based on past posts on this topic i think it sounds easy to do and wont take a huge amount of money out of your pocket to put in the console in fact i have thought about doing it to my boat too. with the tiller trolling can get wet compared to with the console. the tiller doesnt take up that much space in the boat when you are trying to fight a big fish. the console can get in the way sometimes. with the bigger waters it can get kinda rough out there so the console would be an easier way of controlling where you want the boat to go. but other than that i think it is just a matter of personal preference if you like the tiller and have no problem controling it than i say stick with the tiller but if you dont like sitting in the back of the boat and dont like how you control the tiller than go with the console. as far as buying a new boat if you have the money and can afford it i say go ahead then you dont have to spend the extra money in putting the console in the boat and you could use the money for the new boat. i dont know what size boat you are looking for but i would suggest a Lund 1700 angler ss. great boat big enough for a family to fish out of with a big enough motor to ski and fish and very wide the console wouldnt even come in the way with this boat sportshow had it for 13000-14000 retail is aboout 17000 might be out of your price range or not but best all around boat i have seen. thats my two cents. hope this helps.
there is a topic down the page on this subject to.

    • I doubt it but you can call the DNR and ask. You can pull up the regs on a smart phone anyway.
    • ......The 6 packages from the first round are long-gone, so I am brining up another batch. Ended up buying an entire case of butts (@ $1.18 per #) from Sams. I am going to do 3 butts - one with High Mtn buckboard seasoning and two with another dry brine consisting of Tenderquick, brown sugar, garlic salt, and black pepper. I always like getting to the raw ingredients of spices versus relying on someones "magic rub". If it goes badly I will revert back to the HM cure. As an added note, I also picked up a $20 loin that I put HM cure on to experiment with some Canadian bacon.... Will check back in 10 days or so!  
    • if thats the case i hope there printing water proof versions!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i cant keep mine nice and tidy in the cab of my truck!!!!!!!
    • Have not heard this. Why just a boat? It needs to be in some peoples buckets to so when their 500 fish over their limit they can't say I no know, I no know? 🤷‍♂️
    • Got mine yesterday during the snow.  I was informed that there is a new rule requiring the MN Fishing Regulations be carried on your boat and that this new rule is not documented in the Regs.  Anyone know if this is fact or just a kindly recommendation?
    • Mike is as good as it gets, especially if you're talking archery.

    • Coyle for Donato and a 5th, not as bad as nino for rask because at least donato has some potential to be a better goal scorer but overall yikes, not thrilled with Fentons bigger trades so far, the smaller ones have been good but that is the problem. Either way all signs point toward a rebuild of some kind.
    • It's a prairie zone.  We're right on the northern edge of the hills, Just north of I90 near Sturgis.
    • Wow, Bobber! You resurrected an oldie from the good old days, here!    I STILL haven't tried this yet - although I have bought a LOT of Prague Powder between then and now.😁   I think any roast wold work but you might get a pretty fatty result with chuck.  If you're looking to make corned beef & cabbage for St.Patty's Day and eat it more like a pot roast - a little extra fat might not be bad. But if you're looking to make your own lunch meat or eat it cold, I think chuck would get a little greasy in your mouth.  Corned beef is traditionally made with brisket.   Maybe I'll give this a go - it's almost that magical time of the year - that sweet spot between youth hockey season and youth baseball season when I get to do what I want... sometimes.
