Construction of the seidelman 299
I have owned 4 other boats before and now i have just purchased my seidelman 299. I buy distressed boats at rock bottom price and refurbish them. I do all my own work. Bimini, rebuild engine, fiberglass work, 2 part polyurithanes, upholstery, plumbing, electrical. EVERYTHING! 3 years ago the old owner pirated some parts off of the deck of this boat and sold it to the marina. It leaked in there all that time. Sometime after there was 6 inches of water in the boat and the marina here drilled a hole in the bottom. 2 months ago I looked at it and decided to buy it. I filled the holes with silicone and came by to open the hatch to let out moisture whenever I had time. This is an incredibly well built boat. My wood loss was minimal. ( Teak veneer flooring and 2 wood panels on the back. Also the cushions) I had the Yanmar diesel running in about 2 hours. and clean up to quite a bit longer of course. This is now a really nice boat that I have decided to keep. As far as designs go, you can see the that this man really knew what he was doing. This was the second bad review of this boat I have seen by people that know absolutely nothing about this boat. The first one talked about the deep draft. It is actually 4'2. Anyway, you should have gotten this boat. I really think the whole family would have loved it.
