Outstanding and Congrats!  I love the visibility in your pilothouse.  Looks like that Yamaha will be a great motor.

Announcements / Another Tolman launched!
« Last post by calmwaters on September 16, 2017, 09:48:22 PM »

I recently launched my 22.5' Widebody. The build took me about 500 hours done over 15 months. It's powered with an Etec 135ho that Paul F. has recommended previously from the totem garage. I still have plenty of finish work and improvements that can be done over the winter but I'm glad I got it in the water this summer. My wife kept a blog with plenty of pictures for the build at http://chrisboatproject.blogspot.com/. The descriptions in the blog were kept very simple since it was intended for friends and family without a building or boating background. Thanks to all on fishyfish, this community has been an endless source of ideas, inspiration and answers to confusion. I really enjoyed the build process and look forward to building more boats in the future.

Thanks, Chris

My oldest just turned 9, and my other two are 7 and 5 as well :)

This sounds like a great trip!  And sadly, I have not started building my Tolman yet.  I hope to start a Tolman next Spring.  I'm working on a Bateau FS 14 to nail down some skills, and that will be complete some time this Winter.  Stories like this one make me want to abandon the FS 14 project and get started on the Tolman Jumbo 24 of my dreams.

Glad to hear you are gonna launch.  That is awesome.

No need for a kicker link to take a ride.  On my maiden trip I didn't even have lights wired up.  Had to race back to the ramp as I pushed the time a bit but so worth it.

It's gonna be great.

Dave, if I launch or pull out when people are around, I usually get a lot of questions and lookers. Boat people are a funny bunch, especially when it isn't a production type boat.  Out here, in the PNW, welded aluminum is the big rage, but when you put them next to a boat like a Tolman or a GA, most look kind of clunky. They bring back smooth lines from a classic kind of look!

Splashing the boat tomorrow afternoon.  I think the Admiral is going with, so she can take a video or two.

I still need a steering link arm for the kicker motor, but I'll leave it up and tilted away from the main OB.  I went and filled up this afternoon and put 55 gallons in the belly tank.  I'll have to put a 20 gallon tank under the captains bench this winter.  I don't believe 55 gallons is enough for the tuna fishing trips I want to go on.

The Jumbo got a lot of attention today at the gas pumps....  should be interesting at the ramp tomorrow.
