  • 1967 Sea Nymph, 14'

    Well guys, I traded in the 67' Starcraft Sea Scamp for a little bigger boat. It's not a Starcraft, but it's aluminum. This sucker is wide, 62 inches! The Scamp was a cartopper so it was a little guy. This boat is more suited for the St. Clair River and the Bays of Lake St. Clair.

    Here she is a 14 foot 1967 Sea Nymph. I've got no info but in 72' the wide 14 footer was called the "Big Water". It needs painting and modification. I was thinking about a casting deck. Don't know what to do at this moment. It's getting cold in Michigan so I don't know what I'll get done this fall/winter.

    So Zach got 2footitis? I see him peering over the in the second pic. Prob thinking deja vu all over again. LOL I'm guessing the camo is going away.

        Re: 1967 Sea Nymph, 14'

        Well we loved the Sea Scamp. It will always have a special place in our hearts. My philosophy is; always have a current project of some sorts. Zach has autism and the learning disabilities that go along with it. Working with his hands helps him, and me too. As soon as this one's done, it'll probably get traded too.

        Yep Ga, that camo is going, she was a duck hunting boat. I'm going to try soda blasting this time. My bro just bought a HF air compressor, AND the extended warranty. I've got the blaster, also from HF and 30 pounds of soda. It's time to strip some camo.

        My buddy from work wants the Scamp. I'll double my money over what we paid for her. My wife started adding up all the supplies it took to finish off the boat. So now she's on to me. He never came over Saturday to get the Sea Scamp so now I've got three boats on the property. I got the frying pan big time! She's just not seeing the big picture here. lol

        JB, I'm sick with MBS and so is my son. I'm glad I've found a support group here that accepts me for what I am.

          Considering how much time you & Zach got to spend working on the Scamp, and it's benefits for him to work w/ his hands, the Admiral might should look at the money spent as LESS then occupational~vocational therapy would have cost. And he got to do it w/ his dad. That may even have a greater long term benefit.

          Plus it kept YOU off the street & hopefully out of trouble.... WIN - WIN

          And another winter project for all the previous reasons sounds great too

            Any time I can spend working on a project with my boy is time well spent. Zach was a little upset at first but it's a little bigger boat that will serve our needs better. Plus for $200 you can't go wrong. He's all ready picking out colors, he likes blue.

              I'm guessing you and Zach spent more time working on the Scamp than fishing in her. So you two can do it again as more of Zach's continuing OJT. Good deal.

                Nope, we fished at least 15 times this year out of the Scamp. Between fishing and fixing we had a blast. Zach caught a couple of largies all by himself this year. He grabbed a Booyah spinner, I tied it up for him, then started rigging myself up and zzzzzz, his Zebco was screaming. he put two in the boat before I got rigged. Yep, I was proud.

                For 2 hundo I couldn't pass it up. Mama is wazzed off though. This morning she looked in the back yard and the Sea Scamp was still there. My buddy never came over to get it, he got busy. Smack another skillet shot. She got breakfast in bed and I just pan fried some NY strip for her.

                So technically I have 3 boats at the moment. hahaha.

                    Careful, as a family man, BD may want an unfinished Islander for some overnight fishing trips & so he can fix the Admiral breakfast in bed on the same trip

                      HHmmmmm. The Offshore got pushed to the side for money reasons. Karate, swimming, speech therapy, Sea Scamp. I really need to make a plan eh. Time for all the activities plus fishing and the Sea Scamp. Well no time and no money.

                      Now that you called me on it well.......... If I put a casting deck etc on the Sea Nymph....more time and money away from the offshore. OK, minimal into the SN. Ten horse Johnson (dual purpose, kicker for Offshore & slightly underpowered motor for the SN) gets done, and soda blast and paint for SN. Then Offshore time. I need to pull the 3.0 merc and go through it this winter.

                      OK I need a list, a priority list. OK Jas that's my homework for the week bro. My brother has been questioning my antics too. No more boats I promise. I'll finish all my current projects first, and eat all my veggies. Scouts honor. Assuming of course I live through the night.

                          I'd be willing to bet the Offshore would cost more and take more time to re work than this little 14 footer. But not by much on either my friend

                            Ok Jas I'm still trying to piece together a plan. This plan will include the SN and the Offshore. It needs to satisfy our need to walleye fish in the St. Clair River, and early spring smallmouth fish on Lake St. Clair. I will try and put this plan together and then map it out accordingly with priorities. The time line will be a soft one. Meaning if I miss a date oh well, this is supposed to be fun not stressful. Thanks for keeping me on task here.

                            The Sea Scamp is gone. My buddy from work took delivery of her. So we are down to 2 boats. Seeing how this thread is about the Sea Nymph here goes with some questions. The reason I wanted this boat over the car-topper (Sea Scamp) is to fit more people in it. Zach has a couple of friends at school he wants to take out. This will fit two adults and two kids no prob.

                            A) How big of a motor will this thing handle, 20,25,30??? It's 62" wide and 13'6" long. It's deep also, a big water boat so to speak.
                            B) How do you guys feel about casting decks on these tinnies? Nothing big maybe just in the bow.
                            C) Any idea what model this is. it's a '67 according to the paperwork.

                            That's all I have for now. I'm hoping to work on her over the winter, or at least until the snow starts flying.

                            Thanks
                            Don
