‘76 Sea Nymph FM-160 Fishing Machine Boat Rebuild


Recommended Posts

Yeah man,...  I tell ya, rebuilding this boat been a project.  It seems like we always need something.  I’m lucky to have a good fishing buddy who is willing to work for Cash on the side and paid Fishing / Camping trips.  The boat rebuild has been slow, but we’ve been getting our fishing in.

The horn is 138 decibels, lol

 

Transom saver didn’t say to but, 4200 the edges.  If this boats gonna sink it’s gonna be from something else 😂 .

 

I’m looking at the Hummingbird Helix 7 Mega Di works, with the GPS and Nav.  I have seen it for around $580 ? 
 

I am anxious to post the pics of the seats I purchased,...

Anyone have any experience with www.GreatLakesSkipper.com ?   
 

I ordered black plastic drain backs from them. I think they were about $6 for two.  I also ordered two sets of Boat fenders. 
 

The box arrived at the house sealed well, but there were no drain backs in the box.  I called for customer service, and called again; not only that, but the Customer Service moron acted like I was trying to scam them on a refund for a $6 item.  I’m willing to bet the order picker packer was picking his nose his nose.  
 

The girl I spoke with asked me to check the box again ?!  👎

The Front Depth Finder is an old Eagle Accura 240 with Speed and Temp.  
 

The Fish Finder I chose for the Dash is a Hummingbird Helix 7 with the Generation 3 specs, GPS, and Nav.  
 

I bought this unit for the Best price $530 Labor Day Sale 10% off at www.HodgesMarine.com.  
 

I enjoyed my Shopping experience there,...  I also purchased 2 Cannon Downriggers around the 4th of July, On Sale, with the Cannon Mail in Rebate deal.

What do you guys think of the Manual model Cannon Uni Troll 10 STX ?  
 

The Arm extension is Sweet,...  I also picked up a couple of Cannon Sport Troll Downriggers off of CraigsList for $125 (with a pair of Downrigger rods/Okuma reels).  
 

I purchased 2 New Depth Counters from www.Fish307.com for the Sport Trolls.  
 

I’m curious to know more about Downrigger mounting positions.  What is the optimal position to run 4 downriggers ? 
 

I have been collecting parts to make a DIY Planner Board Mast.  I bought 2 Cannon reels with handles (parts for the Mini Troll).  I bought those parts on a sale from Fish307 for $30.  The reel parts for the planner board mast are probably the most difficult part to fabricate.  

 

I purchased clutch repair parts for my Walker Lake Masters from Fish307 as well.  I was very happy with their customer service.  The downrigger parts guy knows his stuff; he knew exactly what I needed.
