Default I bought a new boat

I picked it up in Arkansas. Just arrived home. Nothing special, just a 16' long jon boat. It's 6' wide. I had a 25 HP Mercury motor put on it. And it's sitting on a nice trailer. The Mercury motor was made in Japan. 3 cylinders, 4 cycle, Electronic ignition and electronic fuel injection. It's a lot easier to start than those old Mercuries.

It should be a lot easier for me to launch by myself than my older bigger boat that I sold. I want to go crappie fishing in a month or two. I haven't done that in a few years. I might even head North and do some walleye fishing.

I'll be doing some modifications to it and will post pictures later.

I'm having a hard time to go to sleep, so I think I'll go out in my garage and start working on it.
