Hey everyone

Just realized I hadn't made my proper introduction. Ian's the name, living in "wonderful" Jax, FL, hopefully not for long. My boat isn't much, but it floats. It's a 12' Fiberglass skiff I bought for a song and a dance, and have been working on it on and off for about 5 months. Re-fiberglassed the entire hull, new wiring for trolling motor, paint, livewell, gas tank, just got outboard for it. Next agenda items are probably gonna be rod holders, battery box, cooler bracket, seats and maybe some outdoor carpet for the sensitive feet.

Howdy -- I mostly lurk here and learn, but almost any boat is fun when it cooperates... I never had a hard dinghy until this year and I think I've spent more fun hours puttering around on it than the boat I got it for...

I've sailed my 8' El Toro more than my 36' Hans Christian to be sure. Taking the little boat out is simple / no effort. Taking the big boat out, especially if you live on it and have a 9-5 schedule, is a pain in the ass.

Aloha Skinny,
Welcome aboard!! Powerboats/Fishing boats can be fun. Hope you're enjoying the forum and can get that 15hp purring like a kitten. Johnsons are great old outboards.
Kind Regards,
JohnL
