marissa eco 18 finished

Recommended Posts

18Finally finished my marriage eco 18 .. rides like a dream and kicked the ass off of the 4 foot white caps ( I'm used to running rough water 6 to 8 foot. Don't try it until your trained when running small boats.. one wrong move and your in trouble) but this girl cut right trough.. wow.. took a long time but thanks.

Just a follow up, the boat sure turned heads! Had to wipe off a lot of drool from guys at the dock. This was especially true when a guy watched me trailer the boat with one finger.   I tried puck board on the trailer guides instead of carpet and it works as good as Teflon.   I have to keep the boat cabled while backing in or I will be doing so without a boat on board. It's not cheap as you need to buy the thicker stuff to allow for burying the screw heads but worth every penny. So thanks graham for making me the envy of the lake.

      I am thinking about building a Marissa and wanted to see if anyone around Kent Island Maryland/ Eastern shore is building one or another similar model.  If possible I would like to assist or at least come see the project. 443-454-5966.
