Our New Boat

Our Uncle Buck's 8' Pond Prowler arrived today. Drew assembled the seats and mounted them into the boat. Then, Neighbor Ernie came over and gave us some advice as he has had a 10' Pond Prowler for many years. He and Drew discussed the Minn Kota trolling motor and the gel cell battery. It is nice to get advice from someone who is an experienced boater and a good jury rigger.

This will be such a different boating experience. No longer will I be able to get into the tight spaces I used to wedge my kayak into, but then again, I won't have to figure out how to get myself out of these situations, either;-) We'll see what I can do with this boat. Time will tell... the maiden voyage will be on Sunday!
