Default The official thread of NISSAN MARINE

Hehe, me kinda feeling I will be the only one showing pics here ;?


My wreck (Nissan Marine FSA 700 THT (no zoke for the THT)) just got a new crocket launcher and roof extension.

Before:



After:




Powder coated aluminum.
Still a few things to adjust. Methink corcket launchers are too short, leaning forward (wanted them vertical), ...

The new set up will be much more practical.

Sure you want them vertical - and not at a slight angle for easy removal?

Well I prefer them vertical because you can than fish in any direction.
Then I will be able to fit in another angled pipe that will allow me even to be more selective in the direction I wish.
To remove the rods, will be also pretty easy as my roof is not very high.
Welder, you deserve your name hehe.
How deep are your rocket launchers? Do you secure the rods in case of pounding ride? Mine are only 8 inches deep ;?

Hey Pierre,

What is that box molded into the transom area, forward of the splash well? It looks big enough to be the cover for an inboard engine, but since you have the outboard, it must be for something else....???

Where is that hull built; in Japan, by NISSAN?


Big Al
p.s. - you and Welder should trade flags.

Hi Al,

Well this takes a lot of space. This is the tank storage. I only have 110 liters into a stainless, but could easily move it under the floor, as there is anpther storage there. Aside of this tank storage are batteries on one side and any rubbish on the other.
That boat is from about 1980's. Lot of things could have been optimized, but still I am a happy A$$

General features:

2 meters berths, no toilet,
115 HP max drives the boat at 30-32 knots @ WOT
12 degrees deadrise, makes it half comfortable
Big live well with direct under water opening. Could hold probably 30-50 gallons.
Self bailing floor
Cabin top hatches openable, keeping them open vertical allows medium speeds. Gives a nice visibility for manouvres.
What else?

Imported from Japan as a wreck (see image station link).
Was obviously a fishing boat.

I like it because:

It was a wreck
Now it is a refreshed wreck
I like very much the look
The cuddy is quite wide.



Flaws:
cannot stand up in the cabin (only with open hatches).
hot in Vietnam
I feel the hull a bit thin.
free board seems low
lost working space on the platform.
General gelcoat colour yellowish (even not sun exposed).

Pierre,

The finish on the Teak Sandwich is beautiful! I have not seen that level of quality lacquer work before in a boat. Amazing.

If the NISSAN make you a happy ass, then that is all that matters

Post some fish pics.

Nissan had a boat line here in the US in the late 80's. They tried doing the "we build the motors, so why not the boats too" thing.

They didn't fare to well. Mostly knock-offs (splashes) of other popular models (small whaler's, etc..).

In no way meant as a reflection on this model. Obviously XV2PS's boat was not one of them.

Enjoy!

I run a cc from Yamaha (23', 85 HP), it is built like a tank. So I had good feeling about Japanese boats. This Nissan has many similarities. But I would say average less.

I think that Nissan are sold under Tohatsu and are (except samller versions) apparently very specific, including from what I read, the TLDI that is known as one of the most fuel efficient mid range O/B.

Edit: this was for 2 strokes, but now i discover they also sell under Nissan... ;?

But I am no Nissan expert.

Here is an interesting concept. I just figured out I was not the only one on earth with that wreck:
A Japanese owner set up the toilet right in the middle of the way to enter the cuddy.

Makes the cuddy cabin pretty unusable though.

What kind of fishing do you do in Vietnam? Do you have any fish pics you can share?

1. All my life I have been a mediocre fisherman. And I am not dead yet, so I will be 40 years more...

2. There are no fish left through all the gill nets

3. I am not allowed off shore

4. I only found one biting spot


So here is about all I can get:

butterfly breams (from too small to 1 foot), some croakers and some Indian (venomous) cat fish (from one to two feet). Here is a typical bucket.



I feel so small ;?

Your question hurts

If you found one biting spot due to your limitations I'd say that pretty good in my book. Of course you know the next question, your not allowed offshore?? Is that due to govt regulations or your wife...J/K LOL
