Now for salt water that would be a decent boat to have..
I don't fish with it, it was a joke, hence the funny face

I bad sorry...

Good deal Josh, that is a nice looking boat you have.. I do not think you could find a deal like that up here. The boat I was given I used to drive my old friend that lived next door to me. I will post a pic of it once the weather gets better up here. I will try and get one with the old motor and then my new motor. It is a deeper boat which is great for some of our bigger lakes..

I ordered the stuff theat Josh reccomended..I'm very pleased...Josh reccomended Marine Tex..there are a few different types of Marine Tex products according to what the need is..My need was a leaky seam...

The stuff I bought off ebay is Gluvit ...it's a resin similiar to contact cement..you mix it { Stir it} 5 to 1 with a liquid hardener that comes with it..I mixed mine in a clean cat food can..After I ruffed up the area I applied it with a 1 inch paint brush..

After 12 hours you are left with a 1/16th inch hard as glass sealer..that is also flexible...I love it..I JBWelded the seam first and sanded it good..2 or threee times..then I applied the sealer..as well as over the rivets.

Looks great.

That looks like some great stuff Chuck and I hope it works out great for you..

I recieved my new boat motor yesterday afternoon.. I bought it off I-Boats.com in Utah and it was shipped out of BONITA SPRINGS, FL.. I am not sure about what part of Fl it is in. I am glad to finally have it up here though..

Took the boat for a spin yesterevening

Went to Saddle Creek which has been DEAD...
I had NO leaks and the motor starts up on the first pull.

I repainted it as well

I had one hit while flipping and boated a small 14 incher casting a worm on a sandbar..
I finallly got my boat back ..praise be to God.

I tried my bigger boat yesterday afternoon. It run great and was it every quite with that new motor on it. I wished they would of had them years ago. When I first started it started hard. I am guessing from the oil and stuff put into it at the factory.
