I took the maiden voyage by myself to make sure everything worked! Went out for about a hour or so. Only issue I had/ forgot was I never put cleats on the boat and I went out in 25mph winds! After struggling at the dock with a rope connected only to my bow eye and the wind blowing the boat everywhere, had a guy offer to hold the boat while I backed the trailer in! Other than that everything was great and it fishes perfectly! Caught four while I was out and although it isn't big this was the first fish in the boat since Pop probably landed his last giant cat on a bank line!

Also my brother came to visit from NM and took him out on Pop's Jon! He also called him Pop! His first fish! We proceeded to catch 20 in two hours!

Ok, so it's not DONE! List of things that still need finished
1. Waiting on a fitting for the livewell
2. Electronics still need to be installed
3. Custom cover is getting made as I'm typing this
4. A bushing for the tiller handle so it doesn't just fall down
5. install led lights for deck and hatches

But as for now I can be on the water! I'll keep posting updates as I get them done but I'm not in a huge hurry anymore! Thanks for following along! Tight lines!

Let me know your thoughts!

My daughters and nephew jumping off the swimming rock at my lake. And I'm just kicked back with the Minn Kota on anchor mode!

I've been fishing quite a bit on my boat since completion. I have my electronics installed, livewell works as it should (nice to have pump in and pump out), my lake isn't known for big bass but here is a pic of the best one I've got in the boat so far! I'm taking it musky fishing this weekend. Hopefully more pics then!

Edit- my fish pic won't load for some reason! It was a 4.5lb largemouth

This time turned out awesome. It looks great & is very functional. It's nice to have all the features & benefits of a high dollar bass boat for much less money. Enjoy it & keep making memories. Also, don't forget to let us know if any updates.
