While all you folks are pulling your boats out of the water, I put mine in.
I typically trailer but there's a bridge with a relatively steep decline and nearly a 90° turn ( on the decline ) in between me and the launch ramp that intimidates me when I've got close to 9000 pounds behind me and only 1 wheel Drive. I'll be storing my boat in the water for the next couple months so I won't miss out on any opportunities to use it because of icy roads.

Decided to keep it and took it off the market!

I got to order new Llebroc helm seats, a custom baitwell, and a whole bunch of other fun stuff to customize it. And probably saved $50K over selling and replacing

These folks want to feel needed just as much as everyone else, and they are. I’m glad you’re letting them weld for you!
Really dude?

What seats and options did you chose? I’m about to order those seats too and fantasized about the electric options...

What is that old coring? Looks like plywood squares? No wonder you need to re-core it.

That's the joy of them, they get hooked on something and you just pull until the hook straightens to release. Bring it back aboard and bend the curve back in, ready for the next use.
