    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!

    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.

    My boat is actually being built for the same thing. It only a 17' boat (170ss). I'm converting it from walkthru to tiller. 65HP Johnson tiller, 50" livewell, built in Musky box, small rear deck....

    I have one following the build-up on tinboats.net too.

    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.

    Give it a try, if you can stand in it without the floor it will be a whole lot nicer with it!

    I just stumbled across this thread and glad to see someone actually started a Sea Nymph thread. I was beginning to feel alone Well here is my beautiful lil lady. I acquired her about 3 years ago from my grandparents and decided to do a full modern restore. She is a 1986 Sea Nymph Fish n' Ski SS155. She is powered by a 1985 50hp Evinrude model E50BELCO. I currently have a thread on here with tons of pics and progress to date. This should be the year she makes her splash and I can't wait. Here are some before and after shots... check out the thread for more pics.

    Here is also some specs on the boat that I could find through research. I contacted Lowe since they bought out Sea Nymph and this is what they sent to me

    Mr. Simmons,
    Unfortunately we do not have a 1986 Sea Nymph catalog.
    We received very little documentation when we bought them out.
    However from the 1984 catalog, it lists a SS-155 Fish & Ski.
    The capacities should be similar but are not exact, they should be used as a reference only.
    Max. Persons- 825lbs or 5 people
    Max. Weight- 1250lbs
    Max. H.P.- 80
    Hull Weight- 615lbs
    Remember these are not the specs for your particular boat, however they should be fairly close.

    The length is 15.5 feet (hense SS155) aluminum hull

    This is cool that Sea Nymph owners finally have our own thread!

    I posted something last year regarding my 1995 Sea Nymph for a deck replacement, here is the thread: http://forums.iboats.com/showthread....18#post2588518

    I figured it would be easier to get some questions answered on this thread since it is an old thread. I was not able to start the restoration due to financial issues but am hopeful that I will be able to get it done this year.

    I want to get this done so I can get out on Erie and the Detroit River for some Walleye action this spring and summer! I haven't been on either bodies for several years and I am itching to get out there. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy panfishing as well, but Walleye are so much fun and not to mention some of the best eating fish going!

    A couple things to keep in thought, use a good grade carpet if you want it to last, I like to keep the sheeting for the deck at 1/2" cause of weight, stainless staples for the parts you fold and staple. I use a exterior contact spray to adhere the carpet to the wood. I just recently started using Advantech sheeting for decking, it has a fifty year warranty at which Im probably only expecting 15 to 20 years on a boat and it's a lot less expensive than marine plywood. I'm not a big fan of screws, they always seem to work there way loose, I use 3/16 x 3/4 aluminum x aluminum rivets, you can obtain them from a variety of places. A fifty pack is about 8 bucks.

    I think it is great to have a forum for seanymph Boat owners. Since there is one I have a question on parts for my 1993 14 ft Sea Nymph. I need a few things but I am looking for a part that has come up missing. It is located in back starboard side of the boat that is made of aluminium and is the part that is use to carry the boat. It has a handle and is tranangle shaped. I would like to know how I could find this part?

    Thanks,

    I went through a simular search for a larger boat and came up empty, these parts were cast from molds that aparently no longer exist, I made a cad drawing for mine and had it machined in alluminum from a buddys machine shop.
