    Went out today looked things over and got the 9.9hp motor running pretty good took spin around the dock area and runs good. Need to put new anchor light on and will do some work to it over the winter wiring wise and spruce it up some but shoot for what i paid i can't complain.

    We will shoot to get you up her in a week or so let me get everything ironed out on her and will fish.

    Are you still selling your other boat?
    I was wondering what you were going to get to fish your tournaments in next year.

    Nice fishing boat, and it already has the stup for a bowmount trolling motor.

    Peple... :D.... the tent idea with a heater would work well up until ice over though.... seriously! !%

    Me and the oldest boy set out this morning before i had to go to work to do some wrenching on the new toy took about an hour or less to get the motor purring and running as she has been docked and sitting since may. Heres the boy giving her her first run around knox.
