Does anyone have an opinion on the AGM batteries. I tried two in my duck boat build last year. A small motorcycle one as a starter and another smaller one for lights. They have been very good batteries and seem to be holding up well. I like that you can mount in any position and that they don't leak.

Hello all my Tolmanites.....

I have been divorced....part of the divorce is that I must sell the boat project.  This pains me to no end.......

With that being said, does anyone have any suggestions as to what I might do with the boat hull?  I had a few offers from some friendly folks via private messaging many months ago, and I plan to get back to them...

Currently the boat is sitting in the EXACT condition as the last post of my boat builders blog:

I think the only addition is that the inside of the cuddy was painted white.  The boat is sitting on blocks under a cover, with A frame lifting devices and chain hoists overhead.

Can this boat be sold to someone interested in picking up a 28 foot Great Alaskan project???

I may be able to include all of the extra items (whatever leftover fiberglass, epoxy, boat parts, etc, please check the blog for all details of what I had), however that was not part of the judgement............

If someone was interested, they would have to go to Palm Coast, Florida with a trailer and load the boat and take it away....

I can't tell you how sick I am about this, but that is another discussion.  Any advice???

Hi Mike
I built my 25 jumbo as a center console. It is awesome!! Finished it dec 23 2013 left Vt on dec24 . Fished it 51 days out of marathon fla. the furthest offshore was22 miles. Running a 130 Etec I get approx. 4 mpg . cruises great at 20mph and I can get 33 if needed. I built a little heavy with deeper stringers and more glass than the book.and the hull is rock solid. I am in VT now but will be back in marathon Jan 1 . If I ever get anyone over here who is not so computer handicapped I will post photos

Center Console is wining at this time. 

Be sure to invest in good rain gear then, you'll need it in South Florida from April through September.

Thanks Jerry,
All of the parts are inbound and I'll post some pictures once I get them installed. Have a great weekend.

I have been thinking about putting a permanent tank into my mother in laws pontoon so I can stop hauling 6 gallon tanks for her. The damn tank is in a terrible spot to get to Angry

I'll do some measuring and see if the compartment that is in the right spot for an easy-stand-on-the-dock fill location will fit that tank and price out the other odds and ends needed. If it will work then we'll talk!

15 gallons would be a nice size, fill it once a month instead of every week. One of my neighbors does marine gas delivery to your dock I can pay him to do it then!!!

I did order the #4 cables from Genuinedealz and had them put the lugs on for me. I was excited to move forward :-)

Top quality marine cabling there, with it all in the transom are you should be fine. Mine is under the console so I have a 12 foot run to fret about.

Fiberglass supply in Burlington is a great place to get fabrics and epoxies and are very helpful. They have system3 as well as a "budget" brand called Resin Research, which is priced about the same as Aeromarine. I've been using resin reaserch for my last 5 or so gallons. It's 2:1 and so far I'm very happy with it. It may be a bit more viscous than Aero, but I find it to wet out just fine.

Btw, you should come by for another visit sometime this summer. If I ever decide enough is enough with fairing, I'll be painting the jumbo soon.
