Got boat  (Read 7810 times)

Jimmy:  Have you been able to get up north into the creeks with your boat?  I was thinking you had a smaller/lighter boat.  I know the big boats can't get up there.  I'm wondering if a jon boat could make it up into wilson or east fork.

Steve I just bought this one today. It's 14 ft but I think it will get up the creeks just fine. I'm hoping a new carb kit and that motor fires right up but you know how that can go. He threw in a trolling motor too. I'm picking it up Thursday evening and it will be in the water Friday morning motor or no motor. I'll look like Arnold......what's his name after a few months of rowing that puppy around.  icon_lol   icon_lol   icon_lol

Good luck with your Jon boat Jimmy. I work with Chris and Brady, in fact I was with Chris when he bought the trolling motor, so I know that it's fairly new. I just have a Jon boat and I get around with it. Just have to watch out for that wind.

Getting ready to get a battery for the boat and only one trailer light works. Would yawl spend the time and the cold going through the wiring or just by new and re-do it? What battery should I get at Wally world? 12 volt 30 lbs trust trolling and hummingbird lcr 4000 D/F finder is all my gadgets.

Shawn I'm putting it in the water tomorrow. Don't have the outboard running ( Havent even tried it) I went to wally world and bought the biggest badest deep cell marine batterry they carried and a new wiring harness for the trailer. Should have bought new tail light boxes too but I didnt. Any way i'm going to take it out tomorrow and check it out. May drop it in south lake for the first run just to be safe and check everything out. If all looks good and the wind isn't 25 + mph I'll see yawl on Lavon.

Thanks SteveO. I will admit it did turn out to be a good deal.
