Lets See You Boats!

Recommended Posts

Today was the annual get the boat ready for hunting/fishing season, fishing season by itself can make a mess of a boat so I had to reorganize and get her ready and while I was doing it I was thinking it would be nice to see everyone's rigs so post them up.

Gee.........there's enough detail there as if you were selling your ride! LOL!

Ok, I'll join in. Lord knows I have enough photos of my boat over the years. :secret-laugh:

I guess I should start off with a few before and after photos. I'm the 3rd owner and when I got her, she needed a little "love and care".

So some wet-sanding and hi-speed polishing made a big difference. Then I painted the trailer (rattle can budget) and I also sanded and polished the motor cowling.

You failed to mention the part about you finding that old Evinrude with most of the parts in a 5gal bucket! LOL! I think that's pretty cool. Having fished from this little rig, it's a very stable rig and a good fishing platform.

Third picture is from 5 years ago, when I took the doctor that got ALL the cancer out of my wife, and his son fishing...

I had told the doctor “I can’t afford much, but I could take him on a fishing trip, as my “thank you” for saving my wife...

Fourth one is the granddaughter’s fishing trip last year...

I'd say that boat looks great for 15yrs old. A well taken care of boat is always a good thing to see.

I saw a newer 21ft Triton on the road yesterday and it looked like he let his dog chew the tops of the seats off. I know the boat was less than 5yrs old too which is sad to see exposed foam on the tops of the seats on a boat that new. I freak out when I get a scratch!!!
