    Default Mini boats

    Adam brought up a fun idea. It would be a riot if a bunch of us picked up some mini boats (like an Addictor) to run around the Delta. I like the idea. If I remember right, Todd (Cat Sass) has a little 12-14' OB tunnel in his armada.






    All fun and games. For the size range, I think I'd prefer something like this though.







    However, we could get all crazy 'n shit and go completely home made...

    OR...

    Ask Steve (NP) about these pics I snapped from one of my Delta books...

    Back in the day, we just called them boats. Our biggest was 14'

    We ran a lot of 8' and 10' flat bottom boats and a few hydros, you were king shit if you had 50 horsepower.

    We did have some good times in those bathtubs. (the name of the company that built the fiberglass tubs was Scamco.) 3 loco guys ran the company.

    (I meant local, Ted, Craig, and myself)

    Freudien slip!

    Stop worrying about little boats and get back to work on the 28. Need to see more progress pictures.

    Always thought one of those ThunderDucks would be a blast!

    No matter how much I sand, it still looks the same in the pics.

    Do you know if any of those tubs still exist? If you've got a line on any, I'd be honored to run Hookie Day in one

    lol hey i try to help others with words of encouragement...

    this wise old guy with a bunch of fast boats once told me: to hell with how fast your boat is or the latest doo dad bolts on's just get to where you are going and have fun doing it!

    the other wise guy standing next to him says: your gas gauge should move as fast as the cooler gauge i said explain: you start the day with a full tank and a full cooler by half tank you should have a half cooler by time you have a empty gas tank the cooler should be empty also and that equals a awesome day on the water, if you empty the cooler faster than your gas gauge then your rushing thru life and will never get what i am talking about old guy
    the shit i had to try and balance out in life to enjoy boating

    I have a 10'r that I bought restored. I have Tohatsu 3cyl 40hp that was turned into a 50hp. Thing should haul ass when it's done! I've been thinking about selling it though. Still needs to be rigged.
