Re: GF16 For Sale

Thanks man...I don't need to sell it. I haven't been using it and since we moved from FL I just don't enjoy the fishing up here. I was spoiled with all that clear water and knowing where the fish were.

GF16 For Sale

I hate to do it but the GF needs to go. The boat was started in 2014 and finished in 2015. It has a 2009 Nissan 20 hp in very good condition with a Powertech SS prop, Lowrance Elite4 GPS/fishfinder combo, stick anchor, two 3 gal tanks and a 1999 Magic Trail trailer with new tires and bearings. I for...

Re: How much of a difference does 50 lbs. make....

If the skiff is to stern heavy it will draft more, get on plane slowly, and might porpoise. You can fix the plane issue and porpoising with tabs, but being unbalanced or stern heavy will make it harder to pole it well. Looking in to a AGM riding lawn mover battery or ATV battery. Small light weight...

Re: Repton's GF16

Thanks, Gary, for your very constructive comments! ha, a jon boat is PRECISELY what I want it to look like (see the first pic in my build thread). Let me say that I will be using this boat to fish the stumps and backwaters of lakes Talquin and Seminole...never, do I intend to take it out in the fla...

Re: GF16 In The PSL

Gary, Couple of questions... You built exactly by the plans, correct? You indicate that your boat floats in 4" and am curious to know if you could provide some info as to your weight distribution when its floating at 4". Like, say, 2 half full 3 gal. gas cans in the bow, motor and battery (what siz...

Re: Repton's GF16

There have been some heavily modified GF boats on this forum that had less than stellar results. A center console GF12 and a tunnel GF16 come to mind. I was contemplating eliminating the mid seat and all that, but got worried about the final results and built it as designed and I'm glad I did. I lik...

Re: GF16 In The PSL

Thanks Bobby, Tally is my hometown btw :) I'm with Jim, stick steer from the mid seat would be ideal in this boat. I like his idea of the fuel tank in the mid seat as well in this configuration. I run solo a lot and you need weight forward in that scenario, which was why I put my fuel up front. I us...
