Default El Pescador about ready

With boat prices and honesty the way my boat handles the water i decided to get a facelift instead of a new boat. Got a photo today and glad i went this route. New console, leaning post, put storage where i wanted and changed colors

Im not doing it trust me. Im just paying the tab but its alot less than a new sled. It is limited shallow but gets thin enough for me but if I gotta go across big water its the best bay hull ive owned.

Made that same decision with my 98 Skeeter. Tuned her, buffed her, bought her new jewelry. She’s happy now. Not only that, those young ones are expensive. Lol

Beck @ Davids in Seadrift doing the work. Here is a before shot and it makes it look good. Port wade cut was cracked bad enough i had put resign and cloth on it along with about 4 other places. Had some obvious where the nav lights were in the front. The dead rise was chewed up and and patched.

They did a knock out job Glen and the color - spot on!

She fits in with the Coastal Bend history of that hull design - one of the Texas original designs for skinny/choppy water navigation.

Looks like you started off with a solid rig and are getting it like you wanted, good stuff. That will get you anywhere you want to go from Ingleside on a lot of days that most will stay on the lift.
