    Yeah- a jack plate would help a lot for top end. I don't have one on the bass boat either. But, I can trim it up enough til it starts chine walking and that gets her up OK. You could probably pick up a power trim/tilt in a bone yard somewhere.

    Hopefully, you won't have to do this......

    Man, wanted to get a boat this year, but with being out of work as of next friday, I don't think it will happen this year.
    Here is one that is identcal except I had Evenrude instead of Johnson. 14.6' Sunray, Fast great hull, the old Sunrays before they lost the factory and molds to fire were great.
    Had a 14' Springbock Alum with a 20 Johnson that I got rid of 5 years ago

    Now we just have these

    Heh...TWW..that pic brings back memories. I did that to an Evinrude 70...blew a bearing, and an arm went out the block. Still have the crank in my basement...as a reminder to have a tach on every boat from now on! That was back in high school....used to have a Cane Cutter, which Checkmate made I believe. A flats boat from Louisiana.

    Chris that Sunray is VERY cool looking, thanks for posting that pic. Late 60's? I love those classic performance boats in the 15-16' range, such as Glaspar G-3's, Glastrons, etc. I had not heard of or seen a Sunray, but that's quite cool looking.

    David, that's a nice cruiser. You might try a trip down the Intercoastal Waterway in next few years after daughter is no longer shark bait.
    That is very true. My father in law had paid around 40K for the boat and it is worth roughly that today. A new one like it would be a six figure item. Twin screw boats have great maneuverability.

    I am thinking about a long cruise..... Hmmmm... SG meet out on the high seas [pirate voice] Arrrrrrrrr...[/pirate voice]

    hey hey, I have a buddy that can put a sat dish ob your boat, comoplete with gyro balancing and internet!

    If they had a decent 1 Mb wireless connection, I'd never get any real work done and would give up this landlubber life and move to the Carribean...

    Nice, David! Where are you cruising in that pic? Looks like an inland lake (boathouses).

    That was the boat on Lake Hopatcong NJ (By Jesse23). It is the largest lake in NJ, but too small for a cruiser.

    TonyT,

    Which rear view are we talking about.... .

    My father in law was ridiculously neat, he kept the boat immaculate.
