1981 Fisher 15 ft

Looking good! I did a mod with a 1975 Fisher. (posted here) Looks like they did not change them a whole lot between 75 and 81. Look forward to seeing what you do with it.

In need of advice/ answers for my boat project, 1st timer

Steelflex is a good option for the bottom of your boat. It is a little painful to apply but it was worth it in my case. You can see it in my build and many others on this site. You also will not have to worry about leaks if you use it. Just noticed you wanted something "paintable" though, so steelfl...

1975 Fisher Marine Bateau 1438 Mod -**NEW PICS OCT 16**

Dude. I am wow'd. That is a nice looking piece of floatery. This thread specifically answered many questions i had reguarding how to do my own rig. I really like the rod holder you've got going on there. I couldnt really come up with any conclusions on how to keep mine secure, and from rattling aro...

Vulkem 116

Has anyone ever heard of this product, or better yet tried it on an aluminum boat? My family is trying to fix up an old 10ft johnboat and I told them to take it to a welder first to fix the transom. (has 2 or 3 cracks in it) The welding shop told them no problem and they would put this product on th...

1975 Fisher Marine Bateau 1438 Mod -**NEW PICS OCT 16**

how in the world did you apply your steelflex so perfectly!? i did the bottom of my tracker 1436 and it absolutely looks like garbage and annoys the crap out of me lol Thanks, it was painful. I did one thin coat, and then a thick coat. On both coats I would walk around the boat and brush out any ru...

New to me 1975 25hp Johnson

bbguy, I have the exact same motor. You can see my thread in my signature. I have went through several issues in the thread but a few more that are not in the thread so let me know if you have any issues. I don't know everything about the motor but there is a fair chance I have toyed around with it....

Fisher 15/38 project

Jonmac, did you remove your knee brace in order to replace your transom? If you did, what did you use to put it back in? Yours looks identical to mine except mine has some of that textured aluminum like your side panels over the inside of the transom. I did not remove mine. I was able to bend it ou...

Fisher 15/38 project

I replaced mine with those same sheet metal screws. I went and bought stainless (1 size bigger than origianl since some were a little bored out) Mine were same as yours, I had some that had the heads almost totally rusted off but it took 35 years to get to that point and almost none of the surroundi...

1975 Fisher Marine Bateau 1438 Mod -**NEW PICS OCT 16**

In your last post that included pictures, there is one picture showing the rod tips running under the front deck. In that picture, it looks as though there is some uniform texture to the panel. Is it a textured aluminum with paint over it? I've already started a thread with pics of the tearout. I d...
