Custom Boat Rigging

Question

brunziej

I am looking for someone to do some custom boat rigging. I have a 1980 16' Sylvan Sea Monster. I want to add a livewell and some hidden storage compartments. I would like to redesign the stern area to accomaodate the livewell and storage compartments and add a larger gas tank. Does anyone know of someone who does this type of work? I live in the metro area, but have no problem traveling to get this done. Please help!

There is a guy up by Ottertail who does this type of work, He does a good job, have seen some of his finished products. I believe it is called "The Boat Works". I do not have his number, but it should be listed in the New York Mills area.

Might want to check with Stan Berry at Custom Rigging in White Bear Lake. I had some work done by them and was really impressed. Phone # 651-426-9752.

Howdy brunziej...

Drop me an email and we'll talk. I'm located in the southwest metro. (Chaska area) I've done a few mods like what you're talking about and am willing to take a peek at your project if you'd like. Most of my work has been on Lunds. Flat floor conversions, casting decks w/ hatches, rod lockers, battery storage boxes, custom built-in tanks....

      Eyeguy and I made it out one last time yesterday. Access points are getting pretty bad in our area. Was finding roughly 2ft of  very chunky ice in the places we drilled holes. With the warm weather and bright sunahine we had, I'm guessing we lost a few inches through the day Fishing wasn't exactly fast and furious, we did get our fish... but really had to work for the quality.  The area we ended up finding our fish was a shallow 6-10ft dark bottom flat, close to where they will move come ice out.   It soon became apparent the fish we were targeting were almost swiming with their back right against the bottom of the ice, infact my two best crappies hit while my bait was only inches below my hole.  Baits we found better success with were the Northland slugbug and The Impulse Mayflies in bright colors. Jig size didn't seem to matter much due to the depth we were fishing. As I am typing this, my thoughts are already turning toward warmer days spent chasing smallies on the river. The boat and yak are soon to be ready, rods will be strung and so on. It was one heck of a long winter.... fished with some real good people from this site I had more good days than bad, got some monster fish locally... for these things I'm truly blesaed.... like I said,It's been a long winter....I'm glad it's over Pic is of my last big ice crappie for the season

      I will certainly keep you informed about the progress of the hatchery. I expect to see the nets and traps go in within the next two to three days. The run should be very strong as the fish are already moving into Pike Bay strongly. Cliff

      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..

      I got the 4 smaller ones the other day. They are a little over 2" long and paid only $6.64 total to my door.  The quality seem pretty good, we shall see once I put them to some use!
