    well i was feeling quite motivated to get off on the right foot, so as soon as i posted I ran out to get pictures and information... it took me about 3 steps outside to relize that it was dark lol :roll_eyes:, but what I am really looking for as far as information goes is; after I get it ,and make sure it floats I planned on probibly having to redo the floor in it, and mabye find some seats, after that probibly spend a couple days tinkering with the engine, and getting it tuned. but after that, what are the most important things on a cattin rig, I was thinkin just a few rod holders, lights, a depthfinder, and mabye a bait tank?

    what would you put on ur boat (limited budget)

    Thanks

    PFD's is where I would start. If it has been sitting a while, a new fuel line and sqeeze ball. Anchors are handy to have with some good rope.

    A squeeze ball is the ball attached to the fuel line that you squeeze to prime the engine.
