Whew....having my first cup and thinking...wow...I'm driving to Bluff City to get my 1880.  There are so so many thoughts.  Calm on one side...nervous on the other.  My first boat was a little tin one...now I'm getting a bigger tin.  People who run Watson's have been amazing...truly amazing but at least for me having reached the golden years they say ya think of things a bit different.  Best part of the deal will be when my grand kids get in...next best will be I won't have to empty the wallet to go fishing.  Like I said...lots of thoughts...

Will try and post pic's when can...may all of you have a blessed day.

Some say the two happiest days of your life is when you BUY a boat and when you SELL said boat. While I can't testify to the latter I will say boat ownership has opened my life up to many beautiful sunrises, once in a lifetime opportunities, and unforgettable moments with my boys. My boat isn't the biggest, fastest, or most technological. But, it IS the perfect boat for me and it is PAID FOR. 

 

May your boat fuel many opportunities to spend time with the ones you love and bring you fond memories during the times you can't be on the deck. Life is at it's best when you're on your boat. 

 

Congrats. You deserve it. Go make some memories.

That's awesome.  Like @A-Jay said, you definitely deserve this.  You have been so patient and positive about your previous boat issues that it has actually inspired me to work on my own patience level for all things mechanical.  Enjoy this new boat!

First trip was impressive...the little thing gets on pad with absolute ease....quickest boat for me ever.  Have to get this two hour break in over with to know things better ... then the six or eight hours...can't remember.  But the two hour first.  Cannot believe either how much room inside it has....believe it will work.  Oh...another thing...the trailer tires have bearings that require no maintenance for 100,000 miles.....crazy.  

Soon as I got it home my son and I took it out for a Tuesday nighter.....wow....was I rusty.  Got the skunk off the boat but all I could catch was multi species and a couple dinks...son had some keepers.  Now I need a day to set up spot lock and see what electronics look like and and and.

Glad mama lets me work at golf coarse to pay for this baby.

My world is crazy...will try and get pics...have been told how I'm just ...well....kinda a dummy on this kinda stuff.  Hope wife or son will help me today or tomorrow.  Besides...only have one dark pick of boat.  Had to pour a patio right after I got the boat and then go to work....Saturday I hope to be in boat ALL DAY.

Besides J Franco told me how to do it and I pulled it up but.....Froze...I've pressed buttons on computers and weird &%!@#  happens.

I will post pics...really....but had to mention this morning before heading to work that I sure lived in the back ages....OMG.  Spot lock is AMAZING...gosh....wow.  Number two....spending two long days on the lake and the fuel gauge has to be frozen...it barley moved.  My other boats fuel gauge acted like a thermometer going into a cold day.  Also had my two older grandsons and son in boat yesterday and we moved around pretty good.  Didn't bring enough food but that was the only glitch!!
