    I'm from the Foothills of NC, So I bought this Gheenoe back in Dec 2018. My plan was to us it for duck hunting, lakes, small rivers and streams, also to do some fishing. Took it to Fontana Lake, NC and stayed on a Houseboat, got there using a trolling motor. I purchased a used, 5HP 4...

    Any ideas on where to go with this? Understand, I will use this primarily for long runs and three day camping trips in the glades 3-4 months a year. Thinking about a side console, mini jacker, new 30 hp Suzuki, 2-6 gallon tanks on each side in back under deck, leave “left” livewell, convert...
  3. Boat Yard Basics
    Hello all- here is the latest update on my 1977 MFG skiff rebuild project- well due this corona craziness here in Ohio I’ll be working from home for a while so... time to get to work on this project! First thing first, the rotten transom- I’m glad I open it all up as the old wood came out like...

    Progress has been slow on my 14ft stumpknocker skiff rebuild. School, work and lack of funds has me working at crawl. But, as of now I have my stringer glassed, and bottom side of my marine plywood decking glassed with 7.5 oz biax and epoxy. Plan on “gluing” it to the stringers within the next...

    First time poster but have done a lot of lurking. I’m currently removing the deck and stringers/foam from an old 14 foot stumpknocker. I plan to totally rebuild the stringer and the floor, along with removing original storage hatches and replace with a back deck and front deck to serve as...

    I am looking at purchasing a Beavertail (B2?) in my area and it appears to be one of the hulls that Beavertail splashed from the HB Waterman hull. My question is this: Can the Beavertail hull be considered to perform as good as a Waterman? Any Beavertail/Waterman owners feel free to chime in...

    Hey guys, my dad and I are fixing up a 91' super skiff that was originally a lodge layout with a tiller set up. We are adding a Mitzi center console soon and hoping to glass in a rear deck and was wondering if anyone could help me out with our layout dimensions. I was wondering what: the...

    Hi all, I have a Monark 1440 classic, I got my hands on it a few years ago (when it was white) and have been making small modifications to it ever since. I would like to do an overhaul on it now. I want to take the deck off (starting to get a few soft spots anyway), seal any leaking rivets in...

    I recently purchased a 15' Johnsen type skiff that I am starting to rebuild. I want it to float as shallow as possible, but I do not want to power the boat with only a 10 or 15 HP. The build itself is going to add more weight than I would like, so I was thinking about adding sponsons. Has anyone...
  10. Outboard Maintenance
    I have a 50 hp 2003 Yamaha 2 stroke on my Dolphin renegade that was recently re bored and new pistons put on. Motor ran great through break in without issue until it bogged down (wouldn't go above 3500rpm) and i took it back to the mechanic. He gave it back to me two weeks ago "tuned up" and i...
  11. Outboard Maintenance
    Does anyone know where I can find a Carb kit for a F25 - model number F25ESH. date of manufacture 6/05. does this make it a 2005? It has a stutter when I give it full throttle. Carb kits are cheap and I can cross that off the troubleshooting list and it'll be good piece of mind. The previous...
