    Default Looking for a Grumman

    Hey all-

    Looking for a Grumman 17-19 double ender or square back. Just missed a 17 off CL but not a lot show up on there.

    Thanks for any leads!

    There's a couple on alaskaslist right now. One for a very good price if its in decent shape. I just sold an old sport boat yesterday.

    I'm waiting anxiously for a call back on the 19'. I have a sport boat already and love it!

    The sport boat is the 19' with about 4 ft lopped off the back. Both great boats. Both are getting hard to find around here.

    When looking, keep in mind that not all Grumman boats of the same design/length are created equally. Over time, there have been two different material thicknesses used. If your use is limited mostly to lakes and not dragging over gravel/rocks, the thinner material should work fine. If you intend to use it on more rivers where you are more likely to hit rocks or need to drag over gravel on a regular basis, you might want to make sure to look for the thicker material. I believe the first ones were the thicker material. They then moved to a thinner material and may have gone back to the thicker material since then but not sure.

    Just something to look at. I know for me, I have no use for the ones with thinner material.

    I agree completely with anchskier on material thickness. I own a 17' made out of .032 with a sail kit. It still floats, but sure is beat up.

    When Grumman became Marathon, they went to .040. They have since gone back to the original thickness .050...

    I thought this was the case as well when I had my 19'. But the sport boat has a beam of 43 inches and the 19' beam is 40". This makes the 19 foot more efficient for long trips I would think. But I really like the sport boat.

    The 19 SQ & the sport , are both great boats, but both different , it all depends on what you will use it for , if it is a fishing boat you want the sport
    is the best , for long halls the 19 is the best for the job , as I see it , could be wrong , SID
