  1. Sounds like someone's jealous. The report may not be overly detailed, but its information to put in the file either way. Better than no post... B
  2. Sounds like a pretty dangerous situation. Why the heck would the Indians leave all that money in the water? B
  3. The boat would be used mainly for trolling and weekend jaunts on the big lake to anchor and swim with the family. It doesn't need to be fast... Either way, the seller has stopped communicating with me, so I'm letting it pass. There is also some storage issues which need to be addressed. Thanks for all the input. The search continues... B
  4. Good, I had about the same thoughts on the HP too. Although I like the idea of a back up motor. 40HP beats no HP in a pinch. Waiting on interior photos before I move any more on it anyway. Thanks for the input. B
  5. I might be going to look at a 19' Islander in the next few days. Its powered with twin 40HP evinrudes. This is a bit of a non-traditional config, but I think there could be some upsides. The possible downside is that 80HP might be underpowered for a 19' Islander. Would it be worth getting a survey on an aluminum boat before purchase? Any thoughts, feedback on the above would be helpful. Thanks in advance! Brian
  6. Fished Holland North tonight. I think one guy might of had a fish in a cooler, but there were no kings landed that I saw from 6:00 to 8:30PM. B
  7. The body boat shop in Filmore township South of Holland is an option. I've no experience with him. I think my old boss like to use him. Body Boat Shop L.L.C.(616) 886-1209 B
  8. Its always an entertaining trip in the channel... Boats stopping, backing up, going in circles to fight fish. One boat shouting to another that he has a fish on because he is paying no attention, and the best of all... Some dude was trying to use a gaff! That's what happens when you watch too much wicked tuna LOL. B
  9. Good report, been wondering about the GC tourney results. B
  10. Yup, bottom paint, or evidence of bottom paint gets a pass. From what i've been able to discern. its almost impossible to keep a slipped boat "dry" over the years.
  11. What are some good indicators that a boat would have potential for problems, other than blatently obvious signs like blistering or soft spots? I have my glass boat choices down to Tiara, Slickcraft(pre AMF), and four winns. Aluminum choices are still pretty open, I like the multipurpose abilities of an aluminum boat, but in all reality, this boat will see 90+% Lake MI.
