Post by Flashoverman »

Very nice work! I was wondering what brand and model the seats are. I'm looking at buying some that look similar to yours. Are they plenty soft? How is the back support? I often fish with a buddy who has to sit for pretty much the whole day. Are they hi or low back? How much do they weigh? Sorry to flood you with questions but, I have to mail order mine and I want to get it right the first time if I can help it. Thanks for any help you can offer.

No problem. Sorry about the slow response... I was away on vacation during the holiday... The seats are comfortable. I'm not sure how long of a day you are planning, but I have sat in them for hours at a time and been totally fine with them. They are Lo-Back seats, and are quite cushiony (if that's a word). Back support is what I expected from a lo-back seat. I have back problems and they are fine with my back, and I'm 6'3" tall. We really haven't used the stand-up pedestal seat all that much, yet... but it is really comfortable and sturdy as well. I've only taken the boat out a handful of times so far. Here is the link to the seats that I purchased. It gives the dimensions and description for you to look at. It doesn't say the weight, but I would guess between 3-5 lbs with the seat plate screwed into the bottom.

A 1990-2001 model Nissan/Tohatsu 18hp weighs the same as the 9.9 or 15hp. Around 80#s, and they run with most 25hp engines. Best power to weight ratio in my opinion. I can promise you an 18 would push that boat at least 25mph, probably better than 30 if I had to guess.

I got the cover from Bass Pro... It is not a Bass Pro brand though. For the life of me I can't think of the manufacturer but I will check it when I get home from work. I bought the 14 ft one, and it works perfectly. I will tell you that i have to keep my seats on though, or else it is too baggy on top and water will pool in the recesses of the boat. With the seats on and the cover tied down with the provided rope and eyelets, water just rolls right off. It comes with a bag to keep the cover in, two bungees, a rope to tie down, and the seam around the cover has an internal bungee to keep it snug around the outside of the boat. It also has covered vents in it to allow moisture to escape without letting any in. Couldn't ask for more from a cover - very pleased. Kept her dry on many a Florida thunderstorm so far. Here is the link if you would like to order...

Thanks for the advice man. I am still actively looking for an outboard, but the funds are kind of low right now from the holiday season.

The cover is made by "Classic Accessories". The logo has the letter "A" inside a letter "C". Hope that helps. i bought it from bass pro.

Thanks! I got them from Bass Pro, at $3.99 each. I went the cheap route, because other brands/sizes/styles were much more expensive. Had the boat on the water 6 months now, and haven't had a problem with the hatch pulls breaking or wearing. They are easy to install, just bore a hole into your material big enough to fit the backing and screw down on the top. Word of advice - they DO NOT come with the screws to screw them in. It's okay - I got stainless steel screws for them. Four screws for each of the hatch pulls. Here is a link to the product on bass pro's website. Good luck with your build!

Oops. If you are talking about the hatch "hinges"... I got the hinges from the door and cabinet hardware aisle from home depot. I'm not sure the manufacturer, but they were stainless steel and so I picked them up. I got two different sizes (depending on the size of the hatch door), but both were really cheap. I think you can get a two-pack for under $4.00. I used two on each of my hatch doors and used stainless steel screws instead of the ones provided in the packaging...

about your boat cover & pooling water...
i built a frame out of 3/4" pvc pipe and it works like a charm - after several high wind and almost tornadoes, it keeps my 1542 bone dry inside and no water pools anywhere!
i even have my seats still on the boat, etc with the cover on.
for about $15 and a tiny bit of effort, totally pays off!

Since we live so close and you built a such a nice boat, you just set yourself up for failure. You have to help with mine :wink:

I know this is an old thread...just looking for a "long-term" report. How has everything held up over time?
