Where do you keep your Boat?

Have any of you heard or been a part of, a boat slip coup. It was explained to me like a condo/coup where you own the slip and have access to the rest of the marina but only own/use the slip you own. Found one here that is for sale and reasonable and would keep my boat wet all the time. Galveston Ba...

UPDATE! Maybe tin no more

I had a stroke at 0, from an otherwise undiagnosed condition, which I was born with. (Basically I have weak veins.) I did have to change some things about my life. I miss some of them and found new ones. I have been searching for the "Perfect Boat." on here for a while now. The shorter (1036, and 12...

Where do you keep your Boat?

I am also asking in the larger boats, I know the whole point of a 1032 is you can take it anywhere?

Does any one leave it in salt water?

20' tinny Bayboat

I know the "believed" fact about tin boats are they are to loud. Lots of other facts about tin boats in the general fishing area. I wonder if the average 2072 is the same or similar hull as the Tinny Bayboats. I have an odd idea of how I want a boat set up. I often do not want all of the standard pa...

20' tinny Bayboat

Im on Galveston Bay. I have not seen a lot of conversation about the 20' bayboats here. Are the hull designs a lot different then the normal 2072? I can not tell but it looks like some of the bayboats are same Hull with different lay out and color.
Any experience?

Thanks for the response, I am in Houston, always just a turn to port from the Bay and the Gulf and a lot of busy shipping lanes.

Marine Radio

Who carries a marine radio on there small boat?

A hand held or a mounted one. One of the VHS radios to talk to boats or CG?

If so which one and opinion. I might be a gear nerd and I might just be cautious.

Tohatsu Initials

Thank you both, The transom is currently 22" so it has to be cut down and was leaning towards the higher gunnels over all. Might be safer might just feel safer.... Thank you for the pretty good guess about the initials. I was in that neighborhood, was wondering if they published a cross index. I pic...

Tohatsu Initials

I am breaking all the rules and building a small skiff out of wood, I hope no one here sets me on fire and burns me down. I am looking at outboards and think Tohatsu 20HP is the way to go. All the Tohatsu OB have a string of letters and numbers after them. Does anyone know how to interoperate those ...

Never ending search for perfect boat

I googled the Baker trailer, only found one boat sized trailer for sale, lots of huge goose necks and what not. I was just wondering if someone knew a sales place in Houston. So new kinda topic in the same vein. If you are going to stay with tiller steering, how large an Outboard would you be willin...

Never ending search for perfect boat

The Baker trailer looks pretty cool. I am guessing a 16 jon that is flat like one should be, would fit just fine on one and be easy ier to use on a bank over other kinds of trailer. Do you know if someone sells them in Houston?

Never ending search for perfect boat

Well now I asked for that ear full.

I was more asking about style, rigging, suspension type, used new are more expensive trailers worth the more money? painted AL galvanized?

But I hear that most of you like boats and hate trailers?
