ya, your other boat, was a bit small? you will enjoy this one a lot more!! you can go a lot more places than the other one you had, and be a lot safer!! someone said something about a live well? you don't need that, unless you plan to fish tournaments, forget about it, don't need it, just an ice chest, with a little ice, cause you gonna eat them suckers anyway, that's what i do! i use my live well for storage! just be safe and obey the rules, you won't regret it!! good luck, hope you catch more fish than me? nice boat, just maintain it, like you should! just an opinion, flush the engine, not only in salt water, but in fresh water too, will keep the cooling system cleaner, get the mud out!! you will have a lot less troubles later! you might want to ask the guy, you bought it from, when is the last time he changed the water pump? oh, by the way, you might want to pull the wheels and check your bearings, before you take off? the most neglected thing is bearings! even if they have buddy bearings, in my opinion, the inside bearings, don't get any grease? the worst thing about any kind of trailer, is burning a bearing on the road, what a terrible thing!!! do it at your house and not the side of the highway, a lot easier!! spend a little money now, or a lot more later and a lot more trouble!!
