Who is going to be getting a new (or new to them) boat this year?

I saw a thread like this on a different site and it was fun to follow.

I got a new Lund 1750 Fisherman last fall, w/115 Merc EFI 4 on it. Can't wait to get it on the water, hoping to get to the river in the next couple of weeks. With the industry in a bit af a slump I think I got a very fair price.

I love my 2000 Lund Rebel 16' and hope it lasts forever! The new boats are much more heavy (I don't need a 50HP on my 16' boat thank you!). I have been looking for a replacement for my Rebel but the new boats are too heavy. I want a light boat for towing purposes (tow behind small truck) with a floor, livewell, some storage and there are not too many options.

I wish I could get a new one every year but I got one last year. A Crestliner 1700 superhawk with a 70lb thrust bowe mounted minnkota, a bowe mounted locator, and a console mounted lowrance 522c Thought about buying a new lowrance for the console and putting the console one on the bowe. But the truck needs replacing more than a year old locator.

I'd settle for a buzz around the lake in your Bass Cat, but some fishing wouldn't bother me, either smile

A bass guy and a cat guy. I guess both those fish are bottom feeders.

I was thinking along the same lines Harvey. Does anyone think that Deitz is going to let someone prepare cut bait ot stink bait in that pretty new boat? smile

Acutally, I bass fish quite a bit. Catfishing has been a fairly recent endeavor for me. I enjoy both!

I plan on buying a boat this summer...I would do it now but the savings needs to be used for a down payment on a home. For all this to come together I need to find a permanent job first. My job is done in May unless I get offered a permanent position, which is probably less than a 50/50 chance.

    • We can only hope to catch a bigger party crappie than him! 
    •   I never followed the Farve story, so don't know the details.  If I had to guess, it would be similar to Rush's.. Rush's story was more interesting to me because he is such a complete hypocrite on the issue.   Arizona hasn't legalized weed, but they are taking on the prescription drug problem, which is the root of the hard drug problem.  (You know, the part you and the feds refuse to acknowledge.)  I suggest you view the "RX to Addiction" video I posted earlier, and the link above to see what steps they are taking.    The feds actually act as an enabler for hard drug addiction.   If you have done your homework at all, you should know this.     Pointing out the double standard for enforcement of drug laws is part of the answer, which again, you refuse to acknowledge.          
    • How come you aren't talking about Bret Farve? Same as Rush, didn't go to jail either.   Are you aware of any cases of people going to jail for this behavior?   They don't seem to make the news.     AZ way behind, several states already have legalized recreational weed.   It is coming nation wide.     For me, the real question is what are sometimes called "hard drugs".   Heroin, Cocaine, Meth being the big three with a whole bunch of others like fetanyl etc.    Making them legal and sold otc like recreational marijuana seems to me like it would be a bad idea, although there are folks that seem to think otherwise.   And they are part of the "war on drugs"     So, I keep asking the folks here who are saying "end the war on drugs" what that means.     So far, not much for concrete answers.   Fingerpointing at affluent pill addicts that get treatment, or those that die, is not an answer.     

    • Of course they are Nick, that is what they do. The sad part is you only think one party is capable of this, your not nearly as dense as JV so you should be picking up on these things by now. Just because one party is less evil in your eyes doesn't mean you shouldn't see through their negative contributions to this country.

    • Hardly, I'm advocating we had the worst two choices in the history of America that I am aware of. Well done two party system, you make yourself less relevant by the day.

    • Ha ya I didn't realize he was that bad. I haven't heard anything relating to protecting players at the trade deadline CM so hopefully that is bunk. I suspect Chuck waits until the prices come down and picks up someone for cheap that will be just a filler, these guys are going for pretty high prices right now.

    • Isn't this up your ally Del? He probably has some success but it would depend on the "patient". Many people have probably healed themselves through the placebo of religious beliefs. If it works it works, who am I to argue if they are getting results but I will admit I doubt anything works across the board for everyone, we already proved that with modern medicine. 
    •       But Trump is going to make America Great Again, so he should be more open with his press briefings, even if it means some of the reporters aren't always friendly.
