I have gone back and read several posts that you may have to part ways with your beloved Whaler. You have my greatest sympathy and I hope you can keep your boat. If you find the urge to go fishing next summer, you can always come over my way and I will have a fishing chair for you on one of our boats. I am retiring from the dive retail business and this will leave me a lot more time to go fishing. Just keep in mind that you are welcome to come over anytime.
P.S. We will not be fishing from DIVE1.

Thanks Jim!!!!!!! I really apprecitae it! I have been beating my head off of the wall for days agonizing having to sell my Currituck. WE(family) need the money to pay off bills, but on the other hand, I know the day after I sell it, I will be on the hunt for a Nausett, Eastport, early Montauk(with the Fisher Hull). I may sell my 1992 Dodge Dakota instead and buy a car that is fuel eficient-goodbuy 318 Magnum V8-Ouch!! At the minimum I am selling the 1975 85h.p. Johnson and Controls from it to put that money into redoing the Wood Interior, and then save up to buy a good used 50h.p. 2-cylinder. I will let you know, would you still let me fish with you if I don`t sell the Whaler?? I would split any expences like Room and Board, Fuel, Brewsk`is, etc. Please let me know, we have a summer home in Conneaut,Ohio. I think about 2-one half hours from Port Clinton, Ohio? Very Gratefully-Jack.

You are welcome whenever you feel the need to go fishing. I am giving you fair warning that our trips only last about 3 hours. 45 minutes out, anchor, 30 perch per person in about an hour, pull anchor, 45 minutes home-clean boat on the way. We usually goof off, cruise, go swimming or diving the rest of the day. I just can't believe how much play time I will have next summer without the scuba shop.

I am only closing one business. My real job is normally 65 plus hours a week. You don't have to tell me about kids, my teenage twins are killing me now trying to get their antique snowmobiles ready for our Christmas vacation to Michigan.

Jack...Hey, I always have my small Whaler and you're welcome anytime. As you know from our fishing this past year...even if the fish aren't biting, the beer and cigars still taste as sweet. By the way Jack, I just put the boat in storage this past Saturday...she looks sad and lonely out there in the back...

take care for now...

Hey guys, I relly appreciate it!! I think I have changed my mind and thinking about selling the engine and saving for a smaller one, or the other possibility of trading my Currituck for an older Montauk, Eastport, Outrage, etc. Also, I may be willing to sell my interior and put that money towards making my Currituck a Montauk, which very well may happen. The only hard thing to find is the Center Console. The bow rail is still available from CML, the reverse seat can be bought New or Used, gauges and steering wheels are everywhere. What do you all think?? Anyone interested in my Currituck interior or engine?? Hey Sam and Jim, I can`t wish to fish with you gentlemen, Sam did we have great time this summer or what!! That Beer and Cigars were the best!! Life is hectic and short all in one, and doing some Fishing, Brewski`s, aND Cigars with good friends is were it`s at!! Regards-Jack.

Jim: I am a native from pc. Please send your name so we can chat. My e-mail By the way, don't lay it on too thick as I was the best perch and walleye fishman on the lake out of pc till I went south to fl. We used to fish the Camp Perry wrecks when the base was still open and firing live ammo. Been there, and know my way around the Lake from Cleveland to Canada to the Chickens to Clinton reef, and around Rattlesnake for the small mouths, and Kelleys for the big smallmouths. I'm still the best up there and may bring my 22 Outrage up there with my little brother (he's second, the Maverick) next year. I would bet a Whaler is the greatest thing ever for Lake Erie.. return with zest, thx

Jim: I forgot to tell you we fished with the infamous Cruise-Along (when I was a tyke), a 22' Trojan with twin 318 Chrysler ib's, and a 1939 Lyman with a 125 hp Gray Phantom straight six (very fast and wet), among other boats. Does this info age me? respond, fireball

Glenn, my brother an I are redoing as 1961 Lyman `19 Outboard Model, kind of rare, with twins it is really rare, ours has a single(sold the 90h.p. from it) but no engine yet. There was only one rot spot, the stem and it has been replace and ready to paint. We drove it for a year(before restoring) and it is so awsome(engine was way to much torque for this design of boat), but man is all the wood a pain, but hey there are tradoffs, it is a beutiful machine. I fish Conneaut,OH. a ton and do well on Smallmouth, Perch, and Steelhead. The Walleyes haven`t come in close to shore for about 10 years because off those damn Zebra Mussels, they suck, so do those worm steeling Gobies, I wish the Russions would take both back with them. Regards-Jack.

I forgot to mention Portage Entry Marine used to be a great old line Whaler dealer(I imagine they still are), they had tons of used Classics a few years ago when I was there. But they were way over priced. Regards-Jack.
