Sylvan Offshore 22'

Must be a 15 inch (short) shaft.

That's a 20" shaft. the boat is for OFF SHORE (thus the name) and his ridiculous freeboard!


THAT BOAT IS SO COOL!

First build - 16ft Duck Boat

Still need to paint the inside of the boat to match the outside, install the anchor light and install the cig lighter. The captains seat is the only thing I am debating whether to fork out the cash for a brand new pedestal seat or just build a small open box. Minimal stuff from here on out. Sept 1s...

07 1860 Roughneck Rebuild and questions

Looks like a duckboat. Nice work, and excellent handling of a sandy problem. I would have been livid if that happened to me! But we can only take things one step at a time, right?

very nice work, that paint came out nice and flat.

Cashew's 11' SeaMaid

Cool, glad to see another duck boat on the site, we will take over... eventually. consider decking over and making cockpit coamings to keep errant waves out of the boat. Should work great for small water no matter what you do with it. I recommend the hunters specialties flat enamels, I have had grea...

1993 mercury 15hp hard starting in the cold -

I have this motor on my (new, small) duck boat - it has been getting harder and harder to start the first time (cold, 32deg) the colder it gets. It takes many (like 20 the other day, like 40 today) the more times i pull the recoil, eventually it does start, but it runs half a second or less, then di...

New Alumacraft V16 Build - Consoles, Electronics, Trailer

great project, love the console and windshield. I bet the 40hp is a big improvement. Yamahas are great motors. that is a sharp looking boat.

23' Lone Star Cruise Liner Conversion...adding strength?

I definetely have love for the fins...just not for this project. :wink: I could honestly say that if it was a normal lake boat, the stringers would likely be fine. I've seen alot of other ones that were in perfect shape. I just tend to build my stuff excessively strong...for tsunamis and such. :D I...

A Pic of my 13 foot duck boat under construction

Honestly, I'd leave it the way it is if all you use it for is mobility. The pods are great but it's probably cheaper for you to buy a used 14 Jon than add pods to a 13', if you watch Craig's enough.

Looks good. My next boat will be a 19 crestliner. Something with a forward console, like an old Norseman.

1977 Johnson 85hp lower unit compatibility

I've already done that, disconnected cable and shifted it in by hand. The friction of the water around the prop prevents it from shifting into gear. Ie it will shift and turn fine running on a hose, but not on the lake.

My cables are brand spankin, and the adjustments are correct.

1977 Johnson 85hp lower unit compatibility

Did a google search and came up dry. Any ideas what used ones I can bolt on? I have lost reverse on mine, it just never catches. In warm water conditions it sometimes will, but I need this sucker running at 100%
