Well I went off the deep end and got a boat I’ve wanted for a long time. A 16 foot 52” Jon. smile
All the used ones were either to beat up, or priced to high for a used unit. So I just went and bought a new model. [Linked Image]

Very nice! That 25 will be plenty to get you around. I have a 1652 with a 1978 35hp and it gets me where i need to go. My motor is so old its probably equal to a 25hp anyways lol

Congrats on the new sled~thumb ! That 25 should put it around 30mph or sightly more on the GPS. I've got a 1648 river Flat nose, and get 29 with an E-tech 25, factory prop. That was before I built storage boxes, added an I-pilot Terrova, and all the other gear. grin

Thanks everyone. Every time I step outside and see her, I get excited. I’ve wanted one like this for a long time.
I’m hopping I have the patience to wait to take it out until I get the floor and maybe the sides done. But I know there will always be something to do to make it better. smile
Right now I’m trying to decide where to place the fish finders. [Linked Image]

My 1652 has a center console and i have my fishfinder mounted there. It works good when im driving around looking for brushpiles. That being said i spend more time fishing off the deck and wish i would have mounted it to the deck. I only have 1 fishfinder. I see you have 2 i would mount one on the front and the other by where you steer. I would not mount it to the seat instead i would buy a ram mount that clamps to the gunwale. Just my 2cents

Is there a chance you might have a picture of your 1652 with a center console?
