sweet 16... just back from tarpon chasing in the Florida panhandle. didn't get a big silver this trip, but fun nonetheless. wasn't the boat's fault. performed flawlessly!

if you go back to the first page, you can see how it is made... the photos that are missing are not from my boat.

we all jump in and swim, as it gets pretty hot out there sometime.

i was thinking of taking a dunk the other day...then a 7' bull shark came around the boat... neeeoooope.

also, we have now learned that we can dry launch and retrieve with the new trailer!

i just back down till the hubs and axle are just out of the water, then a slight push, and off she slides! i do the same on the retrieve, and she winches back up... it's a little more work, with the winching, but it isn't hard. and i'll do anything to keep that axle and hubs out of the salt water!

we even beach launched it using this technique last week and it worked great! exciting.

Squid,

I got a can of the Meguiar's Hot Shine Foam. Is that the stuff you use for your bunks. I wanted to give it a try but wanted to make sure I had the right stuff. I don't want to damage the bottom of the boat. Thanks

Frank

no help for MILES. luckily i had enough cell service to call a buddy, who called one of his buddys to try and find me... meanwhile, i managed to shove the bow around back the way i came in...

they found me, but they couldn't get anywhere near where i was, so we joined up anchor ropes, and he pulled me from wayyyy up ahead near the top of this photo...

it was a dumb move on my part.. i knew the tide was low, and went for it anyway... when i came around that corner, i knew i was in trouble. :)

Any redfish in that ditch off the bow?

I have fished the backend of those trenches a few times myself!

as a matter of fact, there were a few reds in the gr***... walked right up on one, nosing around. heavy sinking crab fly... though, thanks to my photo skills, you can't tell.. lol.
