1974 SeaCraft 20SF

Repowered and put in a new transom in 2008 (2 sheets of 3/4" Bluewater Coosa and 4+ layers of 1708), unfortunately didn't document the process very well with pictures.

Current project thread
  • New deck
  • Moving scuppers to transom vs straight down
  • Refinished the console
  • Spraying hull Sea Foam Awlgrip, inside Matterhorn White
  • New fiberglass hatches

Very interesting thread, lots to see!

I'm a serial builder, I can't stand the idea of not having a project in the shop of some sort at all times. Barely got done with one boat, wedged in a quick project remodeling the kitchen to keep SWMBO happy, then back at it with the Clippercraft:

Thanks. It was a long process.

A bracket on a 20' drags the ass down too much. Too much weight cantilevered out off the transom. If it were a 23 or bigger I would have for sure. I'm eyeballing a 26 now....

Yea I guess you got a point, I just like to free up as much room as possible in the cockpit area for fishing....

Here's mine: It's a 35 Duffy with a Caterpillar 3208t. I did the complete rebuild from the deck stringers, engine and transmission install, windows, electronics and painting. I contracted nothing other than the engine MOH.

Well thanks for that! Yeah I have some money it the boat but every bit of it and more is in the appraisal value from the recent survey. TC is a great boat and can do anything from a family cruzer to an offshore tuna catching machine.

Dream-

I think you'd be called crazy if you hadn't shown us the ultimate catch from the boat earlier.

Sweet boat, my hats off to you and your endeavors!

The forums at bateau.com have a lot of cool builds going on with tons of pictures. I've spent a lot of hours reading those threads.

Default Here is my 1978 Whaler low pro 19' project

This is my 3rd whaler to restore, last two
17' Montauk 78
22 outrage 84

Now this is my 1978 Low pro 19' originally was a 19 outrage banana, previous owner had it cut down by a fiberglass company, they install a ugly front deck that I had to remove. transom is rock solid, decks are rock solid. I am fairing the bow right now and about to gelcoat.

I'm about to start rewiring my 23' pathfinder and installing electronics. I'll start a thread when that gets going.
