Welcome aboard Scaletech. Lots of good info here and as I'm sure you've read (hence the pictures) no pics, didn't happen.

1st pic: Nice boat  :clap: .

2nd pic: Ouch  :bigshock: ! Damage the hub or is it just going to be a bearing job?
Thanks, La-Z-Buoy. I replaced both hubs just because they are not that expensive, and came with the bearing races already installed. There was some damage to the spindle, but I just used emory cloth on it until the new bearings would slide on easily.
But, the pain isn't quite over because I just lost both bearing buddies somewhere on the highway after installing the new hubs. Maybe I over-greased the bearing buddies. They are not the best design IMO, just a friction fit like a cap. They should be threaded onto the hub. I've read that some people have drilled holes in the hub ends and installed set screws to bite into the bearing buddies to hold them in place.

That's odd.  I've never had a bearing buddy do that.  They always fit so tight, I had to drive them in with a hammer.  Maybe you got the wrong size?   :shrug9:

I have lost one on the road.  First trip after installed.  Put on replacement (same size as I had the original packaging of the first) and it is still there after a couple of years.

New cover (which I love), new kicker (which I don't)...it's a fishin machine!  been getting out on the water 2-3 times a week.  Some guys like the walkaround boats, but I gotta say, I love that my boat has an inside and an outside.  I love fishin, but I also like comfort! :)  Sure the deck space is limited on the 16', but 90% of the time it's just me and my dog out there, and it's plenty.  LOVIN' MY ARIMA!

First is a picture of me reeling in a nice chinook on my new 19 chaser.....Second picture was of my uncle holding a nice 22-23lber, I guided him to in my old 17 sea ranger.. He is a die hard fisherman and hadn't caught a salmon in some time. It was caught 17 feet down in 25 feet of water, made a solid 150 yard run, was an  absolutely amazing day on the water.

here is the new addition to our family...some before and after pics.  She needed a lot of help when I got it, but she is running and fishing great.  We are going to name her the "Gideon Brown" after a fishing boat song by our favorite Newfoundland band...Great Big Sea.  I put a few more details of the fix-up in the new member section...OK, apparently my computer is having technical difficulties, I guess you will have to look in the "welcome to the forum" thread for pics of "Gideon Brown"?      http://www.arimaowners.com/index.php?topic=2.750

"GO DAWGS" is in reference to University of Washington's Husky Stadium in the background, & the Washington Flag flying from my jimmy-rigged flagpole coming out of the rocket launcher. Husky Stadium is one of only two NCAA Football stadiums where the fans can "Sailgate".  Most do it in fancy yachts, but I have yet to see them show up with a fresh coho hooked early that morning  :biggrin:

Hello All,

Great to be here...was a lurker for awhile, but have been the recipient of many good ideas and how-tos.  I bought THE FLYING PIG about a year ago from King Salmon Marine.  It's a 1996 Sea Ranger '19, with a 2010 Evinrude E-TEC which had 60 hours on it.

As all boats are, this one was a money sump as well to get her into the shape I wanted...so here's a brief list:

1)  Trailer upgrades, brakes, electric winch, new rollers, and LED lights
2)  The dash was full of old holes from the previous engine, so I bought a thick piece of vinyl and redid the dash to clean it up.
3)  Rewired the whole boat.  The old wiring looked like a rat's nest, and I actually found a wire leading to the aft switch for the washdown water tank clipped together with two alligator clips. Fearing a friggin' fire, I decided to do it all the right way.
4)  Added mounts for downriggers, and my home made crabpot puller.
5)  New LOWRANCE Elite 7 fishfinder
6)  Added a T-Top from Atlantic Towers.  This was a PITA, and while the quality of the product is good, the fitment needed a little "adjusting".  Fortunately, I have a good friend who's smarter than me on such things, and we essentially pulled the structure apart wide enough, and past the yield point of the metal so it would fit width wise.
7)  To keep momma warm, I ended up getting new canvas made to fit the T-Top.  I met a guy at the Seattle boat show last year, and had him look at the boat.  He offers polycarbonate windows as an upgrade, which I elected to buy after years of really disliking isinglass.  While I doubt I'd do it, he says he has customers that run windshield wipers on the stuff.  He was very easy to work with, and made many suggestions.....even picked out the colors of the canvas to match the Evinrude's logo.

I'm sure I missed something, but pics are in my gallery.

Also after looking and learning from this site, am going to add another bildge pump, and I want to upgrade the seats to the tempress elite high back helm seats.  If any of you have any experience with those, I'm all ears.
