    Just wondering...How many boats have you owned (and what where they) and whats your current boat?

    To fish or not to fish,
    What a stupid question!
    Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day, teach a man to fish, and he will sit on a boat drinking beer for a life time :D

    16 ft Aluminum Valco with 6 hp kicker. Long gone.

    About a dozen different drift boats over the years: They have ranged from the first old water logged, home made one, I got suckered into, on up to several good wood, aluminum and glass boats. Current one is a 16-foot fiberglass Clackacraft with 7.5 hp Merc kicker.

    Have also had a variety of inflatables, used for running the Deschutes, Clackamas and coastal rivers in Oregon, as well as coastal streams in Washington State.

    20 foot Alumaweld Jet Sled, with 200 hp Merc & pump. It has an 8 hp Merc kicker.
    Currently use it a lot for some great fun on white water rivers.

    41 foot West Coast Troller, built in Nanaimo by Joseph McClellen. Took her out of the fishing fleet, refurbed her and use her for salt-water stuff, as well as a live aboard during the summer and on vacations..

    I guess I'll get back to you when I finish building it in a month or so.
    15.5 ft hull and a 50 on the back is all I can tell you right now.
    Used to be a Hourston, but the only remnent of that is the basic hull. Gee I really hope it "FLOATS" (Fishes Like Over Achieving Tyee Slayers). LOL!!!
  17. Kelly I'd gladly sell it to you.....

    I use a 12 foot Springbock for the lakes and occasional crabbing run and use my 96 Malibu 182 with 130 HP four stroke 2003 Honda and a 2005 8hp Honda four stroke kicker for the salt and freshwater sports with the family. I am very impressed with the malibu so far as it gets me to Swiftsure no problem, most days, and is also a good looker for when we hit Shawnigan or elk for some tubing with the wife and kids. It goes by the name Bobb'n Mona.

    Oh, and yes she does catch fish.
