Re: MY 25' EDWING

I can also see why my boat originally came with twin 4 cylinder I/O's for power. All that reversing would have swamped any outboard, even the 30" ones!

Re: MY 25' EDWING

I just watched ALASKA FISH WARS and I see my Edwing in a new light! My Edwing still has a Washington state salmon sticker on it and I clearly see the boat's design. There are weld marks at the bow where the two net posts were, the smooth pipe that goes all around the boat so the net doesn't snag on ...

Re: Pacific deck question?

I have a fishing chair like that, but lower, and it's always an accident waiting to happen. When running someone always sits in it and they end up slowly sliding/jumping to the stern..... or tipping over. If you want it, $100. Seat, pads, and aluminum base. Don't say I didn't warn you though....

I spoke with a pure blasting house today and got a lesson....and you're right. Glass seams great. Glass comes in round beads or broken tiny pieces so I need broken. 85 cents a pound. I'm on it like "WelderBob on Aluminum"!!!!

Don't get people, and me, going on the 2 stroke / 4 stroke thing Jetty. Come change my twin Honda oils, timing belt and adjust my valves and then we'll talk......but not race because I'm running Hondas!

Re: SODA BLAST / SAND BLAST BOTTOM ....

So what media did you use? Sand? I think I'm going with Home depot "play sand".

I have a 4000 PSI / 4 GPM unit so I'm hoping it works well. From what I read you really need to be careful not to eat up what you're blasting!!

SODA BLAST / SAND BLAST BOTTOM ....

Kind of nervous, want to be sure..... I stripped the bottom of my Edwing last year by sanding and grinding and it worked great! What's left to strip are all the welds were the plates join together, the welded strake to hull joints and some crazy hard to reach spots on the stern. After failing to hir...

Re: rough water crossing

It's a bad feeling when it's so rough out that you need to hide behind a ferry and it slowly slips away as the waves get bigger and bigger and the ferry gets smaller and smaller. Been there, done that.......but never planned a trip around it.

Hi All,

It's almost spring and I'm itching to get back in the water!!

I bought a used Raymarine e120 from a pal and figured if it fits, it'll go in the Edwing. It's missing the raystar 125 gps antenna and cable. Anyone have one for sale!?
