          OK, so I technically did a little work on this boat, it was beautiful day outside today!

          So the other day Willy stopped by to trade me some salmon fillets for my tandem axle trailer left behind from the latest nasty glasser donor boat. Totally awesome, sea salt, fresh black pepper, butter, lemon....


          He also threw in a nice single axle trailer for nothing, sweet!!

          So, I decided to swap out the trailer this SN came with for the bigger/beefier one that Willy gave me.

          Now I carefully considered using the Dozer method of pulling the boat off the trailer. Bah, I went with the standard Keeper strap and two big forest products for the lift...


          That one will be up for sale here shortly ^^^.

          And then loaded up on the new one...


          Nice big ride

          It looks a little awkward up there but I've got about 8" I can drop it down yet since it was originally set up for a big ol glasser.

            Following your lead on this one Jason. Many of the changes you plan on I will be doing to my Springbok project, albeit a 15.5 ft. Had considered a rear casting deck but space is an issue and I mulled over how much I would use it. Like you, I troll more than cast. Looking forward to the build.

                Yumm tasty salmon

                A successful trailer swap is always a huge accomplishment just ask Sig! I have one in my near future as well and hope it goes as smoothly as yours.

                  Hi fellas!

                  AOK, so, this Sea Nymph is next up for a rebuild. The goal is to have this done for spring fishing action. Ah, yah, that would actually be spring of 2017. This will be sort of a father/son project. Ryan and I have a spring trip planned in May so we are going to gut and rebuild this together, should be fun!

                  So, the rig got pulled from the woods and backed into the garage. First up is pulling everything off. After a few hours of fighting with rusted screws and bolts and whatnot, all the snaps, bow rails, fittings, consoles, whind shield, and all the other rigging stuff was off along with all the carpet peeled otta there...




                  I talked earlier about this back deck...


                  I still haven't decided what I'd like to do with that. At this point I'm thinking I'll leave it all in place and cut hatches into them for storage. But first, I have to deal with this....


                  Oh my gosh do I hate pour in foam.........

                  Ryan is learning to hate it too!

                    Dude!!

                    Nice to see yous working on it,...

                    Just my opinion here,.....I'd replace all the foam in transom area,...I here that is the stuff that keeps a boat floating,..

                    I know when I rebuilt a "tinny" years ago I was tempted to remove it for storage,...But I also knew I was gonna be fishing Lake Superior with that little boat and wanted every chance I could get if it went "sideways",....

                      Yah, most of the flotation will be replaced, but not with the worthless pour in garbage

                        Hey man just get you a glasser and be done with it. Great to see your son taking an intrest in working on boats. Mine aren't to keen on it. Must be the itching.

                          Plans for power?

                            Huh....never thought that was the reason my girls would rather watch from a distance....but makes sense.
                            Tagging along to see what all the fuss about these tin cans is about. Lol.

                              Good to see you getting started on the SN. Hopefully your son will stick with you for a good part of the build. My daughter helped with the flotation. She enjoyed snapping the pieces apart after I scored them with the razor. She also liked fitting them into the boat.

                              I think if you make the storage areas air tight, like maybe made out of coolers, they will provide enough flotation to offset the missing foam they displace. I know you will be stuffing the rest of the voids full of more foam than it originally came with too so I'm sure you'll be good to go. Good luck, I'm tagging along.

                                This one will be strictly for fishing. It may head out on the big lake from time to time but the major use will be inland lakes and rivers. It'll be durable, no fuss, no messing around, no fancy schmancy stuff.

                                I actually picked up power for this a while ago but I don't think I post up what I got, check it out...
