Pictures of your 1st Tin

Got one that looks just like it but this is an old lund, 14ft also with a 15hp mariner. Had this combo for maybe 22 years or so. Now I have a fisher. Never have bought one new.

(engine looks like a wreck but runs great)
Used to have 1972 14ft Lund w 1977 15hp Mariner
(engine looked great but always ran marginal)

They are awesome little boats. It floated like a cork! I didn't want to but I sold it and got a boat for the river. It's a Grumman with a jet motor.

Not my first, but my 2nd. It was my first new boat. A Sea Nymph Fisherman 146 SC. 13'11" long with a 25 hp Rude. For me this was an example of trying to put a quart in a pint pot. Very tight and tippy to fish out of. Sold it after a year.

This was my introduction to tin boats. You just can't beat the dollars to fun ratio on these boats!

Here was my first tin. She was a 1436 Lowe with a 18hp fastwin. Had it for a year before I sold it to my cousin and picked up a few more tins.

Here it is when we met at the lake and I handed it off to him. It was such a simple boat and I kinda miss it still.

Here's mine sitting in the driveway when I got back from Afghanistan a few years ago. Wife bought it for me as a suprise. And let me tell you, I sure was. Both the boat and the wife are running strong, and I still enjoy both as well.
1542 Tracker LW, Trailstar trailer, and 15hp Johnson pull start - fantastic combo.

This is my first tin. 1968 Buddy boat. It was passed down from my father-in-laws dad (wife's grand-dad), to her uncle, to me. I had stripped down the old paint on the boat and trailer, put a floor in it and a nice Johnny 9.9. In that bottom picture, my dads fishing vest is hanging off the front seat.

Wife's grand-dad is in the nursing home with Alzheimer's and Dad has passed. Of course now I am regretting getting rid of her.
