On Top or Below??

I think Top would also keep the Carpet intact around the hole better. I think after some where and use the carpet will start to fray and peel back at the hole. Also would be structurally better as the weight is pushing down and the Plate helps the entire area absorb the weight where as right now wit...

New Boat!!!! 1986 Sea Nymph Fishing Machine FM-161

Ive taken the boat out a couple of times now. My only issue no is that there is now too much weight at the back of the boat. If I am by myself or just have me and my daughter on the boat it jumps up and planes out very quickly but as soon as I add another adult to the weight it doesnt want to plane ...

Operation REVIVE!

Depends on your state and how their laws work. Im in FL and my jon boat I had previously was given to me by a buddy who had the boat for over 10 years. He never had the title so I had to take in a bill of sale and a letter signed by him stating they never registered the vessel as it was used on priv...

YJs 1236 Semi V Mod

24:1 is probably about right. I know on my old 1955 Rude I had it was originally 16:1 but with the development of TCWIII they released a publication to switch to 24:1 unless you were still using 30w as your primary 2-stroke oil. I always mixed mine a little heavy on the oil still just for the added ...

YJs 1236 Semi V Mod

Be careful what types of sprays you are using to test fire any engine. Especially a 2-stroke. Most starting fluids and cleaners are not oil based and therefore can cause cylinder wall and ring scoring due to insufficient lubrication. Even just a quick test fire can cause issues. Best thing to do to ...

Alumacraft 1236 Project

Great job on the boat!!!. And you gave me another idea for mine. I love the nylon strap handle idea for you hatch.

New Boat!!!! 1986 Sea Nymph Fishing Machine FM-161

Thanks guys. I don't mind gluing. I've done enough to make it a quick painless task for me now. I wasn't able to get a good pic with the hatches in place before it got dark. I'll get some tomorrow after work. Gotta put the rear section of decking on still but ran out of carpet glue. Wife is picking ...

Pics as promised. The deck is extremely solid. I surprised myself with how well the job has turned out and how fast it's going together.
