19SC w/ Saddles and custom top (no longer for sale)
« on: August 07, 2019, 12:29:33 PM »
I am preparing to put my 19SC on the open market.  You can see pictures of it and the top in my gallery at
http://www.arimaowners.com/index.php?action=gallery;su=user;cat=356;u=5

What you cannot see is that I recently installed saddle tanks (no longer available from Arima).  That's an extra 15 to 20 gallons, handy if you are after tuna.  I am running a RayMarine a78 MFD, three scotty power outlets, a 2005 +/- T-8 kicker (elect start/tilt), 2003 Yamaha 4S 115 (I suspect around 500 hours but have not been near a computer for a year to check), dual battery system, Baystar steering, Racor fuel/water separator,  and a bunch of other stuff.  I just installed a wireless kicker steering/throttle system.  I have a spare set of injectors and have maintained the boat and motor annually.  Boat lives in the shop unless I am using it fishing.  It has never been moored.

The trailer is a ’97 EZ loader roller.  I just upgraded the axle to 5200# with electric brakes.

The boat is a ’97 19SC.  From my understanding Arima has only made around 200 19SC’s.  They are hard to find, especially with the custom top and saddle tanks.  It took me 18 months to find this one…

When it goes on the open market I will be asking around $35 K.  Of course I will have to detail it, fix a wiper motor and a few other things before it goes on the open market – maybe $750 to get it all done.

The sale will not include rod holders, anchor/anchor rope, down riggers & weights, personal gear like PFD’s, etc.

My passion of fishing for tuna and halibut (serious Ocean) using my boat is fading.  Perhaps my age is catching up with my rampant senility.  I am sure you may recognize that as my serious ocean passion fades, my wife’s outlook toward my fishing brightens…   I am looking toward a boat that will fish the lower Columbia, crab and lake fish… Likely a tin can.

If you are interested in the boat now, as is, for $33K cash, please let me know.

I am located in Oregon City

Streamfixer's 19' Sea Chaser is in a class by itself with the custom top he has which provide more coverage than a skip tower and is built with a stronger structure than the skip towers. Take a look below.

I believe he has also moved the batteries up front for better weight distribution and I believe he does have trim tabs. It's been a few years since I've been on this Arima but my timing must suck because I would have bought this one in a heartbeat over the only I just purchased for $32K.

Nope, batteries still in the back.  Moved them on my old 17SC..  The extra length really distributed the rear weight well.  Dash changed a bit too.  The Raymarine screen built into the dash.  Used black 1/4" starboard to reconstruct the dash.  Now has Screen, RPM & Motor tilt gauges.  Room for one more 2" gauge if someone wishes to install something else.

Great looking boat.  I can't believe they have only made around 200 seachasers.

   Nice photo is right.  She's a beauty Fixer.  Amazing how that color feature changes the optics.  Kinda makes it look longer...…. like a 21.  Good luck with the sale.  BTW, sounds you're simply downsizing, right?  What about going to a Sea Hunter or Sprinter?  Would be easier to handle, yet still satisfy that occasional "itch" for the bigger water on those good days?.......No?

Russ sorry to hear you’re letting the 19 go.  It is a beautiful boat and I was having my kicker bracket made at the same time Brook was building your top so I got to watch that process and know how well it was made.  I’ve fished alongside at Neah several times know that’s a great rig.

I am a big guy and can stand anywhere on the top frame and shake the boat on trailer.  I really like the overhead grip when crabbing.  Makes tight maneuvering a breeze.

The guy who designed and made that top also made my kicker bracket.  The bracket is very well thought out- it is slightly angled to the side so that with the angle of the sponson the motor is perfectly aligned with the direction of the boat instead of being 90 degrees off the sponson.  This is the bracket that Arima copied...
I know his work on that top was just as thoughtful.

And he listened to me in the process.  Definitely one of a kind and hell for stout.  Something to hang onto when going through chop and heavier seas.

Streamfixer's SC19 on the lake (enroute to the dock- note fenders). I've been out on her many times, good memories! 
May the holes in your net be no larger than the fish in it.

I am looking toward a boat that will fish the lower Columbia, crab and lake fish… Likely a tin can.

I’m all ears always willing to learn something new. That said, why a tin can streamfixer? The clean up? The maintenance? The maneuverability? The tow weight? I fish lower, upper Columbia, Roosevelt, willapa bay, pugetsound and so many other east side lakes. I’m just curious because I’m looking to upgrade to a 19 chaser to do all these things plus a lot more with a bigger boat like lapush.

The conditions you have noted (except perhaps LaPush and some days on the sound) are all on the 'really easy' end of the 19SC capability spectrum.  As noted in my initial posting, I am losing my passion to own the boat capable of 'serious Ocean' fishing.  I would enjoy such adventures going with someone else.  Perhaps rampant senility is beginning to show I guess...   :stooges:

Nothing wrong with my 19SC, just WAY more boat than necessary for my present needs.  A tiller steer tin can, around 18 feet, looks like it would better fit those needs.  Time for someone else to enjoy the 'serious Ocean' capabilities of this 19SC.  65 gallons of fuel certainly gives a 19SC the range to do just about anything you might wish on the ocean...

The top is very strong. It helped me to brace myself as I was catching Streamfixer when he stumbled on his rods.
