Tested the boat guides on Saturday and they worked awesome didn't even need to use my winch. I think I'll make a little video of it next time I go out and post it. The led lights I added work great when it's dark out for guiding purposes. I may add a piece of flat aluminum for support on the bottom ...

I don't have any pics of the bracing but I ran 2"x4"s width wise threw the boat. I used card board for templates for the 2x4's. I also put water proofing on all the 2x4's before installing. I will try and make a drawing later today to show further details.

Looking forward to testing the Navionics app I got for my iPhone today....looking to trade garmin Nuvi 1450 with case and both wall and car charger included. Unit accepts lake master chips. I'm looking for a good lower end fish finder preferably with color. Pm me if you have something.

navionics app

Here a screen shot as it appears on my phone. There's tons of options and it works even without cell coverage. Between this my graph and my gps I have my bases covered.

navionics app

I downloaded the navionics iPhone app yesterday and it is awesome I would highly recommend it. The only thing you need is a cell phone charger onboard to maintain your battery. Two thumbs up.
