Hey everyone, Just purchased myself a mint condition 1991 17' SC, happy to join the club! I am sure the guy who I bought it from is on here, if he see's this thank you again! Can't wait to hit the water. I live in Tillamook and will primarily be fishing out of Garibaldi. If you see a gold 1st gen Tacoma lugging around a really good looking Arima chances are it's me, if you see me come say hey! :D

Hey Tim,


Did you buy the boat in Long Beach?

If yes,   we are neighbors.

Is it me or is the boat crooked on the trailer and not touching the bow stop?
Nice crew shot!

Yes, purchased in LB. Trailer is overkill. Need to make adjustments. That is a strap holding it down since it's shy of hitting the bow stop.

New to the forum and on the hunt for a SR19/21 around Seattle. Coming from a cdory16 that just got to small for the family.  Loved having the hard top and the rugged simplicity, took that boat everywhere. I think these Arimas look like a nice upgrade.

Like that this is an active group!

Korn, many have been in your circumstances including a friend with a 16' C Dory who now is very happy with his SR 19.

Good luck with your search.

Thanks! Yeah, I’m hoping the prices settle back down in the fall/winter and I can pounce on something- hopefully with 4 stroke power.

Greetings, Just purchased a new to me 17' SC. Just had it re-powered to a 4 stroke since the old Johnson 2 stroke was getting tired. Can't wait to get some fish in the boat.

So, I'm a new Arima owner.  In the past I've owned a 19' SeaSport, 21' NorthRiver Ranger, 18' Tiderunner, and just recently bought a 2010 Arima Sea Ranger 19.  I live in the Seattle area (Renton), but do most of my boating out of Tillamook Bay, as our family has beach cabins in Rockaway Beach, OR.  I'm looking forward to a summer of salmon fishing, bottomfishing, and crabbing in the ocean outside of Tillamook Bay.  May also spend some time chasing salmon at Buoy 10.
I'm needing to add a kicker bracket to my SR, and I'm aware of the gentleman and fellow Arima owner that lives in Maple Valley (10 minutes from my home).  I hope to get my kicker set up and my Scotty downriggers and crab pot pullers set up ASAP.
I appreciate this site, and look forward to getting to know my fellow Arima people!!

Welcome Audball.

I just bought my Arima back in March and joined the group a while after that.  These seem to be a great bunch of guys (haven't seen any gals posting yet) and many of them will do anything possible to help you out with your Arima.

But, be careful....They seem to be the greatest at helping others spend their money. :jester:

Oh, and let's get a pic of your boat posted.

WELKome.   
Whats an Oama?  I'm familiar with Ono and Ahi

Found it.  Bait or food?

Yes baby goatfish… excellent bait for papio… and be eaten too! Hawaiian French fries… I picked this name because oama fishing is pretty much the most basic fishing I guess u can do seriously. It takes some skill but it’s just you a little pole 1 pound test…. But we can get nuts on bait, chumming moon Phase etc…. So I’m basic fisherman… go out and slay! Thanks

Hello Everyone

I would like to properly introduce myself to this forum.

I recently purchased 1999 19SR in great shape with 90Hp Honda. I am planning to use it for trolling for salmon, trout and walleye on lake Ontario. I will need this forum deep knowledge to make my boat a fishing machine.

Welcome back, Mike.   You know the drill.  We’re always happy to spend your money here.

That’s one heck of a “walleye” in your avatar pic.  Looking forward to seeing more of those.  :wink:

Howdy,

Finally took the plunge and bought my first boat, a 1989 SC 19' from the heirs of the original owner. It sat in a barn for the last 10 years and only has 259 hours on the clock. Feel like I got pretty lucky as it's in great shape, hoping to get the original Evinrude 120 VRO running as the compression seemed "ok" with 122, 122, 122, 100.

Anyways, I look forward to digging into the forum and hope one day I have something worthwhile to contribute.

I'll be fishing Oregon and the coast, see ya on the water!

Welcome aboard.

As Mooch has indicated in the post above....Watch out.  These guys can empty your wallet faster than a tax collector.  The difference is that you'll probably have something very nice to show for it!   :jester:
