Just did "stuff," nothing remarkable, but it is a sweet ole boat. There's 50 lbs of weight forward, fastened to left hand side to keep front down and side to side weight compensated.

(jigngrub? got an impeller...thank you.)

Well, two days ago, a guy came and took the little 12 foot boat away from me. :(

He DID give me money for it, but still.

Now, all I have left is the 14ft Alumacraft, a 10.5ft Dagger Tupleo (29lbs) canoe, a kayak a friend asked me to store "just for a month or so" 16 years ago, and...er...hmmm...uh...a much abused and battered Golden Hawk (or Cranberry Creek) 12'9" Y-sterned canoe (which followed me home, honest!) Oh, and the 10hp '59 Johnson, the '54 3hp Evinrude, the '67(?) Clinton/sears (the ONLY year Clinton made a motor for Sears), the '64 5.5. Evinrude, and a couple of those electric motor things with a 70lb battery.

I bought boat with the Clinton and trailer , and sold just the boat. Small profit, but more important, the boat will get more use. AND, the trailer was modified yesterday to carry the Y-stern. Boy, does that canoe LOVE the 3 hp Evinrude!

In April, I was just an old guy who bought a fishing boat. What happened? :?

I blame this site, and you, you bunch of enablers, you.
