    I don't know if I told ya'll or not but for the last 6 months I have been eye balling a very nice 16.5 deep V alum boat with a 50 hp johnson. The guy was asking $1000 for it. With buying the new house and all it was hard going saving any money. I had about $400 saved up. Then a few weeks ago my wife got a bonus at work. One morning as I was getting ready for work she walked in the bathroom and handed me $600 and said happy fathers day.....Woo whoo!!. So anyways. After work I went straight over to the guys house to check things out. Sadly he was out of town. Getting to the point once I finally got ahold of him he said before I bought it he wanted to take it out on the lake and make sure the motor was in good shape (has not ran for a little over a year) and all tuned up. He is finally getting around to it this up commng weekend and the following weekend I will take possesion of it.

    I can not wait. It is not the biggest or the best boat out there. But it is perfect for a starter boat and for the type of fishing I want to do. With a 50hp it should have enought go to even pull my kids around on a tube. My wife is the greatest :-D

    Congrats on the new boat. Even the fanciest boat don't always catch fish. I should know mines about to fall apart but it floats and fishes and never left me stranded. Well delayed but not stranded.

    Congrats on the boat. Hopefully in about 5 or 6 months I will be saying the same.
