    Banging noise

    Do you have bumpers hanging out over the side when running?
  4. I don't think SD is the one that needs a chill pill. What are the rules for folks commenting in for sale posts here on the forums. Other sites I visit or am registered with don't allow undo comments in for sale posts. Anyways SD good luck with the boat whether you keep it or sell it.
  5. Couldn't have said it better myself SD

    Removing hardtop

    That ain't it. Decided against removing the hardtop. Maybe could raise it up who knows. But all things considered you kind of get used to it after a bit. Except for the first screamer that takes off when you first put it in for the year. I have drop down curtains on it and will just remove them to make it easier to see the rods. Not a fan of doing that cause I have flies hanging off bungee cords so they tend to fly around a bit when cruising with the back curtains removed. Also our Avenger has the center cut out of the hard top so you don't bop your head. Other than the step down it has a stellar hull design with over sized trim tabs to really smooth out the ride in the roughest of water.

    Removing hardtop

    Don't know if you all know exactly what an Avenger model is but it is about the only PY model I know of that is step down boat. Not quite 3' of step down into the cabin. They use to mount a sport bridge on top of the hard top on many of them. The hard top is like walking on cement. These boats are wide and low slung to the water. For a 24' boat it has a wide beam at 9.5'. As for turning turtle just don't see it happening on a boat like this, it is in no way top heavy.

    Removing hardtop

    My wife and I have an Avenger made by PennYan. Excellent big water boat, wide hull with an almost perfect dead rise so it is a very dry ride in all types of seas on Lake O. However it is a step down into boat. What I am thinking is to remove the top, put a canvas covering over it on alum. bracing to make it more open and more of a one piece type of cockpit. Basically raising up the roof level with the canvas top and if need be being able to fold it down for an open bow design. Better rod visibility and just more open. Anybody do this type of modification around here? thanks for any and all info.
  12. Nicely done. Overkill is totally redoing his in shore fishing boat in the marina we stay at. His transom replacement is almost identical to how you did it. He gutted his whole boat though right down to the inner hull and stringers. Interesting to see it being done and how he does it. He is skilled I will say that. Lots of work though!
  13. I use Amish bags out either side when its rough. Takes a ton of pitch and roll out of the boat and sucks it down on the water. I have an Avenger and it has a 9.5' beam and the wide beam helps a bit too plus being a low slung boat and that helps in the wind.

    best knot for wire

    Use a leader of 50lb braid say about 20-30'. Loop the wire end, feed braid through loop from the bottom. Wrap back to the wire loop about 10 turns or so feed the tag end of the braid up through the loop from the bottom. Add a bit of spit and pull tight. Then take the braid leader end and use a palomar knot to tie on to your swivel for the divers you are using. Never get a kink in the wire, it won't cork screw on you etc.etc.
