Landau 1470 Deck Rebuild

Great job doc!!! My previous rig was the landau 1470 and it was a great boat. Like yours, both bench seats were removed in my boat. I didn't secure the sides well enough the first go round so I had some flex when I'd put my 20 hp on there. The second rebuild was tied together much better and I never...

New 2017 25hp 4 stroke efi yamaha

Well, it's mid March now. I ordered my Alumacraft utility boat at Cabela's on December 23rd, 2016. Still no boat, still no motor. Tick-tock-tick-tock... Yep, BPS and Cabela's (I guess they are now one, which is fitting) have pretty much been turned into a Walmart. I avoid them like the plague these...

GPS navigation/ what to buy

If I ever wind up getting a tin boat and using the rivers near my house I'd like a GPS device to show me approx. where I'm at. Is there any real reason when using rivers to get a marine exclusive GPS, I just need to see land masses and bodies of water so I knowhow far from home I've ventured. Prett...
