After years of pining and whining, I finally pulled the trigger on a new (to me) Glacier Bay. Same boat as Dave's (BAD KITTY), just 4' shorter. I sea trialed it in NY in the pouring rain and wind on Friday.

I'm stressed and exhausted from 3 days of negotiations (read fights), but it's a done deal.

Congrats! that's a beautiful looking boat. If we ever get together for some wreck fishing you'll have to run 1/2 throttle so I can keep up.icon10.gif

The specs are encouraging, one of the reasons I bought this boat:

That's a rather odd looking fishin' boat. I thought they all had red decks?

Other than that, schweet!
