 Most important thing about your first boat is safety first all the way . Don't get over confident just feel your way slowly. Start shallow then work your way out as confidence increases. 

Well done on the first . I know the feeling and you just want to get out there. Took me about 3 months of regular fishing just to get out past the 5 fathom bank

 Hi Dale, congrats, if you have any trouble with the motor or leg, when your on thewater, before you start reaching over the back, make sure you have your anchor out, keep the nose of the boat into the the wind & waves, ask me how I know, try a 12.5 hour swim. cheers Don.
