  1. White Knuckle at full throttle!!!..... but I think I'll get used to it and appreciate it!!!
  2. It's DIFFERENT!!! LOL!!!
  3. Surfcity...... I went after this specific Hull with a vengeance!!! I'm 53 and wanted a SMALL towable 'Backwater' Boat that could go out front on good days...... it DOES IT!!! It runs like a bigger boat with the weight I added in all I did..... and with the flare this Hull has....... it's very dry!!! I HAVE thought of going back to steering....... especially after crashing the boat within 90 seconds on the Tiller..... LOL!!!.... there's always that option in the future if I decide to go that route...... for now....... Tiller in hand!!! I ordered a Carbon Fiber Extension and have the through-wire for Trim and Tilt with the flip of a switch at the very end of the Extension........ I just have to sit down and for/reverse driving it up on the trailer...... it's taking some getting used to....... no problems so far though......
  4. Thanks Salt!!! I had to go in a build-up the deck with hatch up to the bow as the 'Crush' was both above and below the inner-deck that is my anchor locker........ then did upper and lower layering...... then outside....... left the raised patch for time so I could get back on the water...... stronger than original!!! Amazon Special on the 3-way Rocker Panel....... works fine so far........
  5. About a Month I think it was...... 'Cure' time and drying for Sealer/Paint working in the cold was hindered.... had to warm the garage with a wood stove for each lay-up and coat...... had to put a 10 inch hatch behind the Trolling motor so I could access the inside for fiberglass and all...... but I figured it out...... And YES.... I felt trainwrecked for a few minutes....... till I said "OH WELL...... back to the shop for a band-aid"...... LOL!!!
  6. Thanks JKrock!!! Several 'Makers' have had the molds for this Hull...... finding 'em with other names is pretty common..... Jersey Skiffs has 'em now.........
  7. Thanks Cadman!!! It took a bit of finagling..... but she's up and running!!!
  8. That was all last Fall...... I've already been out and on 'em!!! LOL!!!
  9. FUNNY thing IS...... I Googan'd it the first 90 seconds on the water with my first time on a Tiller..... WRECKED it!!! Still ran it to try it out..... 32 MPH on the GPS..... ran like a DREAM!!!.... BUT.... had to go back under the knife for a repair...... cut out the damage...... fiberglassed right back up...... BATTLE SCARS!!!
  10. Thanks Chris!!!
  11. Thanks Jim!!! 11 Months working on it each and every day.... little by little.....
