My brother had this 1996 Stratos 258V seating in the yard & I finally had enough so I bought it. My youngest son; the little one in the boat and my best fishing buddy Pat have it just about rebuilt. I'm waiting on new fenders and we're done.

Nice! So when is the launch date?

That boy looks like he could significantly increase your food bill. Of course, the work on the boat offsets some of that.  :)

Like my dad used to say,...you may be larger but you're not yet bigger.  If you don't understand, I can show you what I mean.  ;D

Good luck with her Tommy! :)

Pat is wearing a nice cap.

And do I see "football scholarship" in the future?

That is a nice boat. You all did a great job.

It takes some talent to put a bass boat back together, and a lot of patience. I wish I had both.

I know you told us some of the things you did but I am curious so I am asking......

Did you find any electrical or steering problems when you worked on her?

Did you put on any upgrades, like a more powerful trolling motor; better electronics on bow; circuit breakers; alarm systems; etc.?

Did you use any special chemicals to bring the hull back to a shine and to protect the hull and if so, what did you use other than wax?

Trailer seemed to be OK . Any improvements on trailer lights and did you install a Boat Buddy?

Lower unit OK?  Prop needed filing or is it OK, too?

Come on Catt, let us know what you did.

Thanks for sharing.

And that is a nice cap Pat is wearing.  ;D

No electrical or sterring problems

One up grade a Hummingbird 535 in the bow

Did you use any special chemicals to bring the hull back to a shine and to protect the hull and if so, what did you use other than wax?

Mother's California Gold Carnauba Cleaner Wax & a power buffer removed 90% of the oxidation.

Trailer seemed to be OK . Any improvements on trailer lights and did you install a Boat Buddy?

Lights all work and already had Bearing Buddies

Lower unit OK? Prop needed filing or is it OK, too?

Lower unit was fine; changed the grease

Hand polished the prop till I could see myself
