    Your Ultra is probably a heck of a lot better on fuel than a boat. Unless its tiny or electric powered.

    A friend has a party barge, We go out once in a while. Got a grill right on board. What a hoot and Heck of a lot of fun fishing off them. But really a PITA to launch. If we stayed on this lake all the time. I'd love one. But we move to a different lake each weekend. He's only got a 16 footer and gets like 7 adults on it with a few kids. Really no all that expensive either.

    Nice. We sold our project boat when we bought the Cottage, decided one project was enough. Would have looked like this when done (Custom Craft Sea Ray fin boat):

    That's an old one! Reminds me of my first 1962 aqua-swan runabout with a 35hp mercury. we had a ton of fun with that boat.

    We fish mostly for largemouth bass(catch and release). But sometimes fish for trout or should I say dinner. ;-)

    Been busy tinkering with the boat and getting it on the water as much as possible. Finally took the camera and took this. Just before he hit the throttle. I strap in when he's drivin! !!

    Good sailing out here. Nice steady 15-20 knot winds.This is last Saturday. The yacht club lucked out with a good day. On a no wind day this can be a sad sight.
