Well I went and did it. I just could not pass up the deal on the Lowe 2070 I was asking about. Now I need any tips and suggestions you guys have to offer on rigging it out for cats (some striper). I built my 17 ft tracker a few years back and ended up changing a lot of things and wishing I had did this and not that. I would like to use others experiences and knowledge to try and avoid as much of that as possible. The boat is a 2005 Lowe 2070 Roughneck center console. It came with the following, 2005 Johnson 2-stroke ocean pro (never seen salt water), MinnKota 12 volt 55 lb trolling motor (I have a 65# 24v I may trade it out), small Humminbird color fish finder, large bench seat at console, two pedestal seats, a manual adjust aluminum jack plate, and one set of rod storage racks. The previous owner said he had put the boat on the water three times. The boat looks better than some I have seen on the dealer lots. The prop does have one small place in it that he said he did the first day on the water.:sad2: I don't even know if it is stainless, if it is it is painted black. Here are some pics of it, my tracker is in the background of some of the pics. I am pretty much starting from scratch on this boat. I want a lot of rod holders (that is a given), but don't know what kind. I would like to make use of the t rack on the inside gunnel. At least if it is possible I would like to use the drift master style holders. If possible to come up with a trick way of using the t-track that would be even better. I will be fishing lakes most of the time but I plain on trips to the James and some other large rivers. When lake fishing I spread rods out on both sides of my tracker, usually 10 - 12 rods if I am on the boat alone. I probably won't fish more rods I would just like the option of moving them around, thats why I want to use the track for mountin (if possible). I know I will need some type of "back of the boat" rod holders system for river fishing. I would rather this be removable (as easy as possible) for when I am lake fishing. I need to also look into options for a second live well. Suggestions to something removable or somewhere to have another built in live well made for the boat? The boat is the gold/tan painted option, not the dark green. I would like to add some type of better no slip floor coating. Suggestions / pictures would be a big help since I have never seen or done it for myself. Sorry for the long post, here are some pics of the "new 2 me" boat. Thanks any and all help and suggestions.
