    Hi guys, This is my first post here so any feedback would be appreciated. I’ll be visiting Antigua at the start of the new year and am planning on bringing my 8wt & 11wt fly rods. Does anyone have any experience wade fishing for bones/permit/tarpon? I’ll have access to a car so I can do a fare...

    Hey all, I have a cruise in feb that is stopping at Princess cays Bahamas, Falmouth Jamaica, GTU Turks and Caicos, and Grand Cayman. It looks like Princess Cay Bahamas might have some DIY fly fishing possibilities and I have no clue about the rest. Anyone have any experience doing this? My...

    Recently found out a friend of mine has an original Kennedy craft mold at his house in the panhandle of FL. My buddy has given me permission to pull a hull off the mold. I’m pretty excited for this build! Have done some minor fiberglass work but nothing ever to major. Any tips and tricks are...

    Added some spray rails to my 2004 Famous Craft. Cost was less than $100 and can be done with very basic tools. Jigsaw, a few clamps, a little sanding and you’re good to go. Bought a couple PVC boards from lowes, 8’ long and 6” wide. Free hand a couple angles on the ends and jigsaw cut them to...

    This post is for showing off the project/s you finished this spring. I know there are many talented individuals on this site. Photos are recommended, but not required. DIYs should be fishing related. No flies tied, lures crafted, or boats built, please. Those items, while enjoyable to see...
  6. Boat Yard Basics
    Howdy, all! I got this awesome little b-52 for $950 and it’s in very sound shape besides the previous owners attempt to extend the gunnel walls after he built a floor in the bottom. They had damage, so I removed all of it — almost. Will remove the rest here tomorrow. —> I’d like to replace...
  7. Boat Yard Basics
    This is my first post so sorry if it’s in the wrong section but i have recently gotten a small 12ft fiberglass boat that I have been working to make into a small fishing skiff. Currently i’m doing well on the repairs but I haven’t been able to figure out how to put seats in. It is designed as a...

    Hi everyone, I recently got my first gheenoe and Ive been looking at getting a grab bar. I find a lot of “metalworx” grab bars but was wondering if there were any other styles other than the U shape or any different ideas that y’all have done?

  10. Boat Yard Basics
    Hi everyone, new skiff owner here. My center console on my boat is coming off. It doesn't have any screws bolting it to the hull. It seems to either be plastered or somehow attached to the hull with fiberglass or something (I don't know). How can I fix this? Is there any way I cant attach...
  11. Boat Yard Basics
    So I came across a 97 River Hawk that has been sitting for a long time. I gotta test the motor before I think about buying it, but the hull has a layer of something on the fiberglass that is chipping off. Is this gelcoat from the original cast? Is it worth fixing? It also has a crack on the...

    Headed to Harbor Island for a week in June. I will be bringing a couple fly rods in pursuit of some DIY Bones. Wouldn't mind booking a guide for a day or two as well. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated!

    We are doing a family trip to Costa Rica, Manzanilla area in mid February. Of course I will bring a couple setups. I know there is a lodge there for tarpon. I was wondering if anyone has fished that area and knows of any diy flats that I can wade? Thanks

    I am headed down to the keys for the first week in May for a DIY tarpon trip. Does anybody have any tips they wouldn't mind sharing. Fly patterns or strategies or really anything.

    I'm headed to Orlando in early Feb for a work trip and would love some input on what to target on the fly and where for that time of year. I'm out of Texas and love chasing reds, would be happy to get into anything salty while I am out there. I'm fine with an hour or two drive to the coast...
  18. Outboard Maintenance
    I have a 1992 30 HP Yamaha 2 stroke electric start that is currently not starting. It tries to start when I use starting fluid but immediately dies once it burns off the fluid. This makes me think it isn't getting gas. Also when I prime the bulb it gets hard but a minute after I stopped pumping...

    Just picked up a cooler mount kit from Kennedy Tie Downs for my Kysek 50L. The mount is super low profile, when I say super low profile... I mean it... nothing to trip over like other versions or chocks... The kit mounts with screws or through bolts (with access) to the deck. The webbing is...

    Here it is a 1959 16' Elgin runabout.  Lucky for me most of the wood is already soft so it will be easier to gut. HA! My plan is to gut her and turn her into a flats boat.  Small flush with the gunwale side console with remote steering, 60 hp Yamaha 2 stoke, decks flush at current rub...
