Darn redbug, you have me beat. :( If we had a lot of ponds around here, we would have a lot of jons to keep there, but we don't, so we just sell all the ones we buy, and make a profit. :D) We have thought about keeping an extra, in case something popped up, but then realized it is unlikely something would pop up, where we could keep one there. BTW, the 14er I have is going up for sale soon. We need $ to work on the Alumacraft, and Lund. Now, I am on the lookout for a few more outboards and trolling motors.

This boat will get up on plane in twelve inches of water, will run on plane in six, but takes eight to float it at idle. You must be careful in shallow water or you will have to get out and push or pole it out.

From my reading they seem to be the new "hotness".

Whats the limit at that lake? I might have to come down for a weekend next year and have a rally of some sort. Or I could even be a back seater.

I guess I should have been alittle more clear, sorry my friend. The lake I fish at has a 9.9 Max limit. I think if I had a bigger engine Id give the Del. river a shot.

I finally snapped a current picture of the Gamefisher, as I was parking it in the garage for winter. So no, it is not a tin boat, but it is a budget boat. 1975 Sears Gamefisher 12 with a 1962 Johnson 10 hp. I bought the motor th is past spring, and it took me most of the summer to get it running right, so I only ended up using the motor once this year. I fish mostly electric only lakes anyway. The front seat is on a small deck that is positioned as low in the boat as possible. I have been using a transom-mount troller that I either put on the back in place of the Johnson, or clamp to the front. I recently picked up an old bow-mount troller that I am going to install before next spring.
