After a year of debating what to do with regards to my guide business and going back and forth over what boat to buy, this weekend I pulled the trigger on a 2003 RF 18 with an '08 F115 with 200 hours on it. Purchased from a very nice guy, 2nd owner, garage kept in Jacksonville. It has recessed trim tabs, 5 month old Simrad GO7 XSE, stereo, new prop, gorgeous Sea Foam green and in very good shape with a few minor blemishes. Splashing her tomorrow in the Crystal Coast, NC to chase winter reds for the next 2-3 days with a close friend. As for what I need to do to the boat here is the list... -Buff and wax to remove dark staining. -Replace the older Minn Kota trolling motor with an i-pilot. -Reattach the poling platform. The previous owner unbolted it on the top side and had the back brackets cut so the boat could fit in his garage. I'll have to find someone who can do the welding. -Replace the Yamaha gauges. They are cracked and faded and look like hell. Can barely read them. Previous owner suggested using the Simrad and get a cable to hook to the motor for all of the typical info used on the gauges. Might be cheaper -Replace the intake seal for the live well. -Replace the trailer bunks. -Rewire trailer. -Add a 4th battery. -Replace the old carpet under the gunnels with Sea Dek or similar substitute. I was wondering if anyone had done this prior? I think the faux teak would look great with the sea foam green hull. I'd also consider putting some blue LED lighting under there. Any tips would be much appreciated if anyone has done anything like this. -Name her! I'll be registering the boat in Virginia and running trips in the Chesapeake Bay as well as some in NC. I perused the forum a lot the past week and gained a lot of information from previous discussions, so thank you all for the advice. I will keep you updated on progress on the updates I will be making. If anyone has any tips / suggestions on anything else I should consider, I would love to hear them. Thanks! -Capt. Chris
