Default A Boats Second Life

Capt Dave purchased this boat from Capt Brady Bounds (who is still guiding in a bigger boat). It will be transformed into a crappie/catfish fishing machine for its second life on the Potomac.

This what it looks like with the rear deck removed before Capt Dave started the transformation.
First and most frustrating step was to get every light on the trailer working for inspection. After a couple new wires fished down the trailer and the lights working the battery on the truck went dead.. jump start the truck and bingo all the lights work. Half a day on your back on cement takes it's toll on a body.
Next comes fitting the cooler into the rear deck.

Then once that is done comes the task of removing the old electronic and transducer and installing a new Ray marine Dragonfly system.

Then comes the task of rod holder mounts with angles and clearances measured twice before holes are made.

More later
