Yeah I love the boat so far. Have had no problems. Yeah I got the Skynard hint. Saw Skynard and Montgomery Gentry on the Tube the other night and they sang that song.. I got the boat in June and I have only had it wet a few times. I injured my shoulder and had surgery in Oct.. Have been out of commission for a while. A friend of mine took me out Striper fishin at the local lake for a while yesterday. Maybe by March I'll be recovered enough to set the hook on some fish again....

Default Boats

I got a 1980 Grady-White w/ 140 hp. Suzuki 4 Stroke. My uncle and dad found it uncovered in the back of my uncle's friend's boat yard. We fixed it up...wet sanded it, new paint, new engine...the works! Now it runs like new...and the new Suzuki is the most amazing engine. It gets great fuel milage and its the quietest thing ever. Keep it in Boston Harbor (Striper heaven) :D

Default Suzuki

I bought it in Salem, Mass.

At the time Suzuki had the "Gimme six " offer, so we got a sweet 6 warranty on it.

I have a classic 20' 1970 Seacraft Open Fisherman with 140hp I/O Merc , finest kind:D I keep my boat in the South River in Humarock and also in Cohasset Harbor for part of the year.
My buddy had a 1973 w/140 outboard Evin. Great boat :?: we went all over the place with it. He paid $3,400 Brand new boat w/ eng. (used) The eng. was about 3 yrs. old. Then a couple of years later they came out with the 23 ft. Open fisherman. the 23 ft. is a deep vee. the waves break along side of you, you never get wet. The 20 ft. is a semi-vee He bought it in Waveland Marine in Hull Mass.

I own a 1978, 18' Jon dory Yellow tail(pic in mug shots) I bought the open fiberglass(it only looks like a wood lapstrake)skiff in 1980,and began customizing her to my liking,the original boat had a 50HP Merc. w/tiller handle, I set up a console,just forward of midship,added a 50 gallon oval bait tank with raw water and circulating feeds,I installed Bennet trim tabs,out riggers,downriggers and six flush mount SS rod holders,floor illumination and a light to shine into the eel bucket,the port gunnel has a 40" lighted measuring board tucked up out of the way, the console has
been updated with a Lowrance LCX 18C fishfinder and a Garmin 182C GPSmap ,a large Ritche compass and a Uniden in dash VHF round out the console, I reinforced the transome and raised the hight 4", she is now powered by a 2000 115 Merc. w/XXl shaft.,hydraulic steering,twin 20 gallon fuel tanks and dual battery system finishes out the power.
Quiet propulsion comes from a Minn Kota 50lb thrust trolling motor and independant battery.
She sleeps(during the day) in Salisbury on the Merrimack river.

Default Polar 1900cc - 2005

I've got a 2005 Polar 1900cc with a Yamaha 115 4 Stroke.
I looked at a ton of boats and if I could of talked my wife into letting spend a little more I'd have a Sailfish 218 in the yard. I'm happy with the Polar because it gave me a little to spend on goodies. It's got 2 live bait wells (1) under seat in front of console (1) in back jump seat, upfront cooler with drains, built in tackle box, Raw Water Wash, Twin Batteries,T-top and more rod holders than I have rods :)

Lowrance Fish Finder, VHF & Garmin 276 with chip
