Fisherman by David McFarren, Portland, OR

December 18, 2018 - I finally finished the boat completely in October of 2018! I lengthened the boat to 14'-6". The windshield is from a 1986 Beachcraft with the center section taken out. I raised the windshield up above the deck as it would not fit otherwise. The bow rails, stern rails and windshield were purchased from a boat recycling yard. The 20 HP Merc motor is used (a 2010 with only 20 hours on it) and the 6 HP Tohatsu is a new 2018. It was a hard job since it was completely built in our 1927 very narrow single car garage. Thanks for all your help!

<p>Subject: Photos...Fisherman \"Luisito\" Date: Mon, 5 Oct 1998 23:49:31 -0000 From: Luis Velasco </p><p> Barry: </p><p> As promised, this are photos of \"Luisito\" which didn\'t survive George. We plan on building another one with some \"improvements\". This boat was built in 1990-1. Power used was an 89\' Mercury 25hp, which I still have and plan to use on the next \"Luisito\". We added navigation lights, marine radio, electric bilge pump and even a horn. It was pretty well setup. The local fisherman couldn\'t believe I actually built it and that it was wood. </p><p> This was my first \"true boat\" building project and my father\'s 8th. We really enjoyed building this boat! </p><p> Side note: this boat made a trip of over 100 miles in a weekend. We (my friend Carlos who was the \"navigator\", jajaja, and I) sailed from (Isleta Marina) Fajardo, PR to St. Thomas USVI and back. Making stops at Culebra island (right between PR and St. Thomas). Needless to say we got a LOT of weird looks and comments when we docked at customs in St. Thomas. We almost got in trouble with the Coast Guard because of the size of the boat (too small for them) but that\'s another story. :-) </p><p> Hope to update you in the future about \"Luisito II\" which, of course, haven\'t started yet. </p><p> Luis Velasco,</p><p> Rio Piedras, PR</p>
