Like a lot of you guys, I also have an older boat. I’ve spent the last five years rigging and re-rigging the war machine for cat fishing and never really spent much thought on how she looked. My wife has been asking me to spruce up the old boat so I’ve taken the task this spring of improving the boats looks. I started with reupholstering the cushions. Then I para corded the steering wheel and the T top handles. After that I bought some green dock lines and some green lanyards for my bait station tools. Next I seadeked my yeti loadout buckets and added some green monster rod holders to my T bars. I also added 4 more flush mounts to give me 28 rod holders on the boat and man a little bit of green goes a long ways! I’ve got plans to add a non-slip deck surface in the near future. I can barely recognize the old boat. Wish I would’ve done it years ago. Here’s some pics of what I’ve done so far...

First the Upholstery.

Thanks amigos! cheers The boat is a 23ft 2004 Polar 2310. It has been a hell of a catfishing boat especially on these big water lakes we fish.

Great looking rig!

I keep the boat clean during wife boating season Ed. In the winter i fish the boat hard and put her up wet every week. In the spring and summer Jaxon and I fish in the mornings and then we pick wife up around 10:45. Sometimes we fish, sometimes we just all hang out and listen to tunes. I bought Jax a tube so we’ll start pulling him after we fish pretty soon. It’s a better pleasure boating experience when the boat isn’t coated in 3 months of blood and slime. So I’m told wife
