DC, one of the reasons why I don't have seats is I won't pay for the lund seats way to much coin,as far as I'm concerned the ones you can buy at all the sporting goods stores BLOW whistle.

No, I mean step up to a flat floor and pedastal seats with your next boat.

Our old Grumman was deep and wide but had benches. After getting the Alumacraft, im highly annoyed with benches! lol

Although you might like the add-on we had in the old boat. We after a few years bought nice seats like in the traps that were heald on by a channel that ran the length of the bench. They were real nice for adjusting the seat where you wanted it. As we age sitting spread eagle or side saddle, plus crawling over the benches gets real old...

Here is a link to a seat mounting bracket real similar to what we had...

DC I fogot to mention that only where timmy and other passengers sit is a bench the middle and rear seat are split and can walk through.Lund makes a floor for my boat that are removable If I put this floor in it then I will have to go with the 40 hp E-tech and thats allot of coin about $1,400 more and no electric start.

I have fished out of the lund in question 2x's in as many weeks and I think it works just fine. Not to mention Todd takes me fishin and I will never kick a gift horse in the mouth!!!! gringringrin

P.S. Todd. Mr DEC did stop and question me on the way back to my truck Thursday. Asked if there was any eyes up in the canal yet? Asked if I was the only one fishing from shore whistlewhistle and then he walked away. He then came back across the road and asked to see my license...

Thats the 3rd time this year ive had the luck of running into them. 3 different officers too!!

    • Hey all...........thinking about pulling the trigger on a new bow for the upcoming season (I know a little late in the year, but it is what it is in my world).  Right now I am shooting an Elite GT500 which is a double cam bow.  Thinking about possibly going to a single cam instead of the double but not really sure if that is the route I want to take.  Looking for opinions from folk who shoot either and what they like don't like about the bow.  Not looking for any bow bashing, just what everyone likes and why.  Thanks!
    • I did this with a friend. I actually think it was what is called back bacon not buckboard as he cut it out of the rear loin instead of the shoulder. IMHO it tastes really good. Like a ham of sorts. If it goes over well then I'll do a batch from the shoulder and I think the extra fat content will work better.   I used a bacon mix from Walton's that I ordered. 
    • Was just out to the Cabela's in Rogers and they are clearing out and closing their bargain cave.  I think I have only bought two things in there in all the years they have been open so it's not a real biggy to me.  Thought I would pass it along. 
    • Still it  looks great. I've gathered that about buckboard being like CB but just a little different.  What kind of rub, wet or dry you try? Us guys need to know cuz it looks fabulous!
    • Hunted crow-Hassan last year, seen a nice buck out there, tried to call to him but he was on a mission! Drew as an alternate for Palmer lake, 6 spots and I was number 7, oh well maybe will still get to hunt a little.
    • In the last picture, the regular bacon slices are on the top and bottom. The buckboard pieces are the two in the middle
    • It's not bad but I don't think it's as good as the bacon. I think I maybe had too much of the fat trimmed off. It's more like Canadian bacon. 
    • Wow, great work PF. Tiring for sure, how did the backboard turn out? That's on my list this upcoming cold smoking season.
    • Here are some pics from our deck.
