Fritz, I am getting excited to see how your boat handles and your draft in saltwater with the extensions on the stern. :unsure: Heck, I guess I'm just getting excited for summer to come and get you to Alaska. :)

Fritzman,

I like your hull extension. Can you tell us the difference it has made on how your boat handles? Did you do it yourself? I am interested on how it was done.
Thanks,
Greg

Thanks for the nice words Fritz
The big ones are usually in my sights, fun to catch but we eat the smaller ones much better tasting.
20' here today just right for snowmobiling we go right out of my house, no trailers..

Feel free to read the Forum Help tab at the top of all forums... Basically, you can upload by looking at the bottom of the post you are writing and look for "Attachments" then click on "Add File" which will take you to your PC and you select the photo you want to publish. Then select "Insert" and you will see a "IMG" line show up in your message...A new "Add File" will show up under the first one. You can add up to 6 per post...

You can also link to other photos in the internet by looking at the top of the post and the picture frame with the chain (link) over the bottom. Hit that and add the photo link...

Icemaker, there is a free photo resizer you can use... Just take the photo you have a drop it on the logo you download on your PC. You can drop the photo from the folder it currently is in even though Photoresizer is on your desktop. I would suggest you add "600" to the file name so it looks like:"Photoresizer600" without the ""... That will automatically change all the photos to 600 x whatever and makes for easier posting of a photo. The one below is 600 in size... (you could go to 800 or 1000 too)...

alaska spirit,i wish you a speedy recovery-but be careful my dad fell some time after his. the next repair wasn't so good. how has the d4 worked out for you? i would guess it to be a perfect match for your boat, weight, power, speed and economy. my kad 42 could stand a little more power (never enough) and loose some weight, thats why I'm interested old glues hull extensions, but still cruses nicely at 24-28 mph using about 10-11 us gal. per hr. when i post my pictures i'll include one of the engine room. flemming

fritz I have been in contact with Scan Marine and they are very helpful. They also have a web site that shows some of the install for the 2859. They are in Seattle and the phone is 888-606-6655. Wish I could remember the name of the guy I talked with as he was very helpful.
Ice the D4 was a very good decision and has worked very good. My cruse 24/28 I will see around 9 to 10. Gph. I had the repowered done there in Ketchikan at Light House Marine. One of the owners name was Mike and he helped me out a bunch. And yes guys I'm going to take it easy on the new hips as once is enough. They done them the new way which is they go in through the front of the leg hip area. They say less pain and quicker recovery, so far it is going very good. Talking with you guys has really got me fired up to get down to the Ketchikan area again. The plan was for this spring, but with the surgerys I think it best to wait until the spring of 2015. Hope we can all get together some where then. Dan
