2004 Lowe Stinger 180 with a 115 Yamaha 2 stroke. Boat is kept on Lake of Egypt and occasionally fishes bass tournaments but mostly slays big crappie. I haven't fished out of it for a few months because someone stole the trolling motor off it!

Boat - 2006 Lund 2025 ProV
Motor - 250HP Yamaha 250 4 stroke and T8 4 stroke kicker
Tow - 2008 Toyota Sequoia or my cousin's 2007 Toyota Tundra

Pictures are on the day I purchased the boat back in the summer of 2013.

For 2014, I added Cisco Lund Mounts and a Cisco Track. On the Track i mounted 2 Cannon Mag 10's and 3 Cisco Rod holders. Since the boat was new to me I couldn't get myself to drill into the boat so I went this route.

Image

For 2015, I removed the Lund Mounts and drilled into the boat to mount the track and added 2 Cisco Tree Mast and 4 Cisco Dispy Diver rod holders. Who would have thought trying to take a Magnum wire dipsy out of a regular rod holder was so hard???

I just picked up a 1974 Boston Whaler Montauk 17 with a 1996 115 Johnson and a 2008 trailer. It needs some work but runs well.
I am planning on using it as is the summer and doing a full restoration over the winter.

Just acquired...1993 Sea Nymph. Hopefully powered by an old Merc outboard (whichever one I get running first). Would it be two obvious if I added a big red O on the side at the end of the word Nymph???

16' Sea Lion from the happy traveler marine. 70 h.p. evinrude.
Picked this boat up 28 years ago. All fiberglass. 20 years ago the deck got rotted. Gutted to just a hull. pulled all the wooden stringers out and welded up aluminum trusses. Installed them with the "West System" fiberglass. Cut and installed an old aluminum dock as decking.
It has served me well over the years, fishing rivers and small lakes. Have had it on the big pond about 10 times or so over the years, I really have to watch the weather.
Tight lines! See you on the water!

This year I picked up an old Lund Baron-1987, was repainted in 1996 so it has those colors. Has a 2005 Yamaha 150 4stroke 480 hrs.
everything about the boat was trash except floor ,which was half replaced. Had new Seacast transom poured in (lifetime warranty), new dash tops, new seats
Beefed up bow with 3/4 in plywood above and below the aluminum, added 120 lb thrust 72", 36v Rhodan trolling motor to bow, Lowrance hds 10 gen 2
to bow, Dual Simrad Nss 12's to dash, Sonarhub, Lss 1 and 83/200 transducer on transom, Simrad IS40 in dash. All electronics and graphs are linked, ethernet and
Nmea 2000, garmin 19v gps puck. I also added Cannon 36" tracks and two rod trees with 4 holders each, 4 Berts ratcheting rod holders. I have a 1994 merc 9.9
for a kicker with a Controllking throttle control. I have been working on this boat since Feb. I actually still have to install the controllking if this rain lets up. I also
just noticed one of my front deck pieces is rotting and that will be taken care of this winter.
It has consumed alot of time and money but it is a labor of love , I think once this boat is 100% it will be everything I wanted.
I had the boat out only for one 3 day trip to Erie in April and it performed great, at that time I had a 72" Motorguide Xi5 105lb. thrust motor on the front. That motor never let
me down but I sold my 1987 Lund Tyee 5.5 and the Xi5 went with it. I have not had a chance to run the Rhodan yet, just picked it up last week and installed the mount 3 days ago.
An injury in May derailed my summer fishing vacation as well as any other activities since. I will be back up and running soon ,hope to have boat on the big pond for some fall smallies
and November Lakers. Tight Lines
