Tracker Sportsman 1648 Mod (new pics 6/24)

Post by basshunter25 »

Ok fishing has been getting in the way of modding lately but with the bass ive been catching can you blame me? Today I have pulled everything out of the boat and getting it ready for paint. While I was waiting for the primer to dry I got to looking at the hatches and decided to use some old carpet and loctite adhesive spray and line the inside of my hatches so there are no sharp edges when reaching into them. The loctite seems to be holding good but only time will tell. I still need to get and modify some plastic bins to fit in the hatches but that can wait. Ive got the console and throttle box painted and should get the boat done tonite so pics will come tomorrow.

Ok paint is done, console and throttle box installed, and decks and floors are ready to be secured. I still need to make some side walls to cover ribs and install my seat post bases. Instead of peeling off the tracker decal I covered it with tape and painted over it. Not sure if I would like how it turned out but with the old green color outlining the decal I think it looks sweet. Shes come along way and I surprised myself with how well it turned out. Stoked to go fishing now!!

Great job, been watching it in the background. I like how the factory sticker looks.


Its a nice one, and just like a new pair of shoes make ya run faster, I believe a customized tin boat makes ya fish better =D> :LOL2:

On paper it looks like I'll need 8x20 or 6x25. I got samples of the 16 and 20oz and really didn't see much difference until I bent the sample around an edge, then the 20oz was noticable. I'll probably go 20 just because.

Your boat looks nice, now to get out and fish.

Thanks alot guys! :beer: Couldn't have done it without this site. Maiden voyage should be tomorrow or sunday so some on the water pics and maybe video will be in order.

Ranchero: if you can cover your width with the 6ft I think your better off leaving yourself extra feet at the end. That way you can make sure that the grain goes the same way and you don't get two shades next to each other. Double check that before you start glueing. Good luck!
