New Boat Pics

Recommended Posts

My grandpa and I got our new boat ready yesterday and took her out today. It was really good. The stability was great and our little motor moved us well enough. We put 3/4 inch ply on the fron and back and 3/8 in the middle with 5 braces holding it up. Im not sure what the carpet is but I never had a hook get caught up in it.

Here are the pics:

Yeah. Weve got one on the back already but we need a new battery more than a motor. Our old battery has seen around 5 or 6 years of hard fishing and its going down.

We made the deck go over the hump thing rather than level with it. Then we took a jigsaw and cut out the squares for the livewell and the storage compartment. The glue doesnt work on metal or we would have stuck it down a little differently.

Thanks for all the comments. We took her out yesterday rondef, it did really well.

70gamefisher, I dont know if you meant the wood around it or the actual pump part. I already put how we did the deck and the pump is just a fishsaver thing I got at wallmart for $28. Its pretty straight forward haw to install it.

If I knew where its at Id tell you but it says that it wont work on metal. I was thinking on using gorrila glue or something just to finish the edges. We let the carpet hang down a little so if we want to set on the edge of a deck the hot alluminum wont burn the backs of our legs. Were taking it out again tomorrow after we did some mods. And we got a freaken big battery 8-)
