justaguy442 »

Just found this site a few days ago and amazed at all the great info on here.

Here is my tin boat. Its a mid 70's ( im sort of guessing ) Princecraft 14 foot with a 1996 Evinrude 15 hp fourstroke. I bought the boat/trailer and motor separate in late fall so i haven't even had it on the water yet. I have a fully decked out LUND ( posted below )i bought new and it has everything but im really excited about going back to basics and hitting all the small back lakes .

Picked this puppy up for 800 bucks last year. Can't wait for this weather to break so I can get her back out on the water. Added some interior deck lights and new storage hatches over the winter.

My restored 14ft 1960 Alumacraft FD.
Motor is a 1982 Johnson 35hp long shaft, I built the adjustable jack plate using 6x6x.25 aluminum and glued up the wood block using multiple layers of 1/4 marine plywood.
The auxiliary motor is a 1956 Johnson 3hp, it has brought me back to the ramp when I had a carb float failure six miles down a river.
Tilt trailer with center walkway was home built in the 1960s, axles are from a 1962 Ford Falcon.
Non slip blue Durbak Marine Coating in the bottom of the hull, color matched automotive polyurethane paint on the bench tops, both applied over self etching primer.
Video links below show additional details.
Hydraulic tilt unit is a 1970s Dole Fluid Products with a manual hand pump.
Up front is a 1950s D.E. Rice anchor control with 100 feet of 1/8 in stainless aircraft cable.
Casting deck holds trolling battery inside the box that the vintage folding swivel seat is mounted to.
There is a hinged door in the deck floor to access below deck storage.
The steering unit is a Helm-Rite aftermarket from when the boat was new.
The lights are vintage J.W. Speaker G5520, upgraded with 50w halogen sealed beam spots, the brackets are oar lock extenders from Fisheries Supply. Lights can either fold in or be removed when not needed.
Coleman Lantern mount and fish finder mount are Tite-Lok.

This is my skinny water boat.
It is a 1988 Electric Feather Pirogue made by Fin & Feather Boats.
Boat has a flat bottom, is stable enough to stand in and will float in 10 inches of water.
It has a built-in 27lb thrust trolling motor, bilge, running lights.
I built a motor mount for a 1956 Johnson 3hp to get upstream and to conserve battery.
Also have added fish finder, rod and paddle mounts.
Ice chest is converted into a live well

Here is a video clip where I use the Johnson to move to the other side of a cove and then use the electric motor to close in on fishing spot.

Sent the little Sea King from my thread "One man's junk" down the road today. Got a new to me blank canvas Harber Mfg 12 ft. This one is substantially deeper and wider than One man's junk and should serve well for it's intended purpose of being a second boat for my boys on fishing trips. It will ride on top of my 16' Naden when trailering. It's always exciting to get a new boat no matter what it is. Can't wait to try it out![ external image ][ external image ][ external image ]

Wow you have one heck of a view from your deck! Wait a little longer and the rain may make your boats float!

That boat is "lit". Any interest in selling?

Recent river trip in the Electric Feather. Motored up stream with the 3 hp Johnson and then ran the built in trolling motor while fishing back down stream. Installed a digital motor controller with infinite adjustable speeds and consumes less battery power at lower speeds. Seven hours on the water and still had charge in the 35Ah BCI Group U1 battery! Fishing sucked but what a great day on the river.
