    Gary, I exchanged the head unit and had it upgraded. I haven't had a chance to take it out and see if works the way its supposed too. The dimensions are 62" long 17" wide and 17" deep. I think It will hold around 77 gallons of water filled to the top. I think Skipeye said it would be around 650 lbs weight.

    That livewell turned out nice and ought to hold a bunch of fish!!! Glad you finally got what you wanted.

    Hate to see my old rod rack cut in half but the way your boat is set up it ought to work better for you where you put it.

    Good Job!!!!!!

    Sounds like a great night! Where were they? What depth/structure?
    Glad you got out. How did the livewell work out?
