    Re: Opinions on a new boat..

    I stored my boat on the side of my house and ended up getting a boat cover for it. seems to be holding up well

    Nova, my buddy has to trim his motor down at the garage door header and then raises it again after the motor is fully in the garage.

    I store mine indoors but I bought a boat cover that is exceptionally well designed for my set up. Here is the web address, price is very reasonable and the offered a military discount so I picked one up. Enjoy your early Christmas present!

    The plugs on a lot of fish boxes are just a standard boat drain plug. Could be an ez and local fix.

    Took her out this morning to Suisun / Montezuma for a break-in and some fishing. - WOW.

    She is unreal, smooth, plenty of space, and feels extremely safe. I can't say enough. One mishap, i dropped one of my fishbox plugs in the water, can I call Hewes on Monday and pay to have one shipped?

    Yep, will do. I need to upgrade my box to a livewell before hali/striper/rock cod/lingcod action season in the bay for some live bait and see if I can get an anchor roller installed tomorrow @ GFMarine. My old boat was great, and when my neighbor first saw it "now thats a fishing boat"

    I love the space this has and the way everything works.
