The Yamaha 8 high thrust is what usually gets put on around here (even if your main motor is different) because it has the tilt/trim and lashes up well with remote controls, pilots, etc. Fishing for salmon requires a lot of moving between different areas then quick deployment of the kicker for troll...

Like, can I put up a picture of a Boston Whaler in here?

OK, lets kick this forum off with a special little number from a few years back. Yes, a BW from the commercial division set up for patrol duties, a diminutive 32' with a pair of 6BT Cummins.

Here is a pic of it rigged with a hoist for pulling oyster grow-out trays up onto a wood float where the trays are cleaned off with a pressure washer that is up in my bow. She also does quite a bit of towing, b...

Hey, a new hangout for metal-holics

Very nice and thanks Welder for the pm. Where do post rants? :D BTW, lots of boats up in my neck of the woods, lots of different styles, sizes, etc. Tons of builders up here too. I'll be going to the Seattle boat show here in a couple of weeks and could get some pics that I would post if'n you guys ...
