It will never be wet long enough to matter if it is stored on a trailer. Great progress - you are on a mission. Trolling motor in the works too? where do the cables/controls from the console go between there and motor?

Today was 6 hours of wire work. I was chasing a gremlin...i knew and maybe you do too..on Chinese LED crap red in neg and black is positive. All my new lights are led. I was cheating the existing wires and going to town. Well fuses were blowing and nothing working. I bout lost my mind. I finally decided to chase down all original wires for shorts. Well heck about every 4 feet under the factory wire wrap the factory fused and crimped all ground wires together. Ugh i understand why, had to re work alot of my soldering and heat shrink work. Tomorrow will be a better day...

Awesome. Well done. Does the $4900 cost exclude the golf cart? Pretty much a brand new boat! Should just be some maintenance for a few years at least!

Everything worked flawlessly. Top speed was 18, so gained 2 mph. Research shows a prop change should get me into high 20s. The graph worked perfectly and side images was clear all the way to top in! I was was surprise honestly. Usually my graphs go crappy after 10 mph.

Thanks for all the encouraging comments. I plan to hit Tawakoni soon for some dead sticking. Then off to drop it off at Fork nd chase crappie when I can.

Those night shots look great! I used to tie up to pillars and spend the whole night fishing them on Whitney, letting rope out or in as needed. Your gonna have a ball with that boat!

Mine turned 11 in January. Same color and sex. And from another TBHer too. She loves going for a boat ride. Throws a fit if I pull the boat out of the driveway without her.

The fish are biting, and there's hogs to be kilt. Gotta go!
