    I got a question on these two drain holes: There are two drain holes that come into each rear compartment. The largest one drains from the front wells through a pipe that is very easy to see from both sides. I think all Livingston’s had this one. There is another small drain hole lower in each...

    There’s one one each side. They can be set to detect a one inch rise in water in the bilge or to do a sample draw every 2 minutes which would catch water sooner, or you can just turn them on manually. I have two switches up front, one for auto detect and one to turn on the pumps.

    Livingston Runabout Fishing Mods

    I’m probably going to add a wind screen with a grab bar around it which would also serve as a leaning post when I’m on the bow. My motor starts easily with with one pull so I’m not worried about draining the battery. It’s also extremely unlikely that I would run out I’d juice I’m getting 10...

    When it’s glassy I can stand there and fish. Plenty strong. But there’s nothing to hang onto so when it’s a little pitchy I stand by the wheel and cast.

    Yes, the bait tank is screwed to a seaboard ‘saddle’, which is screwed to the floor. I changed the ways that’s setup a little this week and it seems super solid. Also added bilge pumps. Will grab a few new pics tomorrow. I think I’m ready for local tuna...

    SOLD Windshield and Bimini from Livingston Runabout

    I don't have pictures of my stuff, but here is what it looks like on another boat. Forgot to attach this on the original post. Only difference is my bimini canvas has a tear.
  18. Steinlager

    Livingston Runabout Fishing Mods

    Seems like plenty of power. I don’t think it was getting all the way to the top of the rpm range though, so I’ll probably look into a new prop with less pitch. I like that I turn the key and it starts with no drama.

    SOLD Windshield and Bimini from Livingston Runabout

    I removed the windshield from my Livingston and raised the seat, so the Bimini is too low. The picture is not my boat, just a pic off the internet showing what it looks like. The canvas of the bimini has a tear about a foot long at the front. Bimini snaps onto windshield. Price is FREE. I'm...

    Test ride went really well today. Went slow the first couple hours but went wide open for short periods on the way back from LJ. Top speed was 25 mph and the tiny tach said I was only at 2900 rpm. I think the tach's not working right. I did add negative transom wedges for a little tuck. Seem to...

    Installing the engine wasn't all that hard, but it took me a while to figure out how to connect the throttle and shift cables. None of the instructions say how to do it... The answer is that you remove the left lower panel from the motor with about 9 screws and then you'll see how to attach the...

    It's been a while since the last update. Here's the latest. I installed new steering in the console, finished the floors, put some seaboard in the bow and on the tunnel, installed the Zuke 30 and remote, put the battery under the console, mounted the livewell over the tunnel, routed all the...

    I thought I wanted a big battery so that I could hang out on anchor with the bait tank running, but now that I'm adding up all the weight I'm not so sure. This beast weighs 50 pounds! Opinions?

    How far forward is too far forward for the helm? Most of the discussion I've seen talks about the helm being too far back. Has anybody put if far forward on a Livingston 14 and wished it was further back? Currently the wheel is about 15" back from the bulkhead at the front. One configuration I'm...

    I got the seaboard from ridout plastics dba eplastics in kearny Mesa.

That made to foam level out nicely and expand horizontally instead of up. Made a template...

    My plan for tomorrow is to finish adding closed cell foam to the floor and (hopefully) figure out a way to carve it flat. Then I'll make a template for the floor covering and cut that out of 1/4" seaboard. Then glue it down. Stay tuned....

    The bow deck and console are bulletproof fiberglass construction. I'm superstoked on the possibilities with those. The windshield and bench seat are goners though. The general plan is to move the console to the center and build a box over the tunnel so that the console is about 8" further back...
