76 Sea Nymph

Transom......It looks like it is factory for the wood to only go down 1/2 way. It is your call on what to do, but IMO you can't do to much for transom stiffness. Maybe if the rear deck framing mounts to the transom, and along the side of the boat, and then with the rear decking fastened to it, it should be really stiff.

For the middle stringer, I would take a jig saw to that to clean up the chewed up area, and then rivet in a piece of aluminum angle. So you have some floor support, and a place to rivet/screw too when fastening the rear floor down.

the first pic is actually turned wrong, its on the left side in the front just below the bumper i was thinking i owuld try to open that one back up and use it unless thats not a good idea. i was also just thinkin maybe i could get in contact with somone at the union hall and see if they could possibly tig weld my holes back together for me rather than patch, maybe for a case of beer or something??? who knows. and as for that Z channel in the ceter it really needs beefed up its barely hangin on. the factory foam was supporting it mostly and once i took it outit started wobbleing around. thinking i might see if a buddy can bend me a pbig piece of hat channel to replace it with. What is 5200? im not familiar with epoxy if thats what it is.

also the rear deck was mounted to the transom before and ill prob do that again somehow. im working on getting aluminum angle together for all my framing [-o< trying to do this with no cost :lol: i got friends in the right places i just hope it works out for me. one more question, whats the reason for adding teh floats to the rear of the boats like i see a lot of people doing? is it just to get them up faster when launching?

Google 3m 5200 and it will give a better description than I can.

Here is a link that will help you with identifying that motor if you have the serial.

For your pictures, I'd create an account on photobucket.com . It's free and you shouldn't have any problems uploading pictures regardless of size and once you have them there you can edit them (rotate, crop, etc). Then all you have to do to post them here is copy the img code to here.

=D> great idea about useing one of the holes to bring in fresh water to the livewell however i dont htink i want the hole in the bottom of the hull . low on either side is the place to be reight? i think ill do that. just got the word from my buddy im goin to be able to get my aluminum angle free of charge :D so im gonona do all my framing in this!! im excited, -i wanna keep the boat light. i removed SO MUCH WEIGHT during my demo i was amazed.... between all the wood and the 10 lbs of screws i removed lol and that old foam. it had so much water in it. thats y im wanting to seal the inside im nervous ive got some leaks. either that or because it didnt have any drainage. is this common??

Concerning the transom question? My boat only has the wood going halfway down to the floor on the transom so it is probably ok for your boat too.

Concerning livewell equipage, my boat has a thru hull pump in transom right at the bottom, this pumps water into the livewell when on. It also has a overflow / drain in the livewell that drains straight down thru the bottom of the boat, very similiar to what you have equipped on yours.

thanks, slowly but surely im moving forward. the transom looks to be tricky but i think i can manage. there are a lot of screws and bolts in it. im still a little unsure of the type of wood to us in replacing it. any sugestions?

ive done a lot of looking around and i have not found another boat like this one, some similar but no sea nymphs. that is what is on the title, could it be wrong? all the nymphs ive seen do not have a steering console in them, none this shape anyways. anyone have a line on a 76 nymph that looks like mine? id love to see one, ive had no luck. thanks for lookin!

I think my boat is a 77.
I'm not sure if production was low or what but it seems like pre 1980 Sea Nymphs are VERY few and far between, with very little to no info from 78' down. At least that is my experience.


What is your hull ID number?

After reading every thing on here and getting opinions im going to just go with exterior grade ply for the floor and the outter transom and some cedar on the inside.

By the way how do you use the drain cock it looks like it's boxed in ??

Should be right on the starboard side transom. On the outside. If not, you might run into some problems.
That really should be there, so if not, you are going to want to get a new one made.
