Our New Toy

Here is our most recent purchase. An inexpensive old boat in excellent shape. We sold our camper a couple years ago but still love to go to our campground and fish. We’ve been keeping our eye out for a boat.

We finally ran across the right one. It’s the perfect size since we won’t go real often but nice to have when we want it. We’ve done a few things to it like remove the seats and cover the bench seat with carpet, so we don’t burn our bottoms. We just did not like the seats. Much prefer the bench seat. We put in a fishing pole holder and little things like that.

We have a canal right by our house and we took it out for a test drive. To make sure the motor worked properly and that there were no leaks or problems before taking it somewhere farther away.
Boat 04

Everything seemed to check out great. No problems.

She has claimed the front seat as hers.

Next up, we both had driving lessons. That way everyone knows how to load, unload and drive the boat.

We learned the regular motor and trolling motor.

All went well for the first time out.
