    260 Mackinaw Height

    So the Mack is about 25' 5" long as I recall (as are all 260 hulls). Using a ruler, the picture you provided, and simple math I believe your rig is about 11' to the top of the radar dome as it sits on the trailer. Ship has the right idea. regards Holty

    New 26 shamrock owner!

    Don't think it's an Express as they have the 8'6" beam and the raised bridge deck. The 260 Con-walk had the rear console but had a short windshield. Your windshield looks like that of a Predator. Interior pictures would help. regards Holty

    pretty sure the shroud was fabricated from 1/2" Starboard on my 99'. Would be an easy build. regards Holty

    Shamrocks on a drift..

    Not true. They have a hard chine (a bit of a reverse chine actually). They are stable on a drift.

    26 Commercial Pilothouse Question

    As I recall, I believe the commercial has a step down into the house allowing you to stand up while operating. regards Holty

    Mackinaw Smartrails

    I had them on my Mack. I used one length cut in half and definitely helped. 10" above the waterline was the sweet spot. I also made spray flanges from 1/2" Starboard that attached to the pulpit making it much wider to absorb the spray that would come up right at the bow. Pictures were on this...

    Pedestal Seat Post For 1998 Mackinaw

    A Mackinaw of this year will have a plywood core. So if you really want to have a strong base to secure your pedestal try this. .......Place your base into position, mark the screw holes and the diameter. Now cut out a circle about 3" less than the diameter of your base in the deck. Dig out some...

    1986 20’ conwalk deck hatches needed

    Fabricated hatch covers made with 1/2" Starboard in the seafoam color reinforced with two 3/4 x 2" oak battens works and looks good. You could go with fabricated teak hatch covers also.

    Pedestal Seat Post For 1998 Mackinaw

    I had the swing up or down helm seat that hinged on the sidewall when I owned the Mack. It was nice being able to fold it down when trolling or drift fishing. I think a hard-mounted pedestal seat will be hard to pass by with the engine box so close. I built up the swing seat 4 or 5" higher which...

    Saddest day of the year

    OK, so how old is too old to maintain and operate a boat? I think about this quite often as it seems I have rounded third and am headed toward home. I have been around and messing with boats and fishing for most of my 71 years. I was three years old when I caught my first flounder. Family...

    26 hard top Holding tank

    Yes, many years ago I removed the head enclosure and reworked the dash and V bunk area. Made for a larger V bunk and more comfort for the ladies. There are pictures out there somewhere. It was a nice winter project. regards Holty
