    Perimeter L.E.D lighting

    Go to E-Bay and search for 5M RGB Waterproof. They adhere to the bottom edge of deck frame nicely. You can pick whatever color you want that day.

    GPS Fish Finder Chart Plotter

    I got the nod to purchase myself a father's day gift today after finding bottom while looking at my phone GPS map. Luckily, it was muck bottom so my gift does not have to be a new prop. :P Does anyone have suggestions for a GPS Fish finder/ Chart Plotter?

    Looking for boating spots

    I have been looking for years for a lake to call my own, the rivers can be bad depending upon the weather. It seems that all lakes that i want to go to are private. Lake Koshkonog just north of Janesville WI is pretty good.

    New Boat over weight for trailer sold with it
