    Was going to buy a motor for my old 84 monark to replace the 30 hp 2 stroke mariner I been using for years. My wife has been on me wanting me to buy a boat her and my little boy can ride in without having to sit in the back by the loud motor. She is out of town working right now and when she comes home this weekend she will be in for a big surprise. My little 5 yr old boy's favorite color is red so I'm gonna be batting 1000.
    Had to drive to Denham Springs, Louisiana to pick it up. Only one in stock in the whole South.

    You need to paint your wife's name on the back of the boat. All boats need a name, right?

    Thanks to all of you. This time of year you have to wait a long time to get this model boat if you order one. Springfield told me 16 weeks at least and most Bass Pro dealers told me they have no idea when a boat I order would come in. I found this one right out of Baton Rouge last week and made a deposit and picked it up yesterday. 4 1/2 hr drive down there aint too bad. Baton Rouge is terrible to drive in so I came back up I-55 and cut across to Hamburg.

    Nice! If I were to ever buy a boat I think that would be what I would get.

    Plus the new 4 strokes are so much more quiet and easy to live with than the old 2 strokes. Still like the smell of a 2 stroke though.

    Time to catch some fish and make memories.

    The wife and I went out in white oak lake wednesday and we could actually motor along at any speed and talk in a normal tone and had no trouble hearing each other. She loves sitting beside me with our 5 yr old son between us. The boat is so much more stable than my old mon ark and is so smooth up on plane at full speed. I guess it seems like a really big step up from what we are use to.
    We love it
