Talk about anything that floats your boat (no pun intended). This is general talk about anything not related to boating/fishing.

Hello, I'm Dustin. I'm 35, from Southeast Kansas. Grew up fishing out of these old tin boats. Just recently bought a late 50's Crestliner Voyager from a Cousin. Waiting on new wheels and tires for the trailer then I will go pick it up and get started. Hoping to set it up as my Catfish and Crappie fishing boat while still being able to go play and pull a tube or cruise the lake.

Good morning everyone. I just joined this site to hopefully get some tips and advice for adding a front casting deck and modifying my new jon boat. I just bought (yesterday) a Lowe L1440M. My son and I live in RI and this boat should be perfect for fishing the small freshwater ponds here. We have a center console saltwater boat but wanted to change it up at times. As of now, I have a 55lb thrust trolling motor and gear. We just needed the boat to get started however my plan is to mount a casting deck, get a trolling motor for the bow and add a small outboard such as a 9.9 HP or so. Also need to but a floor deck in and a hatch to cover the battery / gas tank area. Just thought I would say hello and introduce myself.

Thanks..

Hello everyone, name is Drake....and I have a boating problem lol. Im 47 years young and currently hail from Southern NJ, originally from South East Pa. My (3) sons are full grown now so it seems I have way more time for hobbies.I have been visting Tinboats literally for years and years (early-mid 2000's when I first stumbled upon this site) here and there for research with different prior boating projects...soooo many projects haha. This is a great place for ideas or even the occasional boating issue someone has resolved already.

Recently I was doing more research for ideas on my current tin rig im still finishing and decided now would be a great time to potentially make some new friends and show off the current progress on this aluminum brain child of mine.

I will try and get something online tonight, prob take me a little while with all the pictures and modifications I already completed.
Anyway hope to make some new acquaintances.

P.S. Boating Hobbies: Fresh Water/Saltwater fishing, hunting duck/geese, water skiing/tubing, hiking/camping......etc.

Hello. I started fishing regularly with the boat I bought 2 years ago. I think there is something to learn in this forum.

Hi everyone :)
Lu here from Mississauga, ON. Looking to get my first tin boat (hopefully Alumacraft V16 but if an old bass tracker or grumman 17' shows up, I will not be averse).
Hoping also to do some neat things to the boat. Expect posts asking all kinds of questions about everything from bilge pumps to livewells to picking the right sonar / trolling motor combo.
Thanks!

Hello TB,

Greetings from San Diego! I just purchased my first boat, a tinny 2013 16' Lund Fury running a 25HP Merc on a Shorelandr trailer. I'm a novice fisherman and boater, mostly keeping it on local lakes and San Diego/Mission bays, targeting varieties of bass and whatever else bites. My fishing buddy is my son who recently fell in love with angling and that helped convince the Mrs. that we should own a boat.

Looking forward to learning more from you all. Thanks for having us.

Hello everyone, new to the site, old to fishing. I hope this site can help me restore a 21 foot bayrunner. It has a lot of salt water corrosion ( lots of thinning and pin holes ). I am retired and don't have a lot of money to fix it maybe correct so I am looking for options. I will use my boat just to fish the jetties and close to shore. I am a retired Navel Building Inspector, so if any of you need building advise, may be I can help you. this boat I have will be my 2021 project, so please help with advise, Thank you

Hello. I live in Tallahassee, FL. I just recently bought a SeaArk that I plan to use on the salt flats in the big bend area of Florida. An aluminum boat is needed in this area due to all the oyster bars and rocks.
