Finally! I have a Boat...

20 posts in this topic

So i went out and purchased a boat from a fellow Fm'er who used to go by the name (Luckyfish). We strike up a conversation and he tells me he's good friends with Dennis Steele(i believe his old boat) and has taken out other FM'ers like wastewaterguru...So then and there i knew this boat had been treated well. Although John it doesn't have the jet motor anymore so you wont have to worry wink...after looking it over and deciding it had everything i wanted to get me on the river i pulled the trigger and bought it. Here are some pics: 2003 G3 MV1448 Jon Boat comes w/ Minnkota Co-Pilot 55lb thrust, Eagle Intellimaps GPS, Eagle 480 depth finder,1995 25 HP Mariner, 2 seats, lights rigged in front and electrical hook-ups near motor for high beam light, 1971 16ft Spartan trailer and i'm set!

Very cool man! This is exactly what I want for a Minnesota River boat.

Enjoy getting out down there on the river...boats make things much more interesting as I'm sure you know being a shorefisherman.

Thanks Everyone! Hopefully i can get her out in the mornings since i work overnights all week until Tuesday. But that works out better since this is my first boat and i want to get used to the river before venturing out at night.

Yeah especially with how low and shallow the river is in your area in many spots.

I remember fishing the stretch by Judson out of that boat a few times. It definately has some history.

    • It's a fat chick too! Nice pictures eyeguy!!
    • Stayed in a Holiday Inn Express last night.
    •   Ok, well what color would he like? I got some left over rounded ones from the kids so he wouldn't stick himself even!
    •   Bahaha, was checking to see what the new slug for deer hunting maybe, also? 
    • PF - Sorry to let you down.  I see you are a slug expert!!!!
    • Sheesh.  I clicked on this from the recent topics page thinking there was a new deer hunting thread......  Get a spray bottle with a salt solution and give them a shower. I think water with Dawn soap might be an option
    • I am flattered fellas, but in rebs defense he did say " goodies" and not "goods" or he would have some explaining to do . between the different s.i.t.e.s.  were on I post no shortage of food shots ,so reb grab that scissors from leech lol. You pick up  a belly yet moon lake?
    • wren chick sat on a chair on the deck for over 2 hours. cute little bugger

    • I think last year was probably the best/first year we should have gone for it at the deadline so no regrets on that one. We got Pommers at the deadline as well but he had some years left and we were able to resign him and overall he has produced for us so no biggy there either. I'm sure we all wish we could take back the Matt Moulson trade back, that was the only bad one that cost us a couple of 2nd rounders and he looked terrible, but again hindsight is always 20/20. The rest were all minor deals that didn't do much either way.    Someone will get moved at some point, we just can't fill out a team and or sign Grandlund & Nino without it, at least not that I can see. Sounds like we had a deal for the Canadians first but their guy was there so they kept the pick, no problem with Fletcher being patient on the trade front, might have to wait until some teams don't fill their needs via free agency before a move happens. 

       
    • anyone else have any issues with ChartInstaller? I last used it on my laptop a month or so ago and it worked fine. I am getting ready to go to North Dakota for a couple days and wanted to download some areas to my card that I hadn't before.   I removed the sd card from my Hummingbird Helix and put it in the laptop. Opened the CharInstaller program that was already installed and was prompted to update. I downloaded the new Chart Installer.exe file and no matter how many times I download it, reboot and retry install etc it will not install. I just get an error "There has been an error. Unknown Error upacking file C:/Program Files (x86)/Chart Installer/nwjc.exe   So while doing the upgrade I lost my desktop icon with no software to update my chart. I understand there is a 1 year subscription but I just got my navionics+ and put it on this card last October.   Any ideas?
