Well it's a done deal ! We went and signed the papers at the credit union today and we pick er up Monday. Dealer had to order a shorter transom mount to accommodate my short shaft motor. It comes with 2 swivel seats in the rear & a canopy that's not on it yet in the pictures. Can't wait to take er out or her maiden cruise !

I can't wait to hear your reports on how well it fishes. Also, where did you buy it?

Cargo Plus in Middlebury. Went there first and got a price. Then went to Tippecanoe Boat Company and they gave me a price quite a bit higher. I told that guy I had found a better price and he got a crappy attitute but said he would match it. Then he acted like he didn't want to mess with it so I stuck with Cargo Plus who offered me the good deal to begin with.

We really like it Steve. Really nice to fish and swim from. It just the right size. She trailers pretty easy also since I put some guides on the back of the trailer to keep her lined up. I get in some pretty shallow water with it. I was able to get thru the channel from Pleasant to Riddles in Lakeville with no problems. The only thing is there's no room on the transom for a trolling motor. I may get a deck mount one next year for it but for now I can troll with my 15 hp motor pretty well.
