'88 16ft V mod. muskiecraft

Hey all, I private message brought me back to the forum and I thought I would give an update for anyone questioning the paint I decided to use. Bottom line is its great! I have had no flaking, pealing, or anything like that. I have run the boat to a dead stop by driving up on a sandbar once #-o and ...

Transom thru hull? Plastic/Polyurethane vs Bronze fittings?

Sorry to hijack the thread, but hopefully some others will find this info useful... Is there any need to use hard PVC, or can flexible tubing be used for the entire drain and fill lines. It looks like Perchin used a combo of flexible tubing and PVC. Flexible tubing can be used for all of the lines ...

How to mount a transducer without putting holes in the boat

any ideas on how to do it "redneck" style, and wing it with cheap household or easy to buy items? If you look at how a humminbird transducer mounts you will see that it can flip up if it bangs on something. This will prevent it from breaking. I would think that other brands have similar designs. I ...

This might be a dumb question, but where might I look to have the brazing work done locally? I don't want to just add rivets and the boat I'm buying has a VHF radio antennae, and grab rails that are coming off, to just name a couple things. Any HVAC company could probably do it for you. I don't kno...

I had one other question. Where did you buy all of the aluminum angle? How much $$ do you think you had in just the aluminum? I may have to copy your paint job. I wanted to go with rusto because of the availability and price, and when looking at their colors, I think you picked the best color combo...

Is that bow light LED also? I LOVE the extension cord reel used for anchor rope idea, awesome! :D Good job man! Yes, I picked up the Bow light off a clearance shelf somewhere along the way. Cord reel works great. We don't have enough room to have anchor ropes laying all over the place in our rigs.

Power Pole

How about manual? https://www.stickitanchorpins.com/brake.html My next jon will have one of these for sure. I have one of these and its great. I plan to add a second so i can pin the bow and transom for current/winds. Make sure you attach a float to it cause they sink. :shock: https://i99.photobuck...

These two images should give you a clear picture of how the front and pack portion of the rod holders would work. They are still in place and if I ever want to use them I could just finish the access hatch to have access to them. As you can see from the picture I have enough room under the decking t...

I still have some work to do, but other then changing the rear seat mount and installing a bow trolling motor I am most...

1981 16’ Starcraft Seafarer

If you haven't mounted this yet, I found that 3M 5200 didn't stick to it when I applied mine. I ended up redoing this plate using JB Weld after 3 of the 4 holes behind it leaked on my boat. While looking for a fix for this, https://sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-ash1/hs543.ash1/31763_1398342473389_...

I have gone off shore and caught Mahi a few times and I have surf fished the beach a number of times but I haven't dropped a line in any freshwater down here yet. I plan to soon though. I am going with the "high speed" build now since I put this entire project on hold 1/2 way through the winter and ...
