    I finally got my new boat today! Nothing fancy but it is NEW. I got an Alumacraft MV1448 jon boat. I'll be getting a new 9.9 to put on hopefully this week....but I still have my old '56 Evinrude Big Twin to put on it when I'm feeling suicidal -- it will be a fun ride down Mississinewa Reservoir! I hope I don't hit one of those tree tops at 30mph!:crazy:

    Thanks Tim but I'm going to order the new one this week...maybe today. Plus, if I get too impatient I can put the '56 on it. It's rated for a 25hp so I think I would be OK. I just emailed you. I saw that the new 15hp is only $428 more than the new 9.9hp....

    Well, I ordered my new motor today & it should be here the middle of next week. I was planning on getting a 9.9 but I heard my wife say...and I quote "You should just get what you want..." That's all I needed to hear!!!:smile2: So, I ordered a 15hp. Man I can't wait to get that thing on the water!!! Whose meeting me at Mississinewa!?!

    Ya, I have had that happen to me many times! I think people do it just to piss me off... Wave to me as they go by, while I am bank fishing and they are making a wake! I just want to reel in and cast a huge egg sicker right in their face!!!
