Well I started my mods and upgrades.
My first is a new MinnKota Power Drive 50# trolling motor, also had the digital maximizer for hopefully better battery life.
The boat came with a dedicated battery set up for the trolling motor which the previous owner had put in the front bench seat. Thankfully he had cut to opening large enough so that when I decided to add my battery up there as well I only had to remove a little more foam and so I then ran the 2 batteries in parralel and have the trolling motor on one and my fish finder on the other.
So then I decided to add a platform using the front bench seat and attaching a aluminum angle to the console to support the back part of the platform and then attach my pedistel seat ( I believe I will need to get the removable seat attachment so I can see to drive) .
I have also added so new side horizontal holder for rod storage and a Scotty fly rod holder.
Still trying to work on how to use my portable live well (made from a cooler) and have the bilge pump ready for dual purpose, adding water and circulating water in the live well and also ready for any water removal if needed in the boat.
I hope to put swivels under the boat seats that came with the boat and a swivel seat on the back bench.
Then I also got a bimi to place the mounts so when I may nee the bimi I can just mount it on.
It is ready to fish right now, but today I had a Funeral to go to for a young man, Sargent Dan Brown, who gave is life over seas and his parents are good friends. The support of the community was awesome as they lined the route to the cemetery saluting as the family went by. He knew Our Lord so we will meet again.
There will be a few more modifications and additions in time, but for now we are fishin
