    I went out last night for a quick fish and only caught a big drum, i hope that drum didnt bring bad luck to the boat. lol It will run about 40 with 1 person in it. I need to get me a nice BOC decal for the side of it.

    the only thing that boat needs is to stay wet and smell like fish.

    Nice boat there, If thats your first boat way to go man. I like that you got rod holders already on it plus you will love having a trolling motor on it. GOOD LUCK!
