Default re: Check out my yacht!! (Fishing boat build thread)

Well shes all registered an legal as of yesterday so the wife and I finally took her out on her maiden voyage tonight. She wont win any races but that old motor gets her moving pretty good. We were on teh water for about an hour and the motor ran perfect and the boat is water tight. Time to get my fish on!

Well today I was going to repack the wheel bearings on the trailer and when I popped the caps off water poured out of the hubs on both sides so I replaced the wheel bearings and seals and then I proceeded to grind the rust scale off the trailer and then paint it. I also added markers poles to make it easier to see the trailer behind my truck.

before:






After:










I realized after looking at these pics that I really need to clean my garage! lol

Looks a lot better, and your garage isn't nearly as bad as mine, lol. Did you put some bearing buddies on there?

get some High pressure sodium lights set up on the front with a generator and use that little boat to shoot some carp at night. Im almost done building a 1448 jon boat to be used strickly for carp

----------

from bare hull to almost finished boat. I gotta get the new points and condensors in the motor and get some material to cover my raised platform. I have a 16' deep v and these little boats are more fun at times to fish out off. By the way i got the exact same boat as you sitting at my parents house in there pond
