Alumacraft 1648 Project - Fishing with Eli

Post by trueblue1970 »

Thanks Gill. If you dont mind I may pick your brain a bit on this one. Being that it is a new setup I dont want to make as many mistakes (less holes the better) and have more patience. Again thanks...great job

I really like your 1648, simple, clean and very practical...nice! By the way, I like how organized your garage is too! =D>

The wife and I celebrated our 41st Anniversery this weekend and spent a little time on the water Sunday. Caught a nice little mess of bluegills and had a great afternoon.

Congratulation, Gilhunter. When me and my wife had our 20th anniversary I took here to Bangkok, China. And then on our 40th I went to pick her up. LOL

No, I use a swivel and a removeable mount. It's the same setup that I had on my last seats and it worked out pretty well.

That's how I am wanting to do mine. I was wondering if people have used them and are pleased with them. Sounds lik you are. Are those the 7" swivels? I could only find the setup for 7" swivels but then I could only find 6" swivels.

The swivels I have are 6". The bases I have will work with either one.

Nice, I've always thought the tempress brand looked comfortable and well made. If I could store my boat inside I might consider spending the extra $ to go with tempress.
