Hey Steve glad to see it ready to hit the water again...........Did they steal the fresh full tank of fuel you had in there when it was stolen, or was it fueled up when you got it back ?

Dually rear end surgery tomorrow at 8 am Should be running & in recovery by noon or so.

Truck & boat to the Lake on Sunday morning.

Wednesday? Sure did, I saw a lot of boats going the other way, headed to the Keys.

I put 12 hours on it this past weekend getting familiar with the Simrad equipment.

I do not miss my Raymarine gear. The Evo 2's are amazing.

will do an oil change and service on Saturday and then I have next week scheduled for fishing and hopefully will get some blood on her again.

so far weather looks good too

How do you like the Uflex Silversteer? Are you running the UC128-SVS 1 or the 2?

Thanks

Running the 2.
I had the same set-up on it before.
With 600 hours and two years of use.

Outstanding performance.
Super quality and the rams and hardware are pieces of art.

Default 1978 26' I/O Stamas

For all the Stamas fans following this thread. The price is certainly right on this "get it out of my yard sale" 26 foot 1978 I/O.

It was stolen in April and we got it back one week later.
All back together now.

ive read and re-read this thread and im blown away, just as everyone else - all 60 pages to date. I think you could have posted in 3 different forums, "boat rebuilds", "boat babes" and "stolen boats". You could also publish a book. I wish the THT moderators could establish a consolidated picture album of your pics alone. Reading thru was truly a great way to spend some downtime but id like just to see all the pictures together from start to finish. tell frisky hi

Thanks man, quite a journey.
Several members on here have had boats stolen.
It sucks and few words can describe what it feels like.
Glad you liked reading the build thread.

Days are finally getting longer up here in the cold and wet PNW. Just had to come back and look at this to get the boat juices flowing!

Beautiful boat. So clean and sharp. It's..........perfect.

Thanks again for sharing!

Default Why couldn't I have gotten into a cheaper addiction, like heroin?

76,

I realize that this post zombifies your thread a bit, but it's relevant.

The first time I read through this thread was about a week before your Stamas was stolen, and I've followed it since. I credit/blame your progress for making me so fond of the V26 Americana. I wound up buying a 1969 Americana hardtop from THT user Pooldoo73 last week, even though it's not the best point in my life to be taking on another project.

While I have neither the ability nor the funds to achieve the level of perfection that you have with Frisky, there will be a resto/rebuild thread of my own. I hope you won't mind if I happen to PM you questions from time to time.



I'm almost certainly in over my head.

Your not in over your head, I know from experience it can seem that way but it's only fiberglass and resin, can't let it beat you! Best thing about a project boat is , it's paid for as you go, if you can't afford it or have time for it for a little while no big deal, cover it up and start back up when your ready

I just went thru 60 pages lol.
I just got a stamas thought it was a 26 no I think is a 28 but what I seen here.
got it for 1k no trailer ,no engines , looks real nice shape fiberglass wise, inside looks shiny. has a head and galley. now this thread leads me to believe is a real good hull. otherwise doubt you would of spent so much on the restore. so , I am happy for you.
