Still round 1500. I might get a shallow water pole anchor system or a powerpole micro. Had some winds this morn. It sucked. Only caught 3.

What's the brand? Is it something they sell at Home Depot?

Thanks for the tip on the foam. Your boat is looking good man. I need to finish mine up. Getting the itch to get out on the water. Man, I just need a day off!

Looking good, you must be running some skinny water to need a jackplate on that thing.

No the idiot at the dealer mounted it like crap. Sold me a boat package that required a mudd motor on a boat i wanted a regular outboard. This was unacceptable. The transom was already starting to bend.

I see what your saying, 1st time you would of run that skeg up on something hard the whole unit would of peeled off, those two bolts weren't going to provide much insurance.

Are you going to set it up for bowfishing or just want more room to move around while fishing?
