That is a very good deal. Too back it doesn't have a cuddy, otherwise it might be following me home!

Re: Need help from the gurus...

I feel the 135 HO on that hull will work fine, as long as you're not looking to be the fastest guy out there. I have that same motor on my 20 aluminum and I push 37 mph and need to make a prop adjustment and I think I'll get a few more hp out of it.

Re: Why is the windshield tilted that way

Speed (wind) + gravity will drive water down/off the window.

Looking good! I was just at Chad's shop the end of July and saw your boat in cut-pieces form...I think they had just unloaded the truck before I had arrived.

Re: 22' Aluminum Abbott fishing boat

If it were 6-8 ft longer I might take it off your hands. There are people looking for project boats, so I don't think you'd have a problem selling it...but it comes down to what price you're willing to part with it for.

Re: looking for new boat , Brand/model advise

Maybe you are looking for a boat similar to this? Modify your walk-around pilothouse as needed.

Re: What's happening at the Wooldridge shop

The performance date from the 29' SS is very interesting. Not much difference in fuel mileage from 11 mph up to 37 mph. Seems like there is usually more of a curve than that in most boat/motor setups. Very good economy for trolling too with the G2's.

Propeller Selection

I need to select a different propeller since I repowered. Over the years I have seen conversations about reproping and that there are certain places that will help you with your selection and mail you different props to try, allowing you to return the props that did not work. I am coming up dry on m...

Re: Aluminum Type and Flotation Question

Also, not sure how you plan to use the boat. If you plan to use it for fishing, trolling particually, my 20' boat has the side windows chopped short so I can mount a rod holder there. I can drive and real my line in/let it out at the same time. A lot of boats either the captain cannot fish or else h...

Re: Aluminum Type and Flotation Question

Not sure if your boat will have a walk-through dash like shown or not, but if it does, you may want that area to have a door or something to block wind when traveling 30 kts in 30* weather. That can make a huge difference in comfort. Speaking from experience.
