    Sad day - pulled the 'toon off the lake

    'Twas a sad day yesterday. I finally had to pull the boat and start prepping it for storage. It wasn't as difficult as I thought it would be, considering it was the first time I did it without a dealership techie helping out. I think next time I will soap down the carpet on the bunks so the...

    Ack!! Did I do some damage?

    Took the kids out tubing with my t50 powered 20SF. Used a 12' Airbuddy tube harness, which seemed to work great at first. However, due to inattention, the harness cable was caught by the prop between riders (Operator error :( ) The engine seems to run just fine, but now I'm getting surface...

    Week Long Lay-up

    The parts I ordered with my boat are finally in, and the dealer came and picked up my boat this morning.  Since this is my first boat bigger than a 14' aluminum boat, it was fun fighting the stiff wind while loading on the trailer. When I get my boat back, I will have a 20' SF with tilt...

    Bow Gates

    I bought a 20 footer with the fishing package. The bow gate is set up with a large opening for a trolling motor. Is it possible to get a regular gate with a smaller opening? We have 3 smaller dogs, and would like to take them along on the boat without worrying whether they might slip out...
