Re: lm18 stringer spacing

Been a while but I just pulled up my plans. Looks to be 14" to outside edge from center line. So the outside edges should be 28 inches apart. Hope this helps. Disclaimer:. When I built there were still a few changes being made to the plans. I'm not sure I have the final version after some things wer...

Re: LM18 in Perry, GA

Another trip to carrabelle on the books. We ran all over the place. Caught a bunch of fish. Mostly short trout, a few keepers, some good size flounder, a few redfish, and of course lady fish, sharks and catfish. The boat did well. Made my first night run, that was kindof spooky yet peaceful. My olde...

Re: LM18 in Perry, GA

Cool thanks. After you run at high speed and trim the jake plate high up, It would be cool to understand how high the cavitation plate it from the hull bottom before you start sucking air. I have the console primed hopefully I can get it painted and install all the components. I'll let you know if ...

Re: LM18 in Perry, GA

Question for you on motor height. When you are running full how high do you have your motor? Right now I have my trim plate about even or a dash above the bottom of the boat. Because the hull is so flat I think I can go up a hole. Thoughts? I can tell you I can almost raise the JP all the way up an...

Re: LM18 in Perry, GA

As for motor setup on my LM18, I have found some success, but have ordered one final prop to try. 1st Add motor wedges, our LM's don't have enough negative trim, the shims add 5 degrees of negative trim that allow you to tuck the motor under the to bring the nose down at higher speeds.

Great looking boat. What brand bean bag chair did you purchase?

I got the classical round in large. Less than #10 and kept Katie happy for two long hot days on a small fishing vessel

J,
Great pics, good to see how much enjoyment y’all are getting out of your LM18. Where did you get your registration number decals? I like the look. Thanks

They we about $50 if I remember but I thought they helped give the boat a finished look
