Re: My 26" Pacific / Black Lab is Sold

The boat will be under tow to S.C. on Sunday afternoon. I believe that she will spend most of her time there however the company is nationwide & I wouldnt be suprised to see her anywhere.

She was purchased by a company that responds to oil spills. She will have the bait station removed, have a tow bar and engine guard installed. Its a great group of guys that own/work for this company from all over the U.S. I'm sure that she will be a hard working fantastic work platform for many, ma...

Anyone interested in a sea trial should contact me soon. She will be coming out of the water for some mods in a couple of weeks & probably not going back in till spring.

Re: Opinions on my next project

I agree Jetty, however the cabin model has a TON of storage under the seats & helm. More than I need. That being said, I think the extra "security" may be worth keeping ? I appreciate your input !

Re: Opinions on my next project

Thanks for the info CTMD, that is what the previous owner told me but I questioned it. Having a boat that wont sink or flip is a great asset to offshore fishing ! I hope I will never have to test this theory. I think with your info & Alloy's weld in rod holder idea I have a the answer. However I can...

Opinions on my next project

As many of you know , my boat is actively for sale. In this economy, I think I'll still have her next year. My thoughts are to remove the rear bait station & apply non-skid where it came out. I also want to cut open gunnel openings for storage and to install flush mount rod holders. Just like the bo...

Re: 2006 26' Pacific WA5 .. End of season deal

I love the pilothouse. I will never own a non wheelhouse boat again. This is a perfect combo, pilothouse, center concole,& fast. I just need something a little more wife friendly. Someone will get an awesome boat !

Re: Oak Bluffs Shark Touranment

I just got back from fishing the OB tournry. I talked to a crew member of the boat that sank. He said 1 wave cracked all the glass & the next he thought cracked the hull , the cockpit filled up with water. The boat was a 29' Luhrs. I made it 3 miles south of MV & turned around. By far the roughest s...

Barnacles growing with bottom paint ?

There seems to be tiny white dots growing on my newly painted (with Trilux 33) hull. More on one side that the other ? I'm not sure they are barnacles, they brush right off the side. I'm concerned about the bottom ? Could these be barnacles ? Something else ? Normal ? The boat has only been in about...

I took off a 22" wheel & it is for sale. I just added a suicide knob & love the new set up. The helm seems so much roomier now. Btw I have a Seastar 1.7 helm.

I know that I can order them from Pacific, but I haven't seen them in West Marine or Boat Zincs.com. Any idea where I can pick up a few local to Mass or the Northeast ?
