    For those of yall that don't know Clay is my 11 year old son and best fishing partner. He got hisself a boat today, a 14 foot v bottom john. It hasn't been home for more than an hour and he is in the process of cleaning it out to get ready to go fishing in. A friend of mine gave it to him, so the money he has been saving to buy one now needs to go for a motor for it. Dear old dad has to do some welding on the trailer, but all in all everything is in good shape. I am attaching pics of Clay's new "pride and joy". Some one let me know if they have a good 5hp motor or so for it they would part with reasonably.

    I bet he is very proud right now. He'll remember this day for a long time. That's a good looking first boat. He'll sure have something to talk about at school...:wink:

    Nice looking catboat the young man has there. I'll bet he is smiling from ear to ear. Keep the pictures coming as progress comes along.
    Hopefully his first cat out of it is his new PB.:big_smile_2:
