Nice tub Wade !

I've got a 510 Freestyle and have had plenty of fun in it, even trips out to the wrecks and FADS..

Get the clears and a bimini and it'll be a nice dry ride !!

 

Fish today.....work tomorrow !

Thanks everyone!  Yes Kane looking to get a rocket launcher and clears put on, just trying to fing a place Nor. 

Big John -  the motor is a 75 merc 4 stroke  done 150hrs

Rosco-  Not sure of a name yet..maybe " Recession Buster "or something ha ha. The last boat was called the wedding fund. So Russ and Sandy think i should call this one the" Retirement Fund"    If a big fan of clive waterhouse so  "clive" wouldnt be out of the question as well
