No sir! Can't wait to learn how to drive it and get used to it. Will be a little different then the 21 ft bass boat with a 250 on it. Have allot of cleaning to do and set it up the way I want. Then get it covered before it snows.

My brother started buffing it yesterday. Wow what a difference!!  Ok so I pulled all the wood off over the winter I'm going to sand and finish.. What's a good poly that won't break down in a year?

Sick of this wheather! Waiting to get back to work on the boat. Brother got me a 24" lightbar for it to add to rocket launcher. Have my side curtains and backs to get the clear plastic redone. Bought a 10" hummingbird to upgrade 1 of the 350a

First coat of teak oil on after loads of sanding. Have some new electronics to install to update but almost ready for spring to get it up a running!

Its mahogany that was in rough shape.. I have 3 coats of helmsman teak oil on it. Was wondering if a waterproof like Thompson's or Cabot would soak in now with the oil in it. Or a epoxy I just don't want it to get that yellow flakey like you see on some older boats
