    Congratulations on the new boat. That boat looks like it's been well taken care of. I know several teams that fish that style of boat in tournaments and they make excellent catfish rigs.

    Thanks all. I cant wait to get it in the water Saturday. I am impressed with its shape verses its age.

    Steve,

    Congratulations on the boat. It does not have to be fancy looking to get you on the fish and to catch fish. I also plan to get out on the water this weekend with my first boat.

    Steve thanks for sharing the pics of your boat. Looks well taking care of. That tri-hull should ride good in rough water. I think that proud little boy setting in the boat is ready to go. Take him on the maiden voyage he will never forget it.:lol: :big_smile:

    Thanks. It actually has the console on the right side, it is just a real skinny boat. Both my boys are excited about getting to go out on the water. I have never had a boat before, even growing up we couldnt even afford a jon boat so I have bank fished my entire life so this is a very big deal for me.

    Like you I bank fished most of my life. Take those boys out and let them drive. They will be the envy of their buddies come Monday morning. You might also think about taking some of their friends whose fathers don't fish. I know if I didn't have a great uncle who took me fishing a great part of my life would be missing. Spread your good luck around.

    Looks good to me. If your kids are anything like mine, they'll love every minute of it. Congrats.
