    I know I already have another thread started on the boat here http://www.catfish1.com/forums/showthread.php?t=68933

    I wanted to post this up to get a better view of before and after pix instead of looking through the whole other thread:big_smile:

    Fishinfwl (Randy) and his daughter were nice enough to come over this weekend and we got a ton of stuff done on the ol' tub (Thanks again for coming over, the family and I had a ball!!). Below are how she looked when she came in the garage in November and how she looks as of this afternoon. Still needs the wiring, the motor and rod rack put on, and some other minor stuff, but it's come quite a ways:wink:

    Branden you do excellent work. Looking good. Are you going to sell it or use it?

    Thanks for consolidating the pics! The before and after shots really show how far she has come!

    Mickey, I'm keepin' it:big_smile: It's like about any other material thing I own, I'd probably sell it for the right price but I "remodelled" it because it was due for an update, not to sell:wink: It's the right size for me, still in good shape, and now it's set up the way I want it. Hopefully I can hand it off to the kids one of these days:smile2:

    Nice job, when you build them to suit yourself, it's hard to part with them. Later Andy

    Nah, I'm sure by then me and the heathens will have all the new wore off and I won't be too worried about it:smile2: I do notice myself cringing a bit every time I drop a tool in there - I really gotta get over that:embarassed:

    Looks great there Branden, Won't be long now and you can take it out and drop the first 10oz weight on the floor. What model is your boat.
