Thanks!

I used Brillo pads to clean the aluminum... I cleaned a small area at a time, and made sure to rinse the aluminum off to get the tiny metal fibers from the Brillo pads off... Then used a stainless steel pad to go back over it.

It took a lot of elbow grease!... It looks better than the pictures show!

We have a little place in the northern Daniel Boone forest (Northern Morgan County) and usually go to Cave Run Lake (the backwaters/ N Fork of the Licking). I have heard good things about Paintsville, Yatesville and Grayson Lakes but haven't tried them though they are all close. Maybe meet for a little fishing some time in warmer weather if you are up for it.
Thanks!

I do most of my fishing & all of my camping at Cave Run and camp at Twin Knobs.... I also fish Paintsville lake pretty hard.. I used to fish Yatesville lake a lot when they first built it, but I don't now... The coal mines in the area has a lot of fishing tournaments... I would get to the ramp early in the morning and find out they had a tournament all night... That lake is fished to death!

Paintsville lake is deep!... But, it has some big Bass & has some big Trout in it... We have a Sun Tracker Bass buggy Pontoon and really like it, especially on Cave Run since the Lake is so big, but I can't wait to get this Lund on the lake!

I fished Grayson lake in my younger days and its a nice lake with big Bass too.

Yeah, if you want, we can't meet at any lake you want to!.. Just let me know!

Send me a PM & add me as friend if you want!

Thanks!.. I'll check out your thread!

Sorry to everyone for not updating this thread!

Everything has been on hold and I hadn't been on here for a while... My daughter went into 8 weeks premature labor and was in the hospital for 2 nights, thank God that the hospital stopped it!!!... Her due date is Feb' 1st, and they said she is fine now!... Also my dad had congestive heart failure... I've been real busy with both of them, and to make things worse, my laptop hard-drive failed and I lost everything I had.

Just as soon as I turn a grandpa, :mrgreen: I'll get back to work on the Lund!!! ... Fishing season is coming soon and I can't wait!

Looking good so far! Any updates? Was wondering how I could check to see if my wood inside the transom is OK. I'm new at this and any help would be greatly appreciated!
