    I got some pictures of the boat being made. This was the boat on Tuesday and they say the boat will be done on Monday. It is one fast process when they get going. I should have the boat on the water no later than Feb. 1. That is if the ice lets me. I know i will be going nuts, i might just drive down south. lol

    cj, how long ago did you order the boat. I assume that it's a seaark from the name of the pics? what color did you opt for? i love those 240's and am heading to a boat show this weekend to speak with the local company that deals them here to see what i can get done on one myself.

    Nice boat CJ. If they leave the side stringers like that you can make some cheap rod holders by putting 1 1/2 " PVC vertically attached with automotive hose clamps.I have 14 of them on my lowe along with 10 driftmasters.Bet you can't wait to get out.I'll try to put a couple of pics in when I get home from work.

    The order was placed mid to late Dec. I was going to go with camo but a buddy of mine told me that camo boats are way to hot. I got on a web site and saw his boat. It is a toffey colar with white inside. I ended up getting a used motor which helped keep the price down. I spent about 10,000 less than i would have by putting a new motor on it.

    Its a 50 gallon tank. Which will come in handy. I will be able to fill up when I choose to not everytime I go out.

    See you have been talking to Doc. I really like the colors that he has on his 240.

    I really like the white inside I know it will get dirty real quick but I'll take that over the heat draw other colors would bring you. I saw one the other day in a cool blue color and white. Now that was a sweet combo. Can't wait to see the boat.

    I bet it will seem like the ice lasts forever this year! Nice boat I think it will be sharp when its done. And it will look real nice with a big flathead on the bottom of it!:wink:

    what kind of trolling motor are you going to put on the it. a 70 lb auto piolet would complete the package.
