FS17 motor,trailer,hardware?

If the FS17 will really do 30mph with a 25hp, then I'm going with a Yamaha F25. Ed's marine in Richmond VA seems to have great prices! Defender Marine seems to have great selection and prices on all sorts of stuff,seating,controls,etc. I'd like to find online source for an aluminum trailer that can ...

Yamaha f40?

I would really like a new motor as well.The f40 looks about right as it is their largest three cylinder and only weighs in at 183 lbs.Heck,a Suzuki 25 is over 200 lbs.

Ed's Marine in Richmond seems to have the best prices.

maybe sell to a pro guide?

I was just in Charleston for a little guided inshore fishing.He described his boat as a "lightweight custom epoxy" rig.It was nowhere near the finish level of your boat. With gas getting more dear, a pro might just understand the value of a strong light boat.

good luck,

We have what we just call Pike around here.I was very suprised to find out at age 12 that some fish have teeth.

We still have a few Alligator Gars down here.I watched a good three footer for a while last summer,kinda ugly/scary/cool all at the same time.

Bob, Get ready to be aquainted with the fine southern establishment called the"meat and three".Think blackeyed peas,collard greens,fried okra,chicken livers,cat fish,and yes macaroni and cheese will be considered a vegitable. You will be 2 hours from Charleston,an hour or so from Jocassee,lots of pl...

Pastor Bob, I live in Easley,about 40 or so miles from Clinton.Let me know if I can provide info on the area.We have nice man made lakes around here. If you get to the place where you need a friend who will NOT be a future parishioner,let me know. A couple of years ago a couple came down from Michig...

Hey Doug, Isn't that Archie Bunker's chair from All In the Family? :wink: not sure Archie could be trusted with the BB gun though.I've always been told that a man who builds a boat needs a place to "sit and think,and sit and drink",so it fits right in. OT-for any birders in the crowd.Back in the lat...

Its a pretty big two car garage,but chasing my wife out of her space for any extended period of time is REALLY out of the question.I would do most of the sanding after rolling the hull out of the garage.

I think the motor well on the LB22 is the real deal breaker on the engine swap idea. As far as my LB22 project goes,and this is a little selfish on my part,I really want to hear the results of the first LB22 sea trial before I jump in. I envision the LB22 as a very efficient and elegant alternative ...
