Well after listening to all of you guys and the warm weather kicking in I had to do something. I found a 19' grumman and a new 2.5 merc 4 stroke for 1200.00. It's in great shape and only a couple of battle scratches. I'll have to wait to afford the HB but this will get me out on the water wetting a line.
I remember reading about one member spraying the inside with bed liner. Just wondering how that worked out and who did it.
Sid, I think that I remember you doing the bottom of yours but do you or anyone else have pictures of how you bolted the lift. Makes me a little nervious dilling holes in it.
For those of you that have larger motors on the back of yours, What sizes are you using and what do they weight?
Thanks for all of the help and inspiration.
