Yesterday was the day for the lake test of the new boat. What a trip. What a boat. I am like a new kid with a new expensive toy.
We are almost done with transferring everything from the old boat to the new boat. Aaron has been helping a lot along with my neighbor Dave.
We have installed a new wash down pump and then Dave fixed the leaking handle. New downriggers have been mounted along with a couple rod holders from the old boat.
Cleaning the new boat has been a high priority and she shined up like a beauty.
One of the nice things is how quiet this boat is and how much room there is.
I know you will all feel very comfortable.
See you soon
I made the plunge and will be selling the Bertram If you know of anyone that is interested please let me know. The listing is in the boat section of Craigslist in Northern Michigan.
The new boat is a Tiara 3100 open. Wow is it nice, seems to have more room, lots and a lot of upgrades compared to the bertram The boat is new to me even though it is a 1996.
I started looking a couple months ago and evaluated many scenarios. I wanted to do a lot of work on the Bertram and felt it might be better at this time to just upgrade.
I should have pictures up shortly. I still have to have the boat inspected and switch some of th electronics. New downriggers are ordered. I hope to be fully operational in the next week.
Stop by and say hello. The boat will be parked in the same slip on the river in Leland.
Fishing for Lake Trout has been fantastic. There seems to be a lot of fish and they have been hungry. A couple small salmon have been caught, but they were not big enough to keep
