    I have intently been working on me a cat boat these last 3 weeks. I got tired of trying to go fishing for cats in a bass boat. You get the most awful looks with all those rod holders on it.

    1-- this is what I started with.

    Nice project, looks like you've come a long ways!! Looks great buddy, keep it up.
     

  3. That carpet really brings out the character of the boat. Sure is a big baitkeeper too. Not many undertake the restoration of a boat so way to go on the great job so far.

    That looks great Bubba.

    Send me an address and I'll send you a couple of interior lights if you'd like to install them. It takes a 2" hole and just push them in place. Prewired of course. Would you like a battery switch, just on and off, got two of them also.

    Anything else you might want, that I've got is yours

    When in the devil have you found the time to work on a boat, when you spend so much of your time answering our questions on the motors. Oh, well, if you do run into motor problems, a know a couple of guys you can get to answer any and all questions. LOL. Good boat, quit working so much and go have some fun.

    Beautiful! I do see a problem with it looking so good.The ladies are going to want to use it for a pleasure craft.As soon as you get it finished you better smear a little Stink Bait around here and there.Better yet,build it in.If you don't,you may never get to fish out of it.Real nice.peewee-williams
