    Boat plan for 2020

    Hey guys,
    It's the off-season... That means time to plot and plan for a new/different boat.

    What's your plan for 2020?

    Mine is to get rid of a 14' fiberglass fast/duckboat and get into an 18' or so boat that will fit the family....

    I *really* want to keep things simple and reliable... But you know how that goes when you use the word "boat"...

    I will stick with my 2000 Lund 1650 Angler SS for a few more years.
    I am still working on my 1999 Lund WC-14 as my permanent South Carolina boat. I have it partially wired for navigation lights, trolling motor and depth sounder. Unfortunately, winter has settled in and I am done till spring. In the meantime, I am in search of a 25hp long shaft to replace the 9.9 Mercury that's on it now. It's just to small for this wide, heavy 14 footer.

    The Gene Pool is in need of a lot of Chlorine!

    Better yet, drain the entire pool!

    Bought a Cobia 24' CC last fall. Leased a house with a dock in Pamlico County, NC today!! Will be there on the first of April. I guess that is my plan.

    If I got a boat it would be the cheapest one I could find just in case it sank with all my guns in it.

    My plan is to save money this winter so I can keep the gas tank in the boat filled this summer. It is a 29 foot Velocity with a 502 putting out 560 hp. I feel the need for speed. LOL

    I don't plan to buy one this year. I have owned boats both small and large and the deal is to get one that will fish and play where you are wanting to use it. To big for where you go and you will be limited to what you can do. To small and it my not be safe or have enough room for where you want to use it. I know that seems simple but many people buy a boat and then find it is not really what they should have for what they are doing or where they are fishing.

    Happened to me... TWICE! Lost EVERY gun I ever owned!
