I am having a friend add a livewell between the front seats of my 19' bowrider. Right now the dimension of that area ia 41" l x 18"w x 16"d.I think this is too much space for a livewell as well as I am concerned it would be too much weight in the front of the boat, even 1/2 full.Does anybody have dimensions on livewells from factory boats? I fish for salmon in spring and fall and bass andwalleye in the summer. the salmon are between 28" to 36" long, the bass and walleye much smaller.I don't wish to turn my boat into a submarine.
2MADAKAT,you can buy them at Cabbellas or Basspro shops relatively inexpensive.BTW went to "Stef and Kars" the other day.Looks like a pretty good shop.Hope it works out for him.We can use another good mechanic around this area.
Yeah, The island of Mauritus off the African coast. Surrounded by water. Next time your in, take a look at my fishing machine, the 19' Bayliner that is being redone. Ask him to see the pictures of some of his other projects; you will be surprised.
Yeah,I saw it the day I was in.Nice job and boat.He definately knows his stuff.Hope we can keep him around here for a long time.Got some great ideas from him the day I was in on working on my boat.Now I just have to get at it.BTW how did you make out with your live well?I have cabbella's catalogue and bass pro's if you'd like to take a look at some.
I shortened the livewell by 13" in length and am moving the pump to one of the outside storage units. We just finalized the layout of the hatches today.Hopefully in two weeks, there will be a big difference in the boat. I am also having him put in two locking rod lockers down both sides, able to handle 4 - 7' rods each. Thanks for the offer of the catalogues, but I have been using a livewell I built out of a coleman cooler for six years now and wanted a built in one for this boat.I can hardly wait to get using it; summer is sliding by far too fast.
2MADAKAT,saw your boat with the new addition.Looks like its gonna work fine for ya.Do you go to Mitchell's bay a lot for bassin.I love the smallies down there.Gonna get Eric to all the floor and stringers for me.Just to big a job for me.will hopfully have it their next week when he's got room in the shop.
We usually hit Mitchell's bay 4 or 5 times a year, but last year we have started trying our luck at Cedar cove. 1/2 hour from home instead of an hour +. My buddies and I also spend a weekin September bass fishin up north. Last year it was Pigeon lake. This year it will be Buckhorn.Good luck on your boat, just remember you'll have to wait in line. And give him the time and I guarantee you'll be happy with the work and price.
