Another year has past. I hope this post finds everyone in good health. Last weekend was the first time we were able to put the boat on the water for the start of it's 10th season.

And besides, no one is going to go out of their way to steal my $25 ice chest. And if they do, no big deal.

Yeti

Our kids gave the wife and I Yeti tumblers last Christmas. They do perform better than any other insulated tumbler I’ve ever owned. I’m in the market for a new cooler but a Yeti is out of my budget.

Alumacraft 1648 Project

The weather wasn't very good for the week. We arrived late Saturday to the cottage we had rented on Corey Lake near Three Rivers Michigan. We had family obligations on Sunday. Finally got out on Monday. The wife wanted to fish Thompson Lake, one of our favorites when we lived in the area. We were di...

Inexpensive Live Well Project

Thanks Dude. I only target Bluegill so the size of the cooler works for me. I change water with an old plastic coffee can every hour or so.

And they are good eating.

Inexpensive Live Well Project

Many of us like to keep some fish from time to time, but don't have a live well in our boat. I saw this on the internet, so this was not my idea. I thought I would give it a try and it was really simple and cheap to do. I bought a Bubble Box at Wally World for under $5.00. Batteries are suppose to l...

Thanks. The decks are secured with stainless steel screws through the carpet. Thanks! I apologize if this has already been discussed in this thread, but did you glue the carpet to your wood panels or is it just attached with stainless staples? No problem. The carpet is glued down using Henry 663. I...

Any way. getting ready for this boat's 9th season. Changed oil and filter as always and the water pump impel...
