The guy in Vermont added those to get better "getting upon plane faster" when he was using the bigger motors. He said they helped…." maybe a little", but not worth it.

To ALL,

How I wish that I could find a similar hull here in south TX, as that LOOKS like PERFECTION in a bay flyfishing & Gulf-coast tarpon boat.

Just joined the site - really excited to see all of this background on the Maritime Marine boats. I purchased a 1964 "Nova Scotia" about 8 years ago and recently completed converting it to a center console. The boat is 50 years old and still going strong. Very cool to see the posts from the guys who cut and welded the boat!

Can anyone fill in details on the relationship between Maritime Marine and Mon Ark? They are obviously the same boats (I thought mine was a Mon Ark until I did some research and found this site...

I bought a 1968 Walk Thru Nova Scotia but when I got it home I found that the previous owner had fooled me. It had over 23 corrosion holes in the hull that had been covered with bondo and painted. The original foam had been saturated with water and gas for who knows how many years creating huge spots of corrosion. I took it to someone to weld and they estimated 1200.00 min. Since I only paid 500.00 for the hull that was not an option so I am in the process of restoring it now using Aluminum plate, sealed rivets with thickened GFlex epoxy. I will show you but dont know how to post pics.

WELCOME ABOARD. = NICE boat too. Wishing I could find something similar about 18 feet for flyfishing the Gulf.

Satx,

I am considering selling my boat (the polished one it the beginning of this thread). Are you still looking for one of these?

Cool to see another one of these finally after many many searches about their history I have a 1969 which is the only one built in 69 and the last one ever built there by an employee for his years of service I’m told recently just got done restoring it wanted to keep it as original as possible but was impossible to find material to match it’s certainly an eye turner paint is the last to be done “ someday “ the name on it is THE LAST ONE very cool

Cool thread so far!
I lived in the Bahamas on Nassau at the time these boats raced. My Dad worked for OMISA which was Outboard Marine International South America. We received all of the factory powered Johnson/Evinrude powered boats when they got there. Back then they were powered by the X-115 and the GT-115 engines. I had the privilege of running one from Nassau back to Grand Bahama each year for shipment. That was the days of ballast tanks instead of power trim!
Think I remember seeing Mona Lou!
