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

Post by jimmy fins »

I sold my Alumacraft for a boat load. :lol: Wasn't planning on it but the guy that came to buy my extra 8hp Honda liked the boat so much he came back for it 3 weeks later and made me a great offer. So out with the old and in with another rebuild!!!!! YES!!!! [-o< thank you. I will probably do the same thing like the Alumacraft just better material this time.

Congrats on making a good turnaround. Do it a couple times over and your boats will just get bigger and nicer! Cant wait to see how this one turns out.

Jimmy i stole your idea of using the pipe insulation, used it on my bow deck so that anyone fishing in the front could have a back rest and in other spots. I always have had a thing for the 14r i can tell you that i have had three in my life and used them for everything you can think of and they never failed. Got my eye on a 16r a friend has and someone is interested in the one we just finnished. Well good luck on this one you know i will be creepin in on your build!! :LOL2:
Is there a better feeling than saying "Get The Net" ????????

well I worked through the cold and snow and made some great progress. Still have much to do, but at least its usable for fishing. So between fishing and boat building it will be shining soon.

I have boat envy. Looking good JimmyFins. Looks like that boat is wider with higher sides than your old alumacraft.

Does your floor slope in towards the middle or does it just look like it? And if it does, why didn't you build it up more in the middle?

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 height then I have to, by the time you get to the bow seat were the deep v starts I was like 8" just in the framing at center line. This seem to work best.

I'd use something other than that OSB. It is by far the worst thing you could put on a boat. Spill a drink and its ruined.

I imagine if it was sealed up with some epoxy or a few coats of spar varnish it would be fine...?
