1751 Polar Kraft reservoir boat

What speeds have you logged? Sick build! Thank you!! When the motors were brand new, I would hover between 6 and 6.2 at blast off with two people and an empty livewell. Now that they are two years old, we are 5.8 to 6mph.... I tried 2 Kipawa props on the rear and they were the same or a little slow...

Ok folks....my boat has been finished for almost two years now and overall I'm still pretty happy with it!! Looking at repainting the deck this off season...the Tuff Coat was OK, but the rubber particles come out easily. Any suggestions on another type of paint?? Or....do you guys think another coat...

Minn Kota onboard charger installation

Yep, those square drill bits are expensive!! I bolted a piece of 1/4 plastic inside one of my battery compartments....drilled holes in the metal behind the plastic where the bolts were for the charger.....and then bolted the charger to the plastic. Keeps the charger from touching the aluminum at all.

2000 1448 Grizzly Trolling Motor Mounting Question

Build your own... I built mine out of .100 sheet aluminum and took it to a local welder. It took him 20 minutes and charged me 40 bucks.

I have been very lazy on updating here, but the boat is pretty much done. Final assembly Saturday and on the water Sunday afternoon. These are some random pictures that I took....like I said, I got lazy.

1751 Polar Kraft reservoir boat

out of curiosity, what did you end up using for the insulation under your deck? im interested in using something under mine when i get to that step, just to cut down on the noise/drum effect that you get when you enclose a space. A buddy of mine had access to a bunch of closed cell packing that jus...

More work done tonight....

Got some of my holes drilled for my rods. I'm going to come in with another row of holes later after I finish the rear deck/livewell area. I used golf club tubes for the inserts. I also cut the hole for my switch panel and the wiring in the side panel.
