    Default New to me boat

    I just got a boat last month and we finally took it out to the pudd last weekend. Here is a video of our trip. Watch the video and give me some ideas on what to add or do to the boat.


    Thank you for watching

    Safety amigos !!!

    Rule #1 jackets all times ...not anyone's mommy/daddy but way too many accidents
    Happen more than u think. Every lake and even 2funerals in 20 years of boating with my
    Boat group wasn't fun..

    Cheap gear: I use supersoaker cannon from Costco $10 as bilge, and old brake rotors as anchors!
    Tons of rope from harbor freight. Batt powered boat lights from Walmart

    Be willing to part with anything not tied down if u fliP over. I tie down motors/batt.

    Hey it's bug season! 10 hoops per boat and go get them !

    Hit me anytime. We 626/818. Divers/Yaks and mini-boats my group.

    We had life jackets in the boat. As for rotors there a dime a dozen at my work. But the boat came with an anchor. I was thinking of taking out the taller seats and make the beaches into storage.

    Nice little fishing boat! I'm excited for you guys because I've been there with a couple boats in the past. What size is that outboard? Here's a website that specialized in aluminum boat stuff. Lots of pics to give you guys ideas..

    I had another site book marked but I can't seem to find it. If I find it I'll PM you with it.
