Just have to think of a good name for her. Any suggestions? I thought of "White Knuckles" or "30 Something" the later only due to the fact that my B day was yesterday.

A GREAT BOAT(ON OF MY TOP CHOICES ON MY SEARCH). WHAT DID YOU PICK FOR ELECTRONICS? ARE YOU TRAILERING OR DO YOU HAVE A SLIP? TOM D

Tom,

I am choosing to trailer the boat for a while. It definately has its strong points. If I feel like taking it to Barn Island or up to the Cape I can where as if I keep it around by me I think it will limit me. I have not put any electronics in it yet only because of $$. Plus where I will be fishing the next few weeks I really do not need any. But next month I will be putting in a Lowrance GPS/Sonar unit and instead of an on board radio I am choosing a hand held unit from Uniden. That way I can listen to the weather at home or in the car when I am traveling to new fishing grounds. The only other things I would like to add is rod holders,some tackle trays in the console and a bow rail and just maybe a poling platform. All of the add ons will come in time though. I need to run the boat for a while and see what its short comings are and from there I will figure out the "wants" from the "needs". I am sure the boat will have way more "wants" than "needs" by the time its all said and done. I really love the boat and how simple it is as well as the fact that there is not alot of gadgets and things to go wrong. All in all I am very pleased with the company and the boat. I spent 5 years looking and researching the best value for the dollar and I really think it was the right choice.
