    Niiiiiiiiiiiiiiice............ Better be some beverages left when I finish extricating myself out from underneath this thing! The monkeys already stole my shoes cuz my legs were hanging out the side. Never open the crate even if it sounds like Linda Carter is stuck in there. Yes I am dating myself here and yes they are really good at voice imitations.

    Those look awesome!

    I surely didn't know- but I grew up living on a lake- it's in my blood- fishing, that is... I'm restoring my boats lately, so it has been on my mind again.. Long way to go on both boats, though..

    Thanks Rich , I've been a pretty avid fly fisher and spin fisher for most of my life , gonna get me a 12 or 14 ' jon boat and start a little lake fishing soon and really get back to the fly fishing also :)


    I'd be beyond my capabilities working on cane fly rods Glen , I have been fortunate enough to have owned and fished some Leonard cane rods and a Payne cane rod , fantastic rods , long gone now , I've since used a few Kunnan graphite fly rods and my favorite a Sage fly rod , have not gotten around to building one yet , built plenty of spinning rods though .

    Great idea, Herb. My 12' V Hull needs new seats, new flotation, and the transom has some pretty bad rotting going on.. It's aluminum, and I've had it since about 1964. I no longer live near a lake, so it has been sitting upside down in my back yard for the past 30 years... I also have a Johnson 8 horse motor from the early 1980's, with about 8 hours' running time on it. I bought it brand new, then moved unexpectedly. I think the fuel tank still has the original gas in it- :eek:

    Since I don't have a full sized van or trailer any more, it is a low priority rebuild, but I want to have it ready to roll, in case the opportunity arises to get out and use it again before I croak...

    The main thrust of effort is going into my tiny 8' fiberglass V hull sailboat- most of the mahogany trim has been either rotted or removed, the aluminum edging is off, the rub rail has shrunk to unusable length.. Otherwise, it's still sound. I usually like to go in that one, as it's easier to haul it around. Seldom use the sail, I have a big old Minn Kota 9500 trolling motor, and it's a small, lightweight, stable boat- great for fishing by myself, or with a friend. Much easier to use the little motor to get off in the little side pools along a river with such a boat. The other upside is I can always get back to shore pretty easily.. Not always the case with the sail, plus the sail/boom/rudder take up too much valuable space.
