1994 Sea Ark 20 foot Pointed-nose Utility??

the dude, Fyi, the 2072 (YEP, I've confirmed what model # that the hull is.) is in GOOD shape needing only a sanding smooth/repainting, installation of the OB motor(s), new batteries, the Marine Radio, etc. = IF I could get a clean title to the boat/trailer, it could be ready to fish in 2 weeks or s...

1994 Sea Ark 20 foot Pointed-nose Utility??

To All, This afternoon about 1630, I heard again from the executor of the estate. - "I'm just not interested in trying to get another court order, so that you can get the title. SORRY for the inconvenience." So I guess that, that's that. And I've wasted a lot of hours for ZILCH, NADA, NOTHING. yours...

18hp 1962 Evinrude Fastwin question

Pappy, NICE green Super Seahorses!!! I'd bet everything in my pocket that that's a OB that "had a serious problem" & was put-together from Johnson spare parts. - I would be interested to know what powerhead that is & what the actual HP is. (Inasmuch as those OBs really aren't either "rare" or "colle...

1994 Sea Ark 20 foot Pointed-nose Utility??

the dude, Do you happen to know how much a "bonded title" costs to get in TX?? (NOT only is it EXPENSIVE, NOT always successfully applied for & but often takes a LONG time to get a title.) A member of our service club was quoted MORE, than the boat/motor/trailer would be worth, for a bond. As I'm 72...

whorrall, THANK YOU. = I'll go look there. (The executor of the estate said that NOBODY at the courthouse was interested in even talking about another court order to get the title.) My grandfather would have said that I didn't get the title because, "You weren't holding your mouth right." yours, tex...

18hp 1962 Evinrude Fastwin question

Pappy,

My GUESS is that somebody repaired the Evinrude OB by changing a out the powerhead for an earlier year model JOHNSON unit.
(Perhaps the original power-head was RUINED by NOT using the proper gas/oil mixture??)

18hp 1962 Evinrude Fastwin question

adam_mac84, Fwiw, electric-start 18HP OBs (at least here in South TX) are "scarcer than hen's teeth" & 200-300 each (in repairable shape) is about what they will bring to power the larger tin John-boats. Also, I have NEVER had any difficulty with SIERRA PARTS from our local NAPA Auto parts house. = ...

Billinthedesert, FYI, I spent more than 3 hours today on the phone with senior staffers of Texas Legislators & Senators, working to get a GOOD/REASONABLE "abandoned & antique boats" law passed THIS Spring.

Billinthedesert, YEP. = That's WHY I'm doing my best to get the current STUPID law repealed & to allow boats over 40 years old to be titled/lawfully registered. Fwiw, I know where a BEAUTIFUL 1958 model 17-foot Chris-Craft inboard runabout is up in my part of NE Texas & that has been on Glass Club L...

FREE: 1956 Lone Star Clipper project

Billinthedesert, WISHING that you had a title, as I owned a similar 1955 Lone Star. - It would cost more than the little rig is worth restored to ever get a TX title. = Our current title law is STUPID when the boat is 40-80 years old. (Been there, did that, didn't have a good time.) Right now, I hav...

EIGHTY-EIGHT POUND CATFISH CAUGHT in KY!!!

Billplayfoot, Fwiw, BLUE & FLATHEAD catfish grow MUCH bigger than that. - The largest Blue that I know of was caught by a commercial netter in SC. - It weighed over 120#. I once SAW a catfish, that swam past my little 10-foot pram that was more than HALF as long as the boat. - I would guess that it ...
