That’s great Anita and you could make that happen. I was really hoping to drag RL III up to the Georgian Bay and intercept them for a few hours. Get Denny a little time at a SeaCraft helm again. It...

Verified. Was out this morning on RL III with my son. A friend met us in his Aluma-something. We stayed on plane at 12-14 mph in a tight chop while they got pushed all over the place trying to keep...

I thought it looked like a Potter/Hermco too. This is Bushwacker's photo when Don (Hermco) installed his bracket. His Seafari is in my yard now. It is a single on a 20' but the platform, tub and...

Can you include me on the distribution Terry? Let me know if you no longer have my email or cell #. RL III has the base cushions in very good condition but not the backs. I have one shop locally that...

Agreed on all accounts. I would add the additional weather protection too. The water temp up here is still hovering around 45.

I bet it’s yours if you want it. It’s been on and off Craigslist since I started looking for my 1st Seafari 4 years ago. Seafari 20’s look to be a tough sell, especially in Florida.

Porpoising if I use no trim tab at all. I don’t have a fine touch with trim so I’m sure I start with too much until on plane. Then I trim engine and tabs up for best speed. Don’t get me wrong,...

On Bushwacker's old Seafari the bracket is 30" from transom to the back of the mounting plate measured along the swim platform. The manual jack plate is a touch less than 4". So the motor is moved...

Don't listen to Don! Our SeaCraft's look just right on the Great Lakes. Who in their right mind wants to wear flip-flops and shorts year-round.

222 s/n’s between yours and mine. Per the literature section, 398 Seafari’s were built in total through 1972. I’d bet it’s a 68-69.

What s/n do you have? My 1972 Seafari is #2268. There has been speculation in earlier threads that Seafari s/n’s may have started around 2000 or 2100 based on annual build volume and a few early...

That’s a high stress area for any bracket. This is the Hermco on Bushwacker’s Seafari. I notice these by maybe S. Carolina pulling her from Florida to New York. Didn’t get any worse so I...

Arg John, I’m sorry to here that. I recall you had a rough August weather-wise last year too. I see that a few small crafts went down on Ontario this month.

I’m pretty sure Bushwacker has notes on moving the axle/adjusting tongue weight after adding the bracket and E-Tech. Ever the engineer, is there any doubt Denny had done the math? When I get a...
