Finally back on the water!

Recommended Posts

Last summer we decided to buy a new house so I had to sell my Gambler. It was a sad day to say the least. Well, we finally closed on the house a week before Christmas and it was time to get another boat. I didn't want a white boat but I went and picked it up yesterday anyway. I'm starting to like white now. Its a little dirty, we towed it home 4 hrs in the rain yesterday.

2004 Gambler 2200

2004 Mercury EFI 250

27P Trophy

10" hydraulic jackplate

Low water pickup

Trim tabs

Just have to upgrade the console graph and I'll be done.

I can be up there next weekend if you want to break her in right. ;)

Only problem is that there isn't enough room there for my tackle bag.  :-/

Beautiful boat.  Considering the economic times you should have gotten a good deal on the house and the boat.  Your wife has a new house and should be happy enough to let you enjoy the boat, or maybe even sit behind the windshield on the passenger side of that boat with you ;).  Dual consoles are a real blessing for the guy or gal fishing the back deck.  Congratulations.

No tackle bag needed. Just bring a handful of spoons, 3 or 4 jerkbaits and a jig or two....it's winter time man.  :D

Nice.

The good thing about white boats is less maintenance to keep the cap and upper deck surfaces looking crisp, shiny with little oxidation worries.

The bad

White hulls stain.  Tidy bowl was the best thing I found to keep em clean.

Enjoy.

Sweet lookin' ride there!  Congratulations.  A little BTS on it and it will be a breeze to keep it looking that way - maybe even better.

Will you be bringing it to Kentucky?

Oh wait, that's right, you're flying.  :;)

d**n dude, I don't know what to say, that thing is off the hook.  There has to be at least 1/2 acre on the front deck, Gamblers rock.

Thanks for the compliments gentlemen (and Burley). I hope it lives up to my expectations.

I'm starting to really like those boats especially with all the front deck space.  Wonder why you don't see any pro's using one of these?

There are a couple of pro's that use Gamblers but not many. Last I heard, Gambler only makes about 100 boats per year. Unlike others who pump out thousands a year, 70 or 80 of the 100 boats that Gambler builds per year are actually custom ordered boats. Plus, Gambler doesn't spend a bunch of money on advertising so they are relatively 'unknown'.

Tin - I had it 74 when I tested it but I had to let off because my forehead was frozen! (It was 38 degrees Saturday morning). The guy I bought it from claims to have had it at 80 with some rpm's left and from what I saw during testing, I have no reason to doubt that.
