Thanks....it's been a fun time fixing it up.  The garage door is a 10' opening, and the top stands about 6'4" from the deck, so it's an easy fit.

I had the Tempress Elite high backs on my Sea Hunter, they were pretty comfortable, what I didn't like was the plastic armrests that felt real cheap.  The Centric SAS seats I installed are more comfortable than the Elites.   http://www.arimaowners.com/index.php?topic=4065.msg45298#msg45298

Welcome Aboard DSledgeR,,
 very nice Boat and enclosure.. :yeahthat:
 On those Tempress seats..
I have a high back helm seat
 and would not recommend it.
 the foam is cheep and smashes down right away..
 I replace my seat foam right away..
 I would recommend the Centric SAS seats
myself...

That happens to me from my IPad.  If I modify the photo in any way using Photoshop, Photogene, or Image Resize Apps., the image comes out right side up.

My ribs are black and blue from Danno's jabs regarding this issue.   :stooges:

Croaker, you sure that you're holding that thing right when you're taking pictures with it???



Remember the physics of how a lens works...  The image is taken upside down!

Please consider posting your location on our member map.  Pick a point that is close by.  Putting on your house not a good idea as our site is not that secure.

Hi everyone, my name is Bogdan, and I joined in February. Just finally picked up the arima that my buddy and I split. Thanks to blindmonkey, Lorne, for posting the link a while back. It's a good starter boat to get us out fishing. We picked it up from a gentleman out of Anacortes, and there weren't any real surprises. Brought it back to the island without any hassles at the border, and gave it a good scrubbing, and replaced the manual bilge pump with an auto one.  It's moored in Sooke, and we have been out fishing twice, with three chinook in the boat. Off course there are a few things that I want to do, including, putting in a second battery and switch, installing linkage between the main and kicker, and replacing the electric fish pro down riggers with Scotty's, which I have one of already. The down riggers work quite well, but Scotty's are easier and faster to fish. See some of you out on the water!

Finally made it out this week for shakedown and some fishing along north shore of Lake Superior out of Duluth. Boat performed as you all have suggested. Very safe and stable. Bloodied the deck with first coho so was glad to have installed the Jabsco washdown pump and hose! Water temps still in the 30's but found some warmer near river mouth and boated a nice lake trout off dipsey. Going in the smoker this afternoon. Cheers.
