    he sold his Harley to get it. he aint rode in years so he just goes to work & comes home. only other thing he does is go to grand kids ball games. with this new boat i hope he will get out more and enjoy himself more.

    lifetime guarentee on the hull, transom & deck too. i beat 2 salesman up with questions and arguments, 1 in J.C., the other at Cabelas. Cabelas gave a lower price plus $300 in store credit back.

    its the Lowe Stinger 175 which if im not mistaken its 17.5 ft. long. he had a 50 horse put on cuz he says, " if there is fish where we're headed then they'll still be there when we get there no matter how long it takes." :smile2: plus we wont be flyin on the Kaw anyway.

    Always the optimist, aren't we Keith? Perhaps JJ can bail fast enough
    to keep up...
