This was my grandfathers boat, and several of you on here adopted the restoration. As a lot as it is aspect of our family members background, with our other boat, we do not use it, and do not do it justice by just trying to keep it in the garage. Considering the fact that we restored it in 2008, we have only place 5-ten several hours on the motor.
Listed here are the specifics:
1955 Orlando Clipper
Really low hour Mercury 2 stroke with electrical start out AND trim and tilt
Excellent White trolling motor on disconnect mount
Ahead casting platform is from Egret Boats and is carbon Kevlar.
Second, alternate forward platform arrives with the boat, and is at ease for sitting
LED nav lights
12v bubbler baitwell
16’ moonlighter pushpole
RCarbon stick it pole
2 financial institution on board charger
Egret helm cushion
Personalized B&M trailer
The deck was developed tailor made by Line-X in Sarasota. The complete boat has Line-x, which cleans incredibly easy in the inside, and can make the hull incredibly peaceful from slap.
This boat is incredibly shallow as you can see from the immediately after pic of the boat.
It poles super shallow, or you can disconnect the trolling motor, sit on the bow, and “walk” the boat. I have performed that at the rear of George’s Bar, and it is amazing how close you can get to redfish that way.
I would appreciate to see this boat utilised by someone every 7 days. It is not only wonderful for the flats, but is also a huge little lake boat.
