Waiting...

Talk about anything that floats your boat (no pun intended). This is general talk about anything not related to boating/fishing.

I was supposed to pick up my new Crestliner Commander tomorrow, but I just got a text from the dealer telling me it willbe Thursday...

Thus waiting thing isn't any fun, especially since we have good weather now and won't this weekend.

I know how ya feel. I committed to purchase a new (to me) truck last Thursday and I finally got to pick it up today! Finally having it in your hands is the ultimate payoff despite the waiting process.

Thanks! I had her up to 47mph in this cold Michigan weather. Can't wait for higher temps so I can do some catfishing.

Full enclosure for sure! We fish the rivers all through the winter up here for steelhead. I've been 18 months straight having my boat in the water. Can't wait to slime it up, but not much going on in the rivers or lakes at the moment. What do you use as an anchor for rivers? We use a chain anchor.[ external image ]
