    YEE HAWWW!!! I got my first boat! From fellow BOC member Cattledogz. Its a Ebbtide Dynatrax 150 with one heck of a awesome 1977 Johnson 70 hp motor. She had it listed here in the classifieds section and all I can say is someone missed a deal! But I got a heck of a deal. She was as honest as the day is long and a exceptional honest person to deal with. "Carolina Cats" will be on the water this week! And I cant wait!

    We went and looked at it Saturday. I tod her I would call her by Sunday with a answer one way or the other. We left and went and ate supper and talked about it. We get home saturday night and she called and said, "I have a couple catfishing tapes for you. Even if you dont take the boat. Your welcome to stop by and pick them up". I told her since she was including the tapes,I would just go ahead and take the boat! She wanted to know if I was serious. I told her yes! I want the boat. So now its sitting in my yard and Im as happy as pig at a feeding trough! Its raining here and my butt is soaked from sitting in the boat! YEE HAWWW!!!!

    Thanks Cattledogz!

    People like yourself makes the BOC a swell place to just hang out and have some fun!

    Teddy,
    Thanks for buying the boat. You really did get a good one. Take care of her and she will last you many years or still be going strong when you decide you want yet a bigger boat. :wink:

    Hope you catch a ton of PB catfish in her.
