What a day! The sun has been shining, the air temp has been well over 60 and with the future forecast the local lakes will be rid of their ice in no time. Better yet, today I ordered my new Evinrude Etec HO 225 outboard! Dude, I am straight jacked! I’ve put a lot of love into my boat that I just couldn’t get myself to sell it. I have all the top of the line electronics between both Lowrance and Humminbird units and more importantly they are all rigged exactly the way I want them to be. I have a new jackplate and just mid last season I added a brand new Minnkota Fortrex 101 to the bow. All my boat batteries are new last season as well as new seat skins sitting next to me just waiting to be put on.
I also put brand new tires on the trailer as well as all new brakes and master cylinder. I even got a new swing away tongue. All this and my only real issue was my engine that has a bragable 1000 hours on it as well as a warranty that freshly expired.
I looked at pricing out a new boat but in the end, I really really like my boat and now that my new engine is on order I can simply concentrate on fishing and enjoy the fact that I have a all around new boat that is already pimped exactly to my liking.
Next in line will be matching Power Poles and trust me they’ll be mounted on sooner than later.
See you on the water!!
