Re: Craigslist 23 Pacific

It was sold out of Manchester NH last year. I called to go take a look at it & was told it was sold. :banghead: It was sold for $10K less last year. :shocked:

Re: Bought a 23 Pacific

There is a spray in bed liner called Raptor Liner. Our local Sanel Auto Parts store stocks it. Even comes with the spray gun. Sprinkle a little "Black Beauty" sand blasting media on it when it is wet for some traction. I think it is around $200 for the whole kit.

Re: Plastic Bunk Boards??

I noticed the plastic decking sags more than the wood. I personally would double up on the plastic boards, bolt them together ect. I converted my trailer to rollers, on some ramps that are steep the boat rolls back off unless you keep the outboard throttled up or have someone to hook the bow eye for...

Re: Bought a 23 Pacific

I remember back in the BlackLab Marine days when you ordered a brochure it would have a 1 inch X 1 inch square piece of aluminum taped to the inside so you could see what the boat was made out of. There was a short story about how they put a piece of it in the bay & took it out after 30 years, clean...

Plastic Bunk Boards??

As most of us know by now pressure treated wood, wet carpet & aluminum boats just don't get along after a while. Has anyone looked into using the plastic decking?? Does it have chemicals in it like pressure treated wood or is it just simply a UV stable plastic?? I talk to some people who like the ca...

Re: Bought a 23 Pacific

I guess I am kind of curious on how corrosion gets this bad? I thought 5086 alloy was one of the the ultimate boat building materials? Or is this simply a boat that was not well taken care of?? Makes me nervous about buying one. :shocked:

Re: Table top slabs of wood

It is funny you found a video on this. I made 3 tables out of 4-6 inch thick material in shop class back in the day. Still have 2 of them in my house, 1 I gave away as a gift. Big, heavy & VERY strong. Come to think of it the tables are about 20 years old & still going strong. My teacher was glad to...

At least he gets to use his boat year round :thumbsup: And it beats walking across the ice. Probably even floats if it falls through. :thumbsup:

Add $7,000 for shipping. $3,000 in fuel if us "Eastcoasters" drive there to pick it up. Hotels, food, what ever else you may need for the 2 week trip. :shocked:
