Cant believe I'm only seeing this thread now.

I've been completely absorbed reading from start to finish.  Its like one of those movies where you dont want to see the "The End" sign.  Shannon I'm in complete awe of your patience and skill.  What you've accomplished here really is the stuff of dreams.

Wishing you many many happy hours on her.

 

Regards

Rods

After opening the thread I was captivated, but didnt want to go straight to the end to leave a comment. Bru you are a legend, this is definitely something I will be taking up once my fiancee and I are settled and we have our own place, at least she will know I will be at home most evenings and weekends and not at the pub especially with the amount of time spent building something truly this remarkable. I hope that the motor saving is getting close now to you having your own couple hundred horsies on the back. Oh and one more thing, you need a pic with you and a LUNKER at some stage. Cant wait to see the progress from here on now.:fishn:wfish

was reading your article on your 16'phantom,very well done i might add. i just recently purchased a 1983 16' phantom myself. of course it needs some TLC,but my question for you is did you have to make new compartment doors or just fix the ones in it? because thats my main issue with this boat, is that its missing a few of the doors,and being that they are recessed it would be hard to make plywood replacements that wouldnt stick up. and i really want to keep the deck nice and smooth. is there anywhere to buy replacement lids,or am i stuck having to make my own from scratch? any info or ideas would be greatly appreciated
Ok so now i feel like an idiot! i was brought to this page while trying to find replacement compartment lids for my phantom,right in the middle of your build! Now that ive gone back and read your whole build,i see how you did the lids,and man did you do the lids! haha dont know if i really wanna go that far,might just have to make me a mold and fiberglass me some new ones. i had no idea what i came in on but WOW! is all i can say. that is truly some amazing work,and i hope it brings you years of enjoyment,you truly deserve it after all that!

Hey Guys, thanks for the cool comments.:wfish


Bigdodd, My boat is a completely new custom hand built boat (no retrofit of an old hull). No relation to what you have. There are several boats in the world called Phantoms - Ranger for instance makes a Phantom 168 flats boat.

No real shortcut around hatch lids if you want them flush with the deck, you gotta do the work. Or just install after market hatches, they have a slight lip of about 1/2" but they take 10 minutes to install.

Thanks Bennie.

My boat is now officially complete and has been used for the past 4 weekends in a row, it's awesome and catches lots of fish already::S







This is what I caught on it's first trip with the permanent engine


I also use it in the harbour and it has already caught it's fair share of fish.

I want to sleep in it I love it so much
