Default New boat (w/pics)

Here she is. Picked it up last night after a good cruise on the Tennessee River.

Not the prettiest boat, certainly not a brand new Lund... But it'll be everything we need it to be. Needs some small work... impellor, re-wire of the foot-controlled trolling motor, all crap I can do in a day here at the house.

Haven't named it yet. Waiting for a couple trips out on the boat first. It's the boy's birthday today, so he woke up to quite a surprise this morning.

















For a boat made in the 70s and a motor from 1985, it's in pretty darn good shape and really scoots on the water when you open it up.

It's my first non-inflatable water vessel, so I've got alot to learn. Eager for the fun and even the challenges ahead of us this Spring and Summer.

Sweet! Let's see some serious fish porn now. You no longer have a legitimate excuse. Well, I guess there is still the issue of the good water holes being too far away...
