Oars or paddle? 100#'s of battery and a troller isn't going to do it much good. A 80# 9.9 Merc should make it scoot.

Post by Hooky1420 »

Launching the boat on Saturday for the first time at Lake Ida in Palm Beach County. Supposed to be sunny and 70 degrees. Can't wait... Will answer all stability issues on Saturday upon return.

As an update, I added small flush clips to the front deck, whick will secure my rods during transport with mini bungee cords. Was pleasantly suprised that i have enough deck room to fit my 7 ft rods.

UPDATE...

Launched the boat for the first time since modification. Weight of the boat, wood, 2 batteries, trolling motor, plus gear, and two men, was not a problem. Boat rode about 6-8 inches out of the water at the gunwales. So to me, that suggests that it could handle more weight, which is good because I have yet to find an outboard.

For the members who posted concerns of the raised front deck/stability issues... I can give you my honest opinion - it wasn't like you were walking on the ground, but it was perfectly manageable. It was more stable than I ever expected, especially while resting on the pedestal seat. Boat wakes happened, but there was not a single time where I felt uneasy, and my brother-in-law and I were both standing. I'm not sure if it was because of the added weight of the wood and gear, but it was 50% more stable than before my modifications. The decking also acted as an insulator to cut water lapping noise down which was a nice surprise.

Overall, I'm really happy with the boat. Anyone have any questions, please ask, I will be happy to answer truthfully. One other thing - I have a 30lb transom mount trolling motor and it pushed it just fine all day on a single battery.

Don't mind at all!

I bought the boat brand new from tracker in april for $730 after taxes. That was the biggest lump in the wallet so far. I might add that this was a nominal fee to pay after getting "tinboat fever" shortly after finding this website. Other costs can be found listed below:

Bass Pro Prowler 30lb transome mount trolling motor: $79.99 (special sale)
Four cupholders, bass pro, $3.99 each, total $16
Two utility trays, target, $2.99 each
Two sheets 3/4" plywood, home depot, $24 each, total $48
Two sheets 1/2" plywood, home depot, $18 each, total $36
10'x12' outdoor carpet, lowe's, $0.49 a square foot, $58 total (estimate)
4 2"x4" boards, $2.50 each, home depot, total $10
6 2"x2" boards, $2.00 each, home depot, total $12
5 hatch pull handles, bass pro, $3.99 each, total $20
14 hinges, average cost for 2 pack at home depot, $2.50 per 2, total $15
Pop rivets, 2 boxes 3/8", $3.00 a box, home depot, total $6
Two car batteries, free from mechanic brother-in-law, total FREE!
2 cans 3M 90 Spray Adhesive, home depot, $14 a can, total $28
brackets, various types, home depot, $25
Thompsons water seal, home depot, $18
Seat plates, 3, bass pro, $15 each $45
Seats, bass pro, 2 at $45 each, 1 at $35 total of $125
2 cleats, $4.00 each at bass pro, $8 total
screws and and hardware, $20 estimate.

geez... looking at all this stuff individually, i guess i spent more than i thought... but when i took it out today it was all well worth it.

total build (not counting man hours)... right around $600 on top of the cost of the boat. i don't have any resources though, had to buy everything new... and i messed up a few times and had to redo some things. i have no building or carpentry experience previously, and relied heavily on the members of tinboats.

This was the first catch on "Playin' Hooky" this morning about 7:10 a.m. Unfortunately I had to freehand the boat name, and I'm not too artistic!

Wow that's not to bad. It looks great man. I just got the same boat from bass pro 3 weeks ago. I'm thinking about doing that or atleast a front deck. Looks great again. Oh an by the way I got a 2.5 mercury from basspro. With 4 guys on the boat it still pushes it great. I know it sounds small but just letting you know

awesome. I took a bunch of photos during the build, how i did my front deck... i will be posting them in a complete build thread when i get the spare time. you should check it out, maybe it will give you some ideas that you can improve on.

one question - does the 2.5 get the boat on a plane? i imagine that i would need something a little bigger with the extra weight? i was looking at getting at least a 9.9, but i'm gonna have to find the right deal...

good luck with your build man.

Thanks for the stability report! I'm trying to get some ideas on what to do for mine and your build is helping with that. Nice looking boat there!
