Rebirth of the Tin

Hey, what's the model of the boat and the size of it (length and width of floor)? The boat is an '80, Travler Sea Nymph. I am fairly sure it was one of the possible prototypes for the Bass Tracker and they didn't get the bid. Could have been that it was "too much boat" in my opinion. This boat was ...

24" deep, then gets less within 5' of the bow.

Rebirth of the Tin

Let me start off by saying again... WoW! You are building a fishing machine! I noticed your wood is cut to fit just right, but are you planning on carpetting it while the wood is in the boat? Seems like most people wrapped the carpet on the edges of the wood, and was wondering if that was your plan...

Rebirth of the Tin

Long day today. I was able to install the front deck with it's hinges, and install the side storage panels. https://i248.photobucket.com/albums/gg198/CrappieReaper/BoatFrontDeck005.jpg https://i248.photobucket.com/albums/gg198/CrappieReaper/BoatFrontDeck006.jpg I have a bit more of sheet metal work,...

From Tiller to Steering Console

I remember reading a post on here a while back about a guy who bought a boat to mod with a console and he ripped it out and changed to tiller steer. May have been CrappieReaper? Might do a search for it, i think he was looking to give it all away.... I did remove the console in my rebuild, "Rebirth...

Pin style Pedestal help when you can't use washers and nuts

Preach, I'm going to go with some SS tapered wood screws for my rig. I can't get to mine either. This is why I have doubled up the plywood in the areas of the seat pedestals. I will be able to bolt the forward seat base, but, the four bases I am going to mount to the floor deck, will just have to be...

Livewell Question in Arkansas Traveler V-Hull mod

I don't think the bubbles would work to keep your fish alive - it takes a lot of oxygen to keep them healthy during the dog days of summer! As far as recirculation, I would just get a bilge pump and use 1/2 or 3/4" pvc as my tubing. It would be easy to wire to a switch, then have the power to the s...

New Guy with a few questions

No one pointed out that the boat with pedestals pictured in an early reply were mounted to the floor, not the benches. I would not add pedestals to the benches as the center of gravity would be way high. I've seen a lot of nice mods on this board, but rarely see anyone warning about the possibility ...

Rebirth of the Tin

I forgot to mention that I plan to turn this boat into a tiller model. I want as much room inside the boat as possible. I came close to modifying it into a center console, but decided a tiller would be best. I currently have a '98, 60hp Mercury tiller that will do the trick. You should be in jail-B...

Rebirth of the Tin

Went to Mizzou for Neices wedding yesterday. Been running some pipe in the boat for the bilge and areators. Everything is 3/4" schedule 40 pvc and reinforced 3/4" hose. I ran the rigid pvc everywhere I could so as not to have a hose close up on me where I couldn't reach it without tearing something ...
