Got lucky and sold my Trophy in the dead of winter for top $$ and from there it was an all-out search for a new vessel the day it pulled out of the driveway. The Trophy treated me very, very well and I have no complaints but I really wanted to do a restore on a bigger, roomier hardtop for the Lady O!
Was able to buy this boat from a fellow member back in April and have been working on it ever since. Boat was/is solid but needed a new backboard, carpet removal and lots of cleaning/wet sanding. Numerous upgrades throughout including; new trailer, total re-wire, 3 bank batteries, dash panel, gauges, switches, wash-down system, bilge pumps, Bluetooth radio and tablet, led lights, usb charging station, spotlights, teak re-finish, custom passenger seat/tackle center, driver seat/cooler storage, Honda 8hp, alternator, riser gaskets, flappers and other minor engine preventive maintenance needsâ€¦. a little bit of diamond plate too just cause I love the looks of it.
Been out 4 times locally and FishBones is very smooth, stable, roomy, comfy and pretty damm quick if she needs to be (now propped correctly) The big test will be up at Catfish Creek this week 8/24-8/29. Iâ€™m excited and satisfied with how it all turned out and a bit anxious to get her back to her home lake all dolled up in her new outfit. Hope the Lady O is kind to her
