    Ok, I have my boat done for now. It still needs some things but they can wait till spring cause I want to take advantage of the fall catfishing and the winter crappie fishing. There are so many pics. that I picked a bunch and just made an album. So go to my profile scroll down to (My new to me Cat Rig). Check it out and give me some feed back if you like it or not.

    Later,
    Chris

    Chris i don't know what any thing more you could need. If I had a rig like that I would fish day and night. All you need is time and water. NICE!!

    It is a 1988 lowe. Its 17ft x 74 x? (didn't measure). The power plant is a 1994 force 70hp. Minkota 30lb thrust(pos) trolling motor. 2 live wells 1-15gal (front) #2 25gal (under driver and pass. seats. On the column there is a fish mark 320 graph and fish elite 640c (gps).There are 10 rod holders down one side and 6 down the other. Then I have a rack on the back that holds 6 1/2 in rod holders for fishing current or trolling. I have had the boat for about a month and 1/2. Got it done quik so I didn't miss anything through the fall.

    Sorry I haven't been back here in a while. But thanks to everyone who commented and to a look at what I have done so far. There are still many things to add and be done. As they come along I will update everyone. This coming weekend we are having a gathering and it will be tested to its limits.
