I'll take a wild guess that a 1978 SeaCraft is a deep V boat ,21 degree deadrise????? You will drift faster in the Pacific. You need to make those kinda comparisons yourself, though to meet your needs. Comparisons would be like asking which is better a Hummer versus a 1978 Caddy?? Weight carrying ab...

Man, I'd love to be a fly on the wall at a boat show with Jay.

I used to go to shows and couldn't find out of all of those boats, one that appealed to me and made me say...I gotta have that!

A fly, yeah I'd like to be there thats for sure.

Northern Trailers?????????

Seems that from at least N.J. to Canada everyone has rollers on their trailers. Not all "so called" boat ramps look like a shallow bank. Do they? My only experience is one I saw on Long Beach Island in NJ. It seemed fine. I was just wondering. Because they look to be maintenance nightmares, compared...

Question for Jay at BLM

Was wondering in the last few photos I saw of the new super sleeper cab,
what it looked like, in the end.

IE:

-the box up on the stern...was that a livewell?

-and was the larger cut out in the floor for an "aluminum" deck hatch versus, the Armstrong compression "spin-out"?

No, but then again my boat doesn't look as good as some "other peoples".

My NYALIC coating is all rubbed!

That may be a cosmetic issue for the future, when I get around to it.

Been there done that.....is an old saying that usually means. "Don't bother asking, because this is the way I do it now." And that also applies to me. I fished several NON ALLOY boats, and always came back to the memories of the first boat that was ever "all mine". A 1970's something Alumacraft 14 f...
