Dad

My dad, a Navy guy, used to fish out of a row boat by the Verrazano Bridge in the 70's. He started my need to be by the water...it's the Norwegian blood. I grew up fishing with friends and family,...

Jared's $$$$$

Hey Jared,

As for fuel costs, they shouldn't be too bad. If you're not running wide open all the time, you shouldn't use too much gas. To compare, I have two 25 gallon tanks on my boat. If I run...

Shoot thru hull ducer

So...I heard there's a way to use a box or coffee can with oil for my ducer. When I glued it, there was trapped air, so I got no read. I just let it sit in my bilge and as long as I was only...

Thanks!!!

When I hold it against the hull, it reads fine...it's gotta be air, even though I did my best to purge the air...what the heck do I know! :o

Do you like the Penncraft?
Is your neighbor a friend? If he is, I doubt he'd sell you floating garbage, but that could be tricky. If the boat goes bad, there will be tension between you two. I would...

I would look at Parker. You are on the right track asking everyone on this forum. If you go to a dealer, he or she will of course steer you in the direction of the boats they sell. Just remember...if...
