My new boat

Talk about anything that floats your boat (no pun intended). This is general talk about anything not related to boating/fishing.

Not much chance of it ending soon. As was previously mentioned, Bust Open Another Thousand is until the day you sell your boat.

I'm seriously considering putting on a 797c SI humminbird on it! LOL! Imagine, a jet with side imaging! I can go where you can't and see what you can't!
In 4 inches of water??
Can't you just lean over the side, and see bottom structure??? :D :D :D

Nope! It's not the same! He needs to get that unit! It's almost mandatory.

Ha! I think the majority is ruling on the side imaging! :lol:

So far I have only the front depth finder. I bought the 747c humminbird so I can interlink it with the one from the drivers seat for gps waypoints. I mainly am doing that for big rivers and what not. I am directionally challenged, but not as bad as my girlfriend! Ooops, did I say that out loud? I am going to go with the side imaging for when I get into deep river holes or when the river breaks into a gravel pit. I fish a lot of lakes too and I like to get up in the skinny water of the tributary that feeds it. I like going where no one else can go. Especially when you live in indiana and the lakes there are soooooooooooo pressured!

Anyway, if anyone in Indy wants a ride in her, shoot me a pm. My trollin motor batteries are supposed to be delivered today! It's like christmas! LOL!

You will love that side imaging. I can't wait until I can afford my own. It is the most amazing sonar I have ever seen and used.

I went back and looked at the pics and just noticed the bimini top #-o . I guess I was too busy looking at the structure of the hull and cool diamond-deck on the boat, and completely missed the neat accessories, lol.

New boat has been just awsome this year. I've got a 3rd and a 4th place finish in tournies so far this year. Got one on the Indy white white river tomorrow morning and I'm hoping to drop in more mojo into the boat with a 1st place finish, but who knows.
It was funny because the first time I had it out on the river, Iwas idling up to the questionalble spots. I did make the mistake of trying to idle through a section that I should have been on plane. I sucked some crap up in the jet intake and had no power! Ran into a tree when the current was pushing me back and snapped a rod! ARG! Since then, I've learned to ride out the quesionable spots. The skinniest water I have gone through so far that I actually got out and somewhat measured was 5 inches. Man does your butthole ever pucker when you see that shallow water! LOL!
It's really nice to have a boat that I can take almost anywhere except for like Erie and stuff like that, but I can really hit places that hardly have any pressure. Best trip out was just for fun smallie fishin. Each one of us had 20+ smallmouth around 2-3 lbs each. 2 of which were 4+ lbs.

If anyone gets near Indy gimme a shout!
