    Well I finally got my boat, and worked on it all weekend to get it ready to go. Its nothing special, but I love it. It's an 89 Sea Nymph 19.5 ft Deep V. It had everything I was looking for in a basic boat to fish the Ohio River. I am very pleased with it, and can't wait to fish on it. I made some mods, removed some hand rails off the front, and a bunch of other things, and added rod holders. Let me know what ya think, and any advice or ideas would be great!:wink:

    chris , just lookin at the windshield on ur new boat .... it is not a walk thru i don't think ............ u might want to look into gettin one of those cam-roller anchor rope locks .......... one of those would allow u to lock ur anchor rope off the bow from behind the windshield , also u can unlock the rope from behind the windshield................ nice rig u got there !!!

    Coshocton,
    Travis, that is a nice rig. If it were me I'd get me a spot for night time, I'd get some wally world tarp and some bungees or velcro to close in the sides of that cove. Then I would have a 20 lb propane cylinder and a heater and grill, and you can fish 20 degree weather.

    When you gonna invite some of us East Central Ohio fellas down there?

    Yeah I have already started trying to come up with a way to enclose that whole thing, would be nice to have the sides covered as well.

    WHY NOT HAVE SOME CANVAS CURTAINS MADE TO WHERE THEY FIT ON THE SIDES, PUT ON WITH SNAPS, RIGHT ON THE TUBEING FOR THE ROOF? ON THE BACK SECTION HAVE THAT ONE HANG STRIGHT DOWN,THROW IT ON THE ROOF WHEN YOU RUN TO THE BACK TO ATTEND TO THE POLES.
    IT WOULD STILL BLOCK SOME WIND AND RAIN.PUT A BUNGEE CORD ON EACH SIDE CORNOR, WHERE U COULD HOOK AND UNHOOK REAL FAST FROM THE FLOOR???
    JUST A THOUGHT

    tbull, you can have clear plastic side curtains made by several shops. A lot of guys that I know get their tops and covers made by a couple of Amish men. They do great work and are in high demand.
    I've been thinking about removing my old 90 HP Mercury gas guzzler off the back of my boat for a more economical motor. How fast does that 70 push your new boat?
