Well she will be ready for pick up on Saturday. ;D

The engine was mounted and the electronics will be in tomarrow.
I took the kids out to look at it and to take this picture.

No more freezing nights on the water.

Just thought I'd share. I feel like a little kid getting a new bike :D

So are you going to tell us which one it is or do we have to guess? ;D ;D

Nice boat. Get some Sharkhide and apply it to the aluminum to protect it from oxidation.

Man you got that right! I went to Donner yesterday in my new boat. The first time to have to put up the back curtain. The wind was darn near freezing cold. Sat in the cabin and warmed up a can of Cambells soup on the coleman stove. ;D
There's no way I coulda stayed with it in my old open boat.

Enjoy!!

What brand of boat is that...it looks like a NR. Very Nice.

Chapa,

I got some from Sunny's Elect Marine 1500 El Camino, Sac but that was the last quart. You might call around and check some of the shops. I hadn't been looking for it, but saw it and thought I'd give it a try. BTW I don't think Sunny's is open on Monday's. http://www.sharkhide.com

Yes, you can apply it yourself. Get a small terry towel or an old tshirt and fold it up to a 4" x 4" square and then soak it, but not dripping wet. Apply in long strokes and overlap about 1/2". Watch for runs or sags. Start near the lowest point of the hull until you get the hang of how much to apply to the cloth. It will dry to the touch in a few seconds and a second coat can be applied in 36 hours.

My Brother In Law owns a Hewes and loves it. You will get many years of enjoyment out of it. Congratulations. Can't wait to see it go by on the water someday.

Hey Freon

Yeah long time you still fishing Amador? I will start going up there in a couple of weeks I'm gonna try Salmon for a couple of more weeks. I havent seen Hog Hunter since earlythis year either. Maybe we can all do an Amador trip. I also got a Bar B-Q for the boat. Lets get some steaks and head out to the lake!!

Allways remember,though,that the two best days in life of a boat owner are the day you buy and the day you sell it (just did the same thing myself earlier this year). It is beautiful!

I disagree 10 Kokes in an hour and a half. Can't get much better than that. Well I guess 10 kings might do it. ;)

Hey Mickey how about the time you guys put five kings on the deck. Wasn't that the best day so far?
