My Walleye Project - 70's Sea Nymph SS160 1668

Post by jvanhees »

Hi and thanks to all of you for your build threads!!!!! I have been learning a ton so far. The wealth of knowledge on this sight is invaluable! I am a new member, Jared, and have just picked up my new walleye boat...a 70's Sea Nymph SS160 1668.

Picked this up on CL for $600 with the trailer, not a bad deal but it is gutted fully and in need of a total rebuild. Kinda glad it is already gutted after some of the threads I have seen so far....I think it is a pretty solid boat, and is just what I am looking for to walleye fish. I am not sure of the year, as the tag and registration do not specify......ideas?

This boat came with the 2 original live wells, the rod locker peice that fold down over the rods, the side console piece, and another piece I am not sure of. I will also be selling my bass/duck mod v to fund this project . Below are a couple pics to start... thank you in advance for all of your help!

Things I would like to add/modify:

-Front deck with storage for 2 batteries and livewell
-New foot controlled trolling motor
-Side console for console motor - Or maybe tiller I am not sure yet
-New transem
-Restore the trailer
-Outboard - 25 HP ish
-Pedestals / Seats
-New Floor & Foam
-Truck bed liner, gluvit, carpet - not sure
-Radio, aux input, lights
-I am sure there will be more. I would like to take my time on this, and do everything the correct way...which is why I am here! Any and all input encouraged.
