I've been wanting something more stable than a Jon, roomier than a Bassboat (one I could afford anyway), but able to run fairly shallow for cattin' and chasing stripers, red drum, speckled trout, and flounder in Eastern NC as well. I've been fishing in a 1977 Chapparal 15ft trihull fish n ski. Stable, but not laid out well for me and not great in the shallows. I picked up this mcKeee off Craigslist, for much less than listed. So now I am ready to go to work making it a real fishing machine! Has a 55hp Evinrude that runs good, but electric shift isn't working right, switches are good. So I will swap the 70hp 'rude from the Chap. and fix the 55hp as a side project to put on the chap for resale. I will also swap the older fishfinder, foot cont. troller and rod holders with my other stuff. First I'm going to strip the McKee down, paint it outside and spray in bedliner the inside, add a livewell/seat in front of the console, rewire with additional plugs for a removeable baitwell, lighting, etc add my VHF radio, CD Player and a bimini top. Trailer is in GREAT shape and is the original 1971 steel trailer which tells me alot about how the boat was used (or not..LOL!) Project won't take a ton of money, just alot of time, and time, I can afford!!! I'll post as I go along, with teardown beginning next week.
