    Hi everyone
    I just got a boat, I will want to set it up better, but it will definately work until winter. I have been limited to bank fishing up till now, so it will be super for me. Just wanted to share this with my fellow cat men.

    Joe congrats on the Lund. That is a fine boat. Take it out and get some catfish slime on it. Break it in right. Remember think SAFETY first. Enjoy.:lol: :wink:

    Sorry I haven't posted any repairs/upgrades in so long. I haven't done any major changes yet, but quite a few upgrades.
    Last summer one of the first things that I added was a fishfinder on the front of the boat, an Eagle Cuda 168. Then I had to replace the winch on the trailer and then there were problems with the trailer wireing/lighting, so I rewired the whole thing and went with all LED lights. I also had to make some repairs to the seats.

    This summer so far I have replaced both front and rear fishfinders, The old one that was on the rear was an Interphase 10/20, it was ancient like the old monochrome monitors, and the Temperature was incorrect. Now I have two Humminbirds, a 161C and a 565.
    I redid the bunks and guide ons, and replaced both seats. That is probably all I will do for now, unless something fails before winter. Hopefully this coming winter I will be able to add some built in livewells.
