Bodie's limited H.P. fishing boat

#1 Post by bodie » Sun Jan 13, 2013 5:16 pm

This my 1967 Starcraft Nassau with a 9.9 Game Fisher. It started out life as a closed bow, but was heavily modified by previous owner. I fixed all his rough stuff and carpeted it. Rewired the boat for lights, bilge, nav, and depth finder. I picked it up for 500.00 I probably have 2500.00 in it. It fishes good. throw two guys beer and food tackle etc. We just throw stuff all around still plenty of room...

lol Thanks But I have no Idea what Im doing... My neighbor Alex standing up. Helped me. The guy barely in pic (smoking cig) Paul hes the one that knows what hes doing. He has help me build 3 boats now.
This one is a keeper. My wallet cant take no more. I lose more money on each one. We build it I fish it, then I see another one usually bigger sell one to start another. This is my limited H.P. boat. Like I said this one is a keeper. Just the right size, as big as you can go and still get a 9.9 to do 10MPH.

Oh yeah BMR Ive seen your Star on the other site. Nice boat I remember reading your build up. You were a bit of inspiration. Have you heard of the forum "tinboats.com" worth checking out alot of info over there. If I still lived in the Delaware area I would definitely bribe you for the wife and I for a boat ride. I have her pay you :censored From your stories Im sure your better have wouldnt mind.

Anyway Ive heard these Starcrafts are good hulls. I picked mine up cheap 500.00 on a trailer. No regrets. Heres to good fishing luck in the New Year. :drink4

God bless the homebuilder. :bowdown
Two very nice rides posted here.

Here's my '99 Northwood 17'. Restored about 4 years ago. It originally only had the driver windshield. I converted it to walkthrough, including a new windshield and homebuilt passenger pod. It came out pretty OK but took forever. WAY too many angles. Never again.

Yeah they are mine sat for years in a yard in my town. I kept knocking on his door for years and never saw anyone around until one day he was out in his yard. I offered him $800, then put about 8k into it. They aluminum trailer is nice too.
