    Picked up my Lowe 1652 today. I'll get some pics posted as soon as I get it done. Right now its stock, looks just like the one on the Lowe website. I plan on coating the interior with bedliner and building a drop deck in the bow. I hope to have it done for the Wabash River Mafia Bash on the Wabash. Oh yea, Mafia members, got some extra scuff pads and lots of o.d. green that needs prepped.:cool2:

    Hey Bear I was getting nervous! I knew you was picking up your boat but hadn't heard anything. Knowing your (and my) luck I was afraid something went wrong.:amazed: So I guess it's safe It'll be safe to go to work this week:big_smile_2: . Looking forward to great memories this summer.

    Nice! Congrats on the new purchase. Now all you need are shad scales & cat slime to make it official! Make sure you post some pics when you get her all decked out.

    Well I finally got up enuff greenbacks to put some power on the new boat, and after searchin for a 25 h.p. and coming up empty or sufferin from sticker shock, I think I found a deal. I bought a 1994 Johnson 40 h.p. 2 stroke tiller with elect. start and hyd tilt assist. This motor is extra clean, not even any wear on the factory paint on the skeg or prop. Compression tested 150# on both cyls. Popped right off and idled down smooth. Revved freely. No lower end noise. Flowed water fine with muffs (didnt have a test tank handy to check the pump at the time). This motor cant have much time on it, looks and runs like a first year motor. Walked away with it for $1400.00. I think it was a great deal. Me and the mafia will be rippin the "Bash" soon. I'll get some pics posted as soon as I can. Later ya'all !
