Are T-tops worth the expense?

I know they look very cool,this is an awfully expensive gadget for a small spot of shade.I haven't fished in 30 years and have never been on a boat that had one.What are they good for? and and can they be sourced at a cheaper price?

Re: Houseboat/displacement motor...cheap or free!

Never underestimate Redneck ingenuity.I can say that because I come from a long line of Rednecks.Actually,living in the southern most county of Appalachia,I am both a Redneck and a Hillbilly,what could be better! :D

Re: Houseboat/displacement motor...cheap or free!

Chicagoross is right.This could be a great cheap motor for the builds he mentions,but unless you can shorten the leg,it won't work for a small light Garvey or simular. This could work on a 10hp limited lake on a pontoon,on a bigish sailboat,on a small houseboat,or best of all on the builds Chicagoro...

Re: Lower's FS17

Wow,when we all bought all those dumbells years ago,could we have ever imagined that the best use they would be put to would be holding down a boat sole :wink: Flats of shotgun shells work real good too. 8)

Good lookin' boat!

Re: Mid-Atlantic Boat Builders Meet October ??th-??th, 2010

Bump... I had hoped to have had an FS17 built by the FLA meet last year,but two kids off to college and the economy spoiled that.Anyway,I'm semi-local to Charleston and know the area and will participate if this happens.Charleston Harbor Resort is probably the hottest Friday watering hole in town ri...

Re: St. Thomas trip

Let me clarify.

You do not need a passport to go to any of the USVI's,but St Thomas airport is considered an entry point in to the US,so apon leaving to return to the states you go through customes and must show proof of citizenship(birth cert)....and declare your rum of course. :lol:
