Forgot about Taylorsville Lake. Also didn't realize it was managed by the Corps of Engineers. Have fun and be safe. Supposed to be cold again this weekend.

See my fishing report of Taylorsville lake flooded!

Went to McNeely to try out the boat it worked great. I took my 2nd battery to use for testing best placement. I may remove the small one and just use the monster large one in the photos. Current battery is under the front deck I'm going to post these new wiring photos soon.

( Didn't get to try the outboard, this lake is electric only)
(front seat is way too high! I have yet to return it to bps, the lowest setting I can't touch my feet on the decking and I'm 6 ft tall!)

The front seat does sit high, dosen't it. Any other boats out there today? I'm still planning on fishing McNeely come warm weather. How's the trailer parking area. Plenty of room to turn around if needed?

43* here today and windy again.

Boat looks great! 8)

One other person on mcneely they were cat fishing.

They can park about 15-20 car/truck with trailer. I can turn my car around easy. They have a drive thru system for larger cars/boats.

Most excellent job :D

I like the silver edges(trim), nice touch.

question on the anchor buddy, the mount on the transom, secure?
what I mean is I would worry about hauling it and that sucker commen loose or worse. If it is that good I just might look into invetsing in one also.

man sweet job, hate to see it get dirty huh :lol:
