If you look up their Facebook page there’s a bit of info and more pics.
Motors look good pat. I was surprised at first to see Honda’s on there but makes sense. Should be killer.
You can stay but your Evinrude has to go wait in the car.
West Point- area 10. Seattle.
Bad ass. Ditch the wrap for bare aluminum and it would be very badass.
Finally we’re getting somewhere. I love it when a thread gets to the arguing about trucks stage.
So you signed up on bd just to motherfuck some dude mentioned in a 1-1/2 year old post?
In all seriousness though. What are you actually going for? There’s a few guys on here that do killer work.
This, but in tin?
Did you click the stay logged in box? If not every time you go back it will make you log back in.
The fucks a blue halibut?
More trolling talk..,,
This thing never would have hit the market if I’d had a little more dough or a little less baby.
[ATTACH] I have scotty orcas mounted on the booms on extensions. Moves rod inboard a bit and you don’t have to slide the rod out, just grab it and...
I hope that’s nobody’s crew.
Because there’s bananas in the cart.
Stopped in once to check it out. I think I left with 5 as well.
I thought about doing the same after the way they swarmed on me trimming up loins last time. I got the spray though. More hands on.
I’m curious about the getting a double while fishing solo part. 2 pole in the sound?
I think the rest of the guys on the boat would first.
I imagine they’d tell me to get fucked at the bait dock if I said give me 3 scoops but do it 60 times with a bucket?
Let’s not get math involved in this now.
whatever stops the boat.
I just fucking chop at it with a hatchet till blood comes out.
You just walk up to the big side door where people are dropping off their hatchet wound albacore and ask for ice. $20 fills a big cooler.
They do make bigger hewes...
Probably going to be an expensive winter for you.
Wish I could swing it now but I’m about a year out.
120’ off the caves.. green Hootchie.
Sounds like a cool run.
Was there a pink jig in its mouth?
Is that house and added bow flare aluminum?
There’s a few in here.
You spelled balls wrong...
Maybe a set of oars then?
Can I get just a couple stickers avet?
It better be cold!
Also I typed that while driving, no seatbelt. Maybe a tail light out....
I just pay attention to my surroundings and assume everyone’s going to do something stupid
Just troll as close as you can when someone’s on fish.
I’m going to delete the same shit on my duramax due to an emission code with the cat pee tank.
Excellent. They’ll be in surf fishing range soon enough.
I may have to stop in since I’ll actually be in town for one of these.
Are you saying there’s a Cali guy in Westport?
Sorry, all I could see in your photo was slap shot lurking in the background.
No kings in area 11. Move along.
Looks great as usual. I love how well the sdpw matches the colors in the rod.
What do you want to see Eva with slick butt?[ATTACH]
You get a pic of the bite it took out of the boat?
I pack my own gear for Alaska trips. Built rod tube out of pvc, glued a cap on one end and threaded cap on the other. Drilled a hole at an angle...
Better start packing around a scoop of chovies and 1,000lbs of ice just in case.
It’s not butter...
I just wanna see more sexy fish and big ladies. maybe I got it backwards.
Cool, thanks. Looking at maybe doing something similar soon. Checking out all the brackets I can.
Not a bad looking little glasply. Did it come with the motor bracket or know who built it?
If I remember right, one of them had a whole shit pile of gas cans on board to make the run too.
Coming along nice. Looks like you do good work. Trying to decide if I have room in my life for a project boat to do something similar.
Nice. how are those electric reels trolling? Thought about trying it.
I thought tuna was expensive enough. Now we all gotta start buying 50 wides and shit?
Oh shit it’s getting real....deep that is. Pics.
What the fucks with the pussy shit censorship? I’m seeing words like cockpit and glass partially censored elsewhere. I’m just trying to see if...
Wow. I thought about looking at it up here when it was cheaper.
So she handed him a boner rod, but then it was clearly bent.
Yep. That’s more like it.
I’d look at going smaller before going older/ shittier for what I’m guessing is a first boat. Cheaper to buy and cheaper/ easier to maintain....
That’s the “I heard they bite on the turn” trolling pattern.
If you need it to fit in your garage, depending how tall your door is a lot of the glass walk arounds, trophy, striper etc.. may be too tall. Also...
This time of year, whoever has an open spot. Now that the fish showed up they’ll all be fairly booked.

Yet here in Washington it is.
That’s awesome. I miss sturgeon, it’s been a while.
Definitely more than 10. We haven’t had the pleasure of topping the half tote off with tuna yet as it just got added into the mix last season. The...
I started researching cheap braid when it became time to spool a pile of big reels. I’m a #200 power pro guy on my drs but if the knockoff brand...
So I’m a little bored in the hospital right now. Waiting for the kid to crawl out.
Oh shit! Bayliner down.
I have 6 or 7 of them and it happens to about 1 each year. I’ve always had good luck dripping a little oil in between the handle and spinning it....
6” home built pvc rod tube. Reels and gear goes in checked luggage so I don’t have problems with hooks or line. I’ve heard sometimes line has to...
I like the tunas.
It’s a dark blue attempt at an America wrap. But pretty much came out black. You could probably sneak in a little USA on the Canadian with it.
I need to get one of these too. Had a close call from a tripped breaker that went unnoticed a day or 2.
[ATTACH]The black one is what happens to black and white cord if you put spar on it straight. It’s faded out a bit and looks kinda cool now, but...
Yeah. Week days. Lame.
No that’s just Everett...people do dumb shit there. It can be a great show. Especially at low tide. I think that’s where they test out the...
Bummer with the wife on board. Saw an adult doe fighting against the current hard trying to get towards vashon a couple years back. Deer are real...
Cool looking boat. Keep the pics coming, I like these kind of threads.
Holy shit that’s a lot of room. She’s coming along nicely.
Cal would be the guy
Finally a thread dedicated to arguing about trucks.
I can cast much farther with my TranX 400 than any of my avets.
I believe most do. I put such items in checked luggage to avoid difficulties.
Bucket. Porta potties are a nightmare.
ive Finally learned to buy it early, when trailer tabs expire on both boats. Last year I forgot to put the sticker on my boat till someone pointed...
Yep, great deal on a tiderunner...not such a great deal for a major project tiderunner. Cool little boats though.
So can we get extra punch cards then to go with our extra days?
Out of curiosity, what was the asking price?
I was going to ask who’s going exploring after Hali next week. I may bring a few clones and irons just in case. But I’m not too optimistic just yet.
You’re not supposed to talk about lapusshhh. Now people will know there’s lingcod somewhere in the ocean.
those half totes in the half hulls are killer.
Co management obligations and test fishing huh? Sounds like it’s going to be great.
I’m scared to look....
Unless you have cannons then braid. 200lb power pro.
Love my tran x for irons. I run 400 size for albacore in wa.
guns, rum and an extended trip? Where do we sign up?
Got it trying to post response in classifieds. Don’t you fuckers realize that some of us like to get drunk and buy shit on here?
Ok, fuck it. Been over ten years since I lost my last pair of these. Pm sent.
Still haven’t seen it. Running work iPhone that has always had the gps shit turned off. Guess I’m paranoid of being tracked. In my garage drinking...

Nice looking boats. Guess I need to start shopping for an osprey now.
Right in the middle of the fucking living room. Oh it’s tempting.
I’ve mounted some things with these. Looks same or at least similar. Can’t tell. Also Miller marine makes some cool looking stuff to mount tables...
I really like my Daiwa 750’s.
I feel left out now. Haven’t been asked. My current location is in my garage though.
This place is on my list of fisheries to visit. Not this year though. Childbirth instead or I’d be on it. Hope you fill some seats and find some...
I’m looking for a bigger boat but that may be a bit excessive. Do like 50 guys want to go halves on it?
[ATTACH] Missed one dammit. I was cautious and released the one I wasn’t 100% certain on. I didn’t look at the pics really before I started....
If the fins have black, send it back. They do look really similar. I too was impressed only to see a few floaters out there as opposed to years past.
Most recent thread I recall on these if it helps....
Thanks for putting this out there and keep the pics coming. I love these build threads. These boats are on my short list as well. Wife picked out...
That’s awesome. And funny. Nice save.
we didn’t get checked at lapush either halibut day, but we did on Friday.
Can’t wait to see people’s responses to 10 yr old threads.
That’s awesome. Looks like some nice water too.
I’d look at going in August. Just need to figure out if you want to do the big boat/ overnight trip or fast day boat in and out. Hard to go wrong...
Yeah nothing new. They go right before us every year now. Wish there was a little more time between long line and sport season.
[ATTACH] The go to colors for my personal rods however.
[ATTACH] Rookie here, haven’t shown any off yet but here’s a couple colors I’ve really liked. Black and green trout rod was for a 2 year olds...
I could probably set you up with something Calcutta if you’re not in a big hurry.
I use a couple of the generic bass pro “ocean master” on my daiwa electric reels. Work fine for what I need and cheap. Come in a few sizes too.
We ate some like 10+ years ago, no worse as table fare than true cod or sea bass, that has been forgotten in the bottom of the freezer, wedged...
Fake news. Good shot though.
I run an 8’, 6 dB on the 19’ alumaweld but mounted it on the side of the windshield so it lays down flat out of the way when I’m in the river....
Probably best just to leave it here and wait for people to start fighting about trucks or something.
We burn through these annually if not more on my dads dreaded Volvo diesel. Had 1 blow up on the raw water cooler and it was a nightmare to chase...
Man that thing just looks awesome.
Looks like Ali eating a churro.
[ATTACH] Just cranked a few out last weekend too.
I got a 15 you could use but I’m in Buckley work in Bellevue though.
Mac’s x2. I can’t see any of them making much difference steering though.

Boat battery. Scotty Downrigger plugs.
I don’t know if my riggers have enough balls for those balls but I like that lead melting apparatus.
I run the Scotty plugs on mine and keep a spare set of power cords with the alligator clips still on them. 1 fucker out of 6 or so boats I fish on...
I got a couple 750’s. Work great for what we do in that 500’ to 800’ range. Mine are spooled with 65lb and I’m pretty happy with the whole setup....
Saw a ski boat a few years back called “the shitter”
If it were me, with a shop like that I would skip the elevator shelf all together and get a forklift and some pallets. But that’s me and opinions...
When does my reel arrive?
I’ll take 2nd cooler off your hands if it’s still available.
Been playing around with it. Landed a few tuna on a jig rod with it this year, and quite a few coho with it. Easier to cast than a blood knot.
The power on my drift boat can be shitty and unreliable, with steering issues. Much like the force 120’s of my childhood.
Xtratuf for me. Buddy bought the grundens and they seemed really slippery.
That was the first name to pop into my head.
I hope it’s a tuna.
Cod? I’ve caught a couple this year on the surface.
What size? I might know a guy that uses reels with the handle on the wrong side.
I always run a delta diver out the back for 3rd rod. Lot of the time it’s the most productive rod for coho. Last weekend the diver rod was on fire...
Yeah that’s it. Can’t miss it. Right in the middle of everything.
Sent you a pm. Turned into lots of words. I’d be Leary of all the bank traffic and getting flossed unless in the tide water.
Didn’t realize they were mackerel at first. Threw swimbaits, pink/white butterfly jigs and live chovies. They hit everything.
Those mackerel are going to taste great after soaking in a pot for a couple hours.
I carry spares bearings, tools, fully loaded spare hub now. Problem I keep having is salty lug nuts breaking or stripping. Been on the side of the...

Ram mounts with the suction. Or I just toss it on the dash. I tote my iPad w/navionics US&canada on several different boats I fish out of. App...
what a joke. Considering a lot of guys either stayed in fri, or fished inside. And I didn’t hear much happening inside.
Also I heard stainless toe rail pipe jigs work good too. Not just copper.
Gimme the old bait table. I’ll put it in the alumaweld. I meant to ask about it when I saw the new one.
Also ling cod cheeks. I’m guilty of wasting those as well. Most of my carks go in garden or crab pot.
I read that in a magazine or something years ago. Never tried it either. It’s feeling like I throw half the meat away.
Makes sense. Never tried it. Got a friend who raves about doing the same with salmon carks. That’s probably more common though.
I didn’t hear exactly how or where they got into trouble and my post may seem misleading. I mean to say the boat that spotted them had arrived in...
I had a friend on the rescue boat as well. Or one of them? Thought he said a 2nd boat pulled in one survivor. I don’t know. Not really the part of...
Happened about 5:00 pm.
Great times for sure. This event will most likely be an annual one for us.
Excellent. My dad was trying to pick one up a few weeks back. They were out. I need another one too.
Oh. The clampy thing. Yeah. My bad. That reel hasn't even been spooled with line yet. It will have the clamp and live on a different rod. And...
I had to go back and see what looked like a urinal. Didn't notice this boat has 3 sinks the 1st time through. Thats a lot of hand washing. At...
Hands..... if your into that whole pipejig and catching fish thing. But my tanacom 750 fits nice in Scotty striker.
Also, I heard sportco is sold out of tanacoms at the moment. Apparently everyone wanted one with their 20% off coupon.

It's winter...so here's a WA steelhead from last week. [ATTACH]
wow. I like it.

Coho like punk rock, Kings like metalica, butts are more about some Johnny cash. Steelhead the stereo is off. My boat can't tuna, so whatever...
I'm still running that model on my sled.
I really miss that coho fishery.
I had switch problems on my t-8 before it got stolen.
Fine looking vessel. Can't say I've seen one of those before.
Looks like same bullshit dates as last years. Is this years bullshit quota the same as last years too? 11 day season with quota to last a few days.
The ones I use most tend to stay in garage for convenience. But I live in WA, and I don't think my garage has ever hit 80*
Top shot. Braid color doesn't matter much with enough flouro between it and the fish.

Great, now I'm shopping for old Bertrams online. Like I have time for this kind of project in my life.
I got the 3/8 and 1/2 round one for twitching jigs. You're welcome to use it. I'm in Buckley, work in Seattle. Shoot me a pm if ya want.
$40 bucket? Finally a yeti product I can afford
Will there be stickers available again?
Looks better already.
No fish in area 11. They all have moved into 13.
Has anybody eaten one yet? Saw a few hit the dock at sekiu this weekend. One clos to 15 lbs.
Great reels. I have 5 of the 500 size. Not great to cast though. Mine are mostly used for trolling.
I've caught salmon very close to the jetty and know people who catch salmon casting from other jetties with big spinners, so probably doable. I...
