Re: Aluminum Type and Flotation Question

Thanks again for all the great suggestions and input. I did order a snap-in canvas square for under the center windshield. I'll probably weld up an aluminum door once I lose the canvas piece :-). The prop recommended by the dealer is a 13.25" diameter, 17 degree pitch (3 blades). I have no idea of r...

Re: Aluminum Type and Flotation Question

I think the Predator was 20' and $26,000 USD w/ 90HP Yamaha ready to go (gas, and outfitting). You can see what they have in inventory with this link (generally keep it current from my understanding) http://marina.ca/boats/?make=stanley. I like the dual console (very different from the Islander I'm ...

Re: Aluminum Type and Flotation Question

Not sure how helpful this is as I'm not nearly as experienced as many on this forum. If you are interested in a Stanley boat, I had a very good experience with both the dealer and the boat this past weekend. I went to demo an Islander 19, which is a welded 3/16 hull (1/4" on 21 and 23 versions) dual...

Aluminum Type and Flotation Question

Hello, I took out a Stanley Islander 19' dual console boat with a Yamaha F115 yesterday on the St. Lawrence river in 20 mph winds with light rain and snow. The boat handled the chop really well, and the canvas enclosure made it a fairly warm and comfortable (compared to being exposed :-) ). I'm happ...

Re: Demoing Boat, Looking For Feedback

@ Wantry- They have a 20' Predator ($33,395), and two Pulsecrafts 22' ($66,980) and 24' ($74,968) on their Web site (http://marina.ca/boats/?make=stanley). Prices are in CAD, so multiply those number times .77 for approximate US price. Their site might not be updated, so no guarantees. I'm dealing w...

Re: Demoing Boat, Looking For Feedback

Thanks Chaps. The 19' is actually 3/16", but moving to the 21' is 1/4". My concern is mostly repeated beaching on chunky gravel shores (walking it in), is 3/16" fine, or do I stretch my budget and the size I want in order to get the 1/4" with the 21'? Also, just curious about suggesting max power fo...

Demoing Boat, Looking For Feedback

I really appreciate everyone on this forum and all the combined knowledge. I'm driving about 5 hours to a marina near Ottawa to test drive an aluminum dual console boat next week, and am hoping to get some thoughts/feedback on the boat, and things I should ask about or look for when up there test dr...

Re: Winninghoff

EDIT: Ignore my post below. I realized I got carried away thinking about something that doesn't really make sense. I also got a response from the seller that the boat is basically sold. Thanks -Huckle Any feedback or thoughts on this boat? It would be a bit over-kill for me. Primarily on Lake Champ...
