Lowe 1648 under the knife

I havent posted any updates in a while. I have the hull cleaned off of the old epoxy, I also did some welding repairs before the biggest part of the project: Adding a tunnel. After exhaustive research I ended up cutting a 3"x36" tunnel, which I am currently welding.

Do you own, or consider owning a jump starter?

I have had a (overpriced) matco jump starter for over 4 years. It has never let me down, and I dont go on a trip without it. They are still sold under the original manufacturer: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Antigravity-XP ... 3482539692

Lowe 1648 under the knife

After a few years I had gotten more into kayak fishing and stopped using the boat as much, and all together after a trip to the Texas coast ended with...

I am going to leave a boa...

tips on running jet in bays/flats

We got back home Tuesday night. Overall I was extremely impressed with the jet and would recommend it to anyone. We only got grass in the grates once but as soon as I killed the engine it fell out.
