Congratulations.  You are now about to find out you had more time when you were working...   :facepalm:

I can absolutely vouch for the accuracy of the above statement...   I can't explain it, but it's an undeniable fact!  :shrug9:

The 15' SH for being rather small in size compared to say a 21-22', can handle quite a bit of rough weather or conditions.  I've seen them out at Sequim and Neah Bay in some rougher conditions.  The issue is that they're such a light boat that they'll get bounced around quite a bit and the ride isn't going to be very smooth.  I usually always ask myself this question before I go out fishing or crabbing... "if I can even get out there (to the fishing grounds) will I even be able to fish?"  If the answer is no because of the rough conditions, I'll usually pass and go the next day or wait a couple hours.  If I'm already out there and it starts to get choppy, it's a little different but If I can still manage to fish, I'll usually put up with the rough conditions.  If the downrigger ball is almost up on the surface because it's so windy and the current is ripping?  I'll slowly head back in.  I always try to test drive or purchase a boat on a rougher day to see A).  How comfortable the ride is in rough conditions and B).  What the boat is made of and what it can handle.  I'm only 32 years old but these boats seem to be able to handle more than I'd want to see on most days.

You could have them made with zippers so you can use them when you want to. I would recommend during the winter when you are not using them to hang the windows up in a warm house instead of outside in the cold. Are you going with Strata glass or similar window? or the normal 3 or 4mm clear vinyl?

Tips & Tricks / Moldy Head liner

Removing the East coast dirt / mold and replacing with a new headliner. This is one of the easier updates that you can do to your boat.

Yes these are not electric or hydraulic. But Lenco makes a conversion kit to electric for them so good news is I can upgrade at some point. Also price of the kit and my tabs are about the same as going with full electric Lenco's from get go...

+1 for the Centrics. They came with our boat and I love ‘em.

I got a call from Tempress today. Impressive customer service. The Tempress Trojan Shock model is discontinued. They purchased theirs from Attwood and referred me to them for a source of a shock absorbing seat. So unless Attwood gets back in the suspension seat game the Attwood Centric SAS and the Centric II SAS may be a thing of the past.
