Re: PG 25, July 2017, PangaRon

The Panga has given me 200 hours on the water! She rides great, handling all kinds of Central California seas. She rides really well up swell, but is a little challenged by a following sea. I was in 5-7 foot swells yesterday and have to really match the speed of the wave or she will slide sideways a...

100 hours on the boat! http://gallery.bateau2.com/albums/userpics/88974/normal_IMG_4063.jpg The catch!

I put together a YouTube video of the build if you would like to see a time lapse slide show. I can't say enough about the help of this forum and the folks at boatbuilder central. I wouldn't be enjoying my finished boat without their help! Follow me on Instagram @boatdays https://youtu.be/TivKy5yKZ9s

Fastener Fail

I am looking for advise on how to properly repair a Radon 16. The builder used fasteners along on the edge where the top meets the hull.

Re: PG22 or PG25?

Take a look at my post and specs in Finished Boats. It may help you decide. I fished Fonda’s PG22 and loved it. I also love my PG25 with a 90 HP. If you’re staying with the 60 HP, my 2 cents is to stick with the PG22.

Re: PG 25, July 2017, PangaRon

Consider how you will use the boat and pick the one that works for you. * You wil...

Thanks NavyBuilder13! Let me know if I can help and thank you for your service!

Tom, The new prop allowed me to gain 8 mph top speed to 30 mph when it's flat calm! The fuel economy dropped slightly from 4.8 to 4.6 miles to the gallon. Thanks again for your help!
