    This is my river boat. I still need to do a little work to it. I would like to make a rod rack across the back,relocate the batteries, add a tack and temp.gauge. I also need a fishfisher on it. It is not the "traditional" fishing boat but it serves the purpose well for the river I fish in.Oh adn it will flat out fly in inches of water!

    When I first got this boat it had an old 305 in it. It was ragged out. Switched to the 350 and redid the interior. It has 4 rod holders down each side. I'm going to build a rod rack to hold 6 rods across the back over the engine. I am also going to add some lights inside and some head lights on it for the night trips.Right now I have around $1500.00 in it.

    from what i read her is RED don't draw bugs and when u shut'em off u can still see what the hecks going on.

    ......thats a problem for me..bright white light spot,head light .etc when i shut them off MAN somebody could slap me and i would never see it coming !!! kinda go blind while my eyes adjust....
