1981 14r sea nymph... here I go again (update 4-28-12)

Your mod looks awesome though man. Great work!
The higher sides are nice, but I miss my Alumacraft it was a great ride. Thanks Dman.

Put some more to the ole' tin boat over the week. I added the rod holder planks and anchor light plus added carpet to the back bench seat. Here's a video of me fishing in it Friday, you can get a good idea of the layout. https://youtu.be/mj0H4T3lDMs

Old-School Alumacraft Rebuild

Nice old Alumacraft Goundshock I rebuilt one similar, what I did is screwed some plywood into the middle supports, and you would want to beef up the gaping between the wood and the aluminum with some foam board. Keep the middle channel clear for water flow to the back. There is a drawnig on my boat ...

1981 14r sea nymph... here I go again (update)

I had some more time to work on the boat so I started in on the casting deck, and finished up the transom, mounted the motor. I'm getting ready to carpet it so I can start using it and save on my fuel cost. I love my big boat, but it loves gas. Plus I need my handlining rig done, the walleye are goi...

1981 14r sea nymph... here I go again

I'm just going to use it and work on it when I can now fishing season is hear. I don't have as much time to get it done like it should be, so it will be a slow process I imagine. I will update as things happen.

Thanks for the advice to =D> Its always welcomed

You opened that Alumacraft like a country mile. It looks awesome. Did you get a chance to run it yet? I was curious on the stability of the boat.

1981 14r sea nymph... here I go again

Yes Mad dog it's a bit wider and it is higher. That is one reason why I wanted to sell the Alumacraft it only had 16" side all the way around. This one is 22" with a 16" transom for the short shaft motor. Yes fishingmich it does have a v shape but not to extreme. I didn't want to give up any more he...
