cfauvel FL Bill Technically I don't even have a deck for an in-deck baitwell . However, I did you can see where I highlighted it in the pic I got from the seller, and the screenshot from a vid I took after I pressure washed. I do plan on putting it back in and plumbing it with a thru-hull high speed pickup. Primarily up here on the lake all we fish with is live bait, so I am building my boat for that. I love catching my own bait too, and always wanted an in-deck well for cast net hauls. I am going to have a clear lid cut for it too, as well as the back well. I may turn both port and starboard quarters into wells... Hopefully, I can have her ready to kite fish in S. FL next year!

i havent run it with the baitwell full since the tank went in...but i have noticed that the list to port while running is gone now since i removed the foam between the inboard stringers just behind the console to match the other side...there was also water being held in the outboard stringer area due to plugged (foam) limber holes...it runs dead solid flat now at speed...it didnt really change much with the baitwell full and i have also run a 6hp 4 stroke kicker on the port transom that put a bit of a lict on her but not as much as i thoght it would...

as for an indeck baitwell...i have no use for one...my broken body hates going into the deck for anything...i have a huge under deck storage compartment in front of the console cooler seat and keep a spare anchor and some other almost never used stuff in there...

the anchor locker is accessed through an access hatch on the forward bulkhead and the rode is dropped through an anchor rode pipe into the locker...the anchor is secured on the pulpit with a chain bit....works fantastic and i love it...

bow area...

line drops right in while i'm hauling it in...lays nice in the locker with no tangles

pulpit and roller

anchor locker...flare kit...fenders...big compartment...love the layout...makes for a nice platform to cast off on the bow...

anchor locker...

storage in front of the console cooler seat...very deep and will swallow a cooler when it's too big to fit in the console seat...

bow area...swallows an enormous amount of gear...

Pullin: The top picture looks a lot like mine, but I cannot figure out the location of bottom picture.

Here is the sales papers and layout of my boat (very close to mine, my whole front area is level from front seat to bow with just 2 large triangle hatchs. And my transom is different as I have a transom well area. (which robs me of space...see below)



This is from David from this thread. (thanks again David)

Here is the front area:


here you can see my SB storage area... (only picture I could find..lol):
Port side with live well:

And before I hung my motor. :

I do like having this well back here as if a wave breaks over the stern the water is pretty much contained and drains quickly. Shame I am going to pull my motor back off to redo my transom. I hear a lot of people talk about this type of repair. Some do it from outside, cutting the transom skin. And some do it from the inside leaving the outer skin intact. I planed to use a pour-able solution but really have no clue what I am doing. I also heard of people doing it with composites like coosa...and even just wood again.

(I just previewed and can see about 5 post happened while I made this one...ha...)


I also need to redo my tank and deck and I think of just doing it all at one time. But I really do not want to make it one of those projects...

I really like this. Does the anchor bounce around much while under way? Do you bungee it down or something?

chain holds it tight to the roller...no bouncing at all....its really nice when pulling up a muddy anchor..just keep dropping it in the water till it comes up clean and no mess ever gets to the boat...nice if I have to pole into a mangrove for a misplaced cast...I just walk the anchor line back in the boat and control it on a stern cleat as I let it out and it is paid out through the roller on the bow...

Located a lower unit in St Pete and made the trip to pick it up this morning. Installed with no issues. Found a great little company that deals in used parts and has a nice Suzuki inventory. The unit was pressure tested before the sale and appears to be in good shape...much less prop shaft end play than my original had. shifting is tight. Looking forward to getting back in the water.

I was wondering why you did not use the kicker instead of seatow?

Glad you found a lower unit. Should have told me you were gonna be in town...who did you get it from?

I think the company is called parts galore or something like that...very responsive and the unit seems pretty clean...

The trip was a zip run to st Pete and back so I could install it in the afternoon...

I seldom bring the kicker along...no kicker this trip...

I have a spare DT115 I need to check the lower unit out on, just needs bearings and seals I think....will know for sure once I get in there. (mine came with a complete spare DT115) I think it was the factory motor it was powered with...

My livewell does not drain or pickup through the transom. The high speed pickup is in usual location through the bottom with a seacock and pump. It drains through the SIDE of the boat, with a couple of neat fittings.

My boat doesn't seem to notice when the port livewell is full. I have tabs, so maybe I "fix" any lean without noticing, but I really don't think so.

Just redid a 1989 22. Love the Hull. My uncle bought the boat new back then. New stringers, floor and transom. Added a tower and 225 Optimax. Great boat.
