Nice, Congrats BKT! She looks big in the photo. What are the specs on it? Do you have any plans to add some things to it or mod it?

Nice looking rig.thumb It's fun getting a new boat and I bet you'll get a lot of good use out of it. What size boat & motor do you have?

I have a 16' Tracker w/ a 25 HP Mercury and it is underpowered. Just takes a little longer to get there but I'm not usually going that far.

That's a 1652 weldcraft. I was partial to the layout of the bass tracker grizzly but my bettrr half was in love with this one. It has a 25hp Evinrude E-tec. She'll run about 25 - 28mph depending on load, water, wind and etc. but gets around 14-15 mpg!!!

So far the only thing I've done to it is make some make shift rod holders out of pvc (the kayaker in me I guess) and just installed a Humminbird Helix 5 Si gps combo. A bimini top or something to hold an umbrella is next on the list.

If I was to do it over again I think I would've gotten power tilt and trim. Though I found an after market kit that may be installed next year. It should set my motor back about 5" off the transom which in turn may help with my side scan.

The only negative I've found in the rig is that it's to easy to pick up and move spots so I usually wind up doing more riding than fishin!!

Here is my 79 model Eldorado I recently fixed up. Before and after. It was a fun project my sons and I did together. The engine is a 15hp Yamaha 4 stroke with electric start. I bought it brand new a couple of years ago. Runs great.

I hope to be on the red below the dam when the current settles. I'm not getting out there like it is now.

Here is my 10 year old son driving it on our maiden voyage after all the work was complete. She ran great and didn't leak a drop. It takes the water great, rides smooth, and is dry. Now its time to teach him all about boating safety, fishing, etc. He's all about it.
