    well i cant fish because of my neck & shoulder so the only thing i could to is sit around and think of things my boat could use. so i ripped out the carpet in the back and installed vinyl, all new gas lines, 4 more rod holders, led lights for the trailer, led lights for night fishing, two new drift socks, roller guide-ons for the trailer,4 new reels, new tires on trailer, 2 new seats for the boat, had a live well made to fit the boat and a akwa-lung system installed on it, all the wireing installed front and back so i can put live well in the back or front of boat or take it out if i dont need it. so the only thing left to do was have a new paint job, well the old lund looks to good to fish out of now. i have to get some catfish and skipjack slime on it to make it ready. wish i would have took some before pic. but here a few of the after

    That's a fine looking rig you have there...way too pretty to be a catfish boat though. :roll_eyes: You need to smear some shad guts and cat slime on it to get it broken in :smile2:.

    Nice job on the rehab.

    Russ,
    Looks good. Well worth the work you put into it.
    How did the epidural go? Did it help at all?

    Russ,

    You did one hell of a job fixing her up! Fish ought to be jumping at the chance to get a look at her. Anytime you are looking for a human seat-warmer on that thing you give me a hollar and I'd be happy to do the job.

    I hope you get to feeling better soo so that you can get her out on the water.

    Nice job Russ. I really like that style of boat with the room to walk around in the back and high sides for a little more safety. When I get ready to buy I amdefinately gonna compare a Lund with the others. Good Luck.

    Russ it looks like you spent all that money that i gave you for your old boat on this one. It looks like a new boat I hope you have before and after pictures. I am ready to go.

    Russ I had that epidural where they put steroids in my spine and it was like a miracle for me. Hope it helps you out.
