  • The Official Sea Nymph Forum for seanymph Boat Owners

You Can post pictures, Ask questions about your sea nymph or other seanymph boats . You can also post up pictures of any old broshures of any and all sea nymph boats and models that you may have lieing around. Anything seanymph here goes and is allowed!

    Re: The Official Sea Nymph Forum for seanymph Boat Owners

    Ever since I have owned a 14 ft 141 FM Sea nymph I fell in love with the way sea nymph boats where built and designed.

    I liked the way sea nymph boats all had higher sides and higher transoms even down to the smallest tinnys



    My first Seanymph was a 1989 141 FM ( Fishing Machine ) Even though it was in great shape I restored it back to like new factory condition by replacing the floors and painting it. I purchased it for $1900 and it came with a 25 hp yammy oil injected with electric start!


    What i know about the boat:

    14 and a half feet long floatation under floor side walls and bench seats, Very high transom, Max hp 35

    wieght 340 pounds without motor

    beam 56 inches

    Here are some pictures

    The best way I know how to post pictures just so you know is to open a photo bucket account at www.photobucket.com Then upload your photos after opening a free account. Then when you post a reply on this page press the little mountain that says insert image! Then on photobucket when you click on one of your uploaded pictures underneath the picture in photobucket it will say direct link. Copy and paste this link into where it says insert image. (this was for some people who are not very good with computers, Hope it helped some)

      I then sold her and moved up to a 1982 17 ft sea nymph center console model is 171 sea nymph striper


      What I know about the boat is: That there is no built in fuel tank.

      The boat without motor is 750 pounds and is 17 and a half feet long with a very large 83 inch beam.

      Very high 30 inch side gunnels as well as a very high rear transom back splash.


      Live bait well under the center console front seat and dry storage under the foward casting deck and dry storage under the aluminum bench swing back seat. Max H.P is 100 H.P


      The one I had came with a 50 H.P merc 3 cycl 2 stroke and it handled very nice.

      She was very easy to trailer and I even had her out in the atlantic ocean quite a few times. She performed with a very dry ride. And did not pound that much going over wakes and waves.


      This boat is still missed by me to this day! I wish I never sold it!

      I repaired the floor and painted it! Other then that she was a pleasure to own and very well planned and designed hull!

              Sounds great! Try to get some pictures up! Also if you have a brosure and specs of the boat take pictures or scan the brosure and post those up as well.

                Re: The Official Sea Nymph Forum for seanymph Boat Owners

                I have a '73 16R utility boat that I've modified for fishing, I'm pushing her with a '58 evinrude 35hp. When I bought the boat it had been sitting for about 20 years and was in need of some tlc. Ended up striping the bottom of the hull completely in order to re-buck the rivets, stop some corrosion issues and apply Gluvit to all the seems. Also painted the bottom with a two-part epoxy called Aquaply M, added security against leaks and future corrosion, seems to be holding up well so far. I then removed some of the bench seats to open up the boat and added a casting deck up front. Thinking of adding a floor this spring for hull strength. she has a bit more flex than I like especially when hitting heavy chop (3 foot plus waves) at high speeds, I added the side rails for support initially but it's not enough. The only problem I have is that previous owner cut the transom down making it a little hairy when fishing in the great lakes,but thats why its got a bilge pump. Awesome fishing boat over all.

                      Started my fifth boat rehab, this one: "89" Sea Nymph GLS195 Right from the keel, all work done by myself including the upholstery, motor rebuild, gauges, wiring you name it. It's been a fun project, probably the best so far. I'll keep the pics up as I finish. Making this one into a Musky casting machine.

                              I don't see any problem with doing that. The biggest concern with any boat is weight, but a piece of 1/2 inch Advantech sheeting wouldn't be to much wieght. You could paint it both sides before installing it, keep the rough side up and it will be a "no slip" surface. If you carpet it, put the smooth side up, carpet adhesives work better on the smooth side.
