Yes.

The 1925 pacific is a nice boat. If I did lake MI fishing, other than the pier heads, I'd probably look at a larger pacific myself.

Re: New, to me, Boat; convert from work to fishing; stop corrosion

the tow bit is cut out. There were holes in the tow bit bottom plate where, I assume, it was screwed into another boat. Those had been sealed with silicone or some such caulk. But, there was still water between the plates. But, the corrosion wasn't bad and pitted like under the bottom paint. Still, ...

Re: New, to me, Boat; convert from work to fishing; stop corrosion

I got to spend a bit of time on the boat this weekend and got the motor guards off. I used fiber cutting disks. Worked okay, but I can see how a cutting tool would be better. I’m not wanting to try cutting disks on the tow bit, as I really want to get the whole plate out so the deck is back to just ...

New, to me, Boat; convert from work to fishing; stop corrosion

I picked up a new, to me, boat. It's a 16' and 3/16" 5086 aluminum. It’s an interesting boat with high sides and a modified V of 12 or 13 degree. It has a tow bit and outboard guards. I think these will get in the way of landing fish, so I’ll probably cut them off. It has a welded in deck that looks...

Re: Your thoughts and input on a 16 foot skiff for a noob.

Has anyone purchased a boat from Canada lately? I was looking into this recently and the place I contacted said I would have to pay a 1500 (500 paperwork, 1000 freight brokerage). Then I still had to transport the boat the rest of the way home once it was delivered across the border. Alternatively, ...

Re: Your thoughts and input on a 16 foot skiff for a noob.

You happen to live on the right side of the country (the left) for thicker aluminum boat builders. I like the lee shore. Here are some others I'd like to see in person.
