    Real nice hull to start with Jason, I'm sure there are lots of plans rolling around in that head of yours!! A nice black ETEC 90 would look great on the transom EH.

    Glad to see you are keeping busy!

    Nice looking project there. Looks like a great walleye boat potentially.

    You could easily get away with twin outboards with that nice big splashwell

    So, yah, if one of the boys fall in, I do believe they'll be cold and wet! No doubt I guide the boys to what they must/should/ought to do, but, I'm also a "natural consequences" kinda father

    You know, I'm glad you mentioned the stern bench/deck I built for the previous SN. Interesting thing happened after I spent all that time building out that totally awesome set up - I didn't really use it.

    WHAAAAA?????

    Yah, so check it out....

    For the bench, I really didn't end up using it very much cuz we don't really cruise a whole lot as a family. We either fished or we tubed. For tubing I never had passengers sit at the bench as I need a clear view of my tuber and simple weight distribution up front ya know. So yah, awesome bench that didn't get used actually.

    So for the stern casting deck, well, I found I didn't really use that very much either. I'm not a bass fisherman and instead troll for most of what I fish for. The rest of the time we are just still fishing or drifting. Well, yah, I guess I just didn't find that I was standing up on that stern deck very much at all really.

    So yup, I spent a whole ton of time, effort, energy and a small chunk of money to build that stern side set up. It was pretty cool! Too bad I didn't use it or need it Hey, looked great on paper, seemed great in theory, not very useful in my world I suppose.

    What does that mean for this new SN? Yup, just looking for simple deck space here

    See, my skull isn't too horribly thick
    I'm totally preaching to the choir here, 'cause you've built a bunch of these and know all of their strengths, weaknesses, and inconveniences. But, I will say, as someone who's done a pretty limited amount of trolling with a full size splashwell, it really does limit mobility. Because I only use artificial lures, all I need is a cooler in the cockpit, but it's still tight. One other person really maxes out my 18'er for clearing lines and fighting fish. If you can make that thing smaller I think you might be happier with the setup. Mine's staying 'cause I cheaped out and used the OEM fuel tank that goes under there.

    Mostly just chiming in to follow your progress, though. Cool rig, and I know it'll be way cooler when you're done!

    If you are going to use this boat for fishing, I think you are going to want to modify the rear to have a workable casting deck back there...

    People (including your two boys) are going to make those two splash-well sides a "makeshift" deck for fishing off the back, which is a recipe for falling in... (and the water tends to be chilly up your way). See below pic where my buddy in the background is fishing (pre restore):



    yes, the mod is a little tricky, but I think a convertible bench seat/casting deck (like you had in your other boat) is a PROVEN WINNER of a set up for you...

    Just my .02...

    I'm hoping I can get a fuel tank up front like I had in my previous SN, I should be able to pull that off.

    I know I can fit at least one batt under the splashwell, a second might be a little tight but I think I can swing it

    Bingo on the splashwell! Awesome on an 18'+ but on a 16'...it's still cool but just seems a little out-of-place.

    I do hate the thought of all the extra work to cut it out, bent it up, build it out, and trim everything to look nice. That would be a lot of extra stuff to do compared to leaving it.

    I suppose another option would be to cut hatches for fish box/cooler on one side and a baitwell on the other....


    That might not be such a bad idea maybe. Good use of that space and would save me a bunch of build time.

    Hmmmmmmmm.......

    Yah me too lake, lots of ideas at the moment anyhow. She has great bones so we'll see what we can do

    But ill tag along anyway hehe
    Yup, that's exactly what happened actually. The GOOD NEWS is I'm pretty sure a glasser will need to be sacrificed to power her up again. Then, all will be right again

    Yah, my other Sea Nymph was rated at 90. I'm sure this one being bigger could easily handle more. Really, it'll come down to finding just the right power for just the right price.

    I know this boat will be IT, for a very very long time. So I'd really like to score a nice EFI/DFI at a good price. I think I'd be fine spending some cheddar on one. Unfortunately, I think that even a screaming deal would be outside of what I can afford, bummer

    HA! Yah you noticed that eh. That actually rode home on the bow like that, I didn't notice it till I got home. Musta been off of one of the dealers yard tractors or something I think.

    _________________________________________________

    So I tried to lift the trailer tongue yesterday, even with all the snow shoveled out and the boat draining in the warm temps I still can't lift it by hand. This thing is heavy!

    I can't wait to dig into all that soaked foam sub deck, that will be such a joy
