I'm working on an 11' Sear with an old 5 horse. Not great, but better than walking!

Canoe,powered by my good right arm :mrgreen:
When I get them back to good order I'll have a 20 ft Shamrock center console with a Ford 302 straight inboard(seaduck rig)
A 14 ft glass tri-hull with a 40 hp merc
And a 12 ft sears game fisher that I want to convert to a sneak boat.
My lab is still the best hunting partner there is.

DUKHTR,when this snow recedes I will be fully engaged with repairs and upgrades.
Im building a side console for the 14 footer and I'm going to install a new floor and put in a casting deck in the bow.
The gamefisher took a pounding from a snow plow and needs to be heavily redone(Next time I'll store it well away from the driveway,oops!)
The Shamrock needs new ignition,batteries,zincs, and a new prop.I also want to remove last years gas as a precaution and start fresh.I need to do general engine maintainance and I want to paint the hull,I'm thinking a deep green.I've got a compressor with air tools,sanders.
If you want to help that would be great,especially painting the 20 footer.
Thats going to be a chore!

Hey everyone. I'm new to the forum, and I love it. I can't get enough of it. I recently bought a 16' Blue Finn and I threw a 20 horse Merc on it. It's a little underpowered, but it planes out and goes. It's an oldie but a goodie
