I like it MM, what kind of wood ya gonna use?

I like some room to stand up and fish though. I still think you should try restoring a boat like this Lyman.

There's a Lyman (or a lookalike) for free in a yard on Long Hill Rd. in Guilford Ct. Probably rotted to death. It has one of those 1970's giant Johnson outboards attached too....

Sounds just like mine. :D A 16 footer with a 1961 75HP Johnson. Included in the deal was a rotted transom and rails. Needs new decking, windshield, reclinched and a few million other things but it's all mine. tongue.gif
