    Won't happen.
    Travis, Buch, LBJ, etc...
    Maybe prespawn on LA in the spring. But, doubtfull. I'll be chasing white bass on Travis, Buch and LBJ!
    I've given up chasing LMB for table fare and safer, more peaceful waters!!!

    Man she is in great shape for her age. Reminds me of a stripper I knew in Killeen. Lol
    Nice rig bro, look forward to seeing her throw a wake on Travis Sunday mornings.

    I usually don't fish weekends.
    I enjoy the peace, tranquility and loneliness of weekdays!
    I'm leaving that stripper part ALONE!! Which, had I done YEARS AGO, I'd have had many more boats or probably another garage full of HDs instead of just 3!! And it wasn't from stuffing cash in the slot. Their extra curricular habits are EXPENSIVE!!!

    Today was slow going. All I'll say is WIRING!
    Went and got a couple battery boxes, they barely fit and got one of the AGM 27 series batteries installed for the TM. I'll pick up another battery later. The lids just won't fit! Still looks messy, but it'll tidy up once the other battery is and wiring is complete for the TM, (2) Hummingbird 998 & 581, and the charger.

    Had some wire loom, so I worked on this. Had enough to make it to the throttle. Will pick up some more to make it the rest of the way under console. Once all done, I'll put the rod holders back on. It was just too much trying to work around them.
    140907_0001.jpg
    Zip tied this up, so it's out of the way of one of the fuel hatches.
    140907_0000.jpg
    Put my old cooler in that I use to hold oil stuff and some misc tools.
    140907_0004.jpg
    Installed the Ram Mount base and ran the wiring for the Hummingbird 998!

    Crawling around and fishing wire, looming and zip tieing wears me out. Done for today.
    Headed to TPWD tomorrow to see how registering boat and motor goes.

    ANDDD, I wanted to come in, relax, get a shower and see JJ and Romo FAIL!! If Romo could find a way to stop trying to be the glory boy the Girls would have a chance. Well, kind of, but not totally until JJ goes back where he came from. I'm not holding my breath on either count! So y'all should see me fishing the end of the week or next!!!

    Man...I didn't know there was so much that could be done to a perfect boat. hahahahahahhahahahahah

    Kinda what we are going thru on the new one...don't like this, like that, gotta change this!!

    Now when you go to launch her next week....just remember the immortal words of Captain Ahab....."Plug in?"

    (That's personal experience speaking!!!!!!!!!)

    Ron,
    I've not found anything that would have kept anyone from catching fish out of this AWESOME boat!! The more I do, The MORE I like it!!!
    I've forgotten the plug myself. I'm always triple checking that I took the straps off, put the plug in, hooked the fuel line up & the kill lanyard is on the tiller handle.
    No tiller handle, I'm going to be a mess now!!!
    THANKS for a GREAT BOAT!! AND AN AWESOME fishing trip! Was great to meet you and Candy! We'll have dinner somewhere when you get down here!!
    Oh, I never did get to see your new one. Guess it'll be when we're side by side catching fish this winter!!!

    Well, Romo didn't let me down! Threw another game! Literally!
    Wish this loser would go back to his loser dump, where he came from.

    Made a run to TPWD this morning=SUCCESS! I got registration stickers and boat numbers. Should receive titles in 4-8 weeks!
    Then I ran over on Airport blvd and picked me up a license plate!
    Almost home, oh crap, detour. NETTLES props! Mr. JT Nettels himself pressed a new ring on the new prop that Ron & Shane had put on the boat. $11 & change. He said my prop had no "cupping, what's it on?" He said it'll work for now. I found out he can rebuild the 2 old props Ron left in the boat for a fair price! And he'll cup them for me. Had no idea, he explained it all! Something about less slip, more go, I'm not racing, jumping up on plane. He's the prop guy!!
    Came home, put the prop on!
    Put the registration stickers on.
    Mounted a license plate.
    Mounted the Bird GPS puck and Transducer. And got it wired to the one TM battery. Resulting in this!!
    140908_0001.jpg
    Just couldn't resist, so I changed some mounts off my other boat seats and ended up with this!
    140908_0000.jpg
    And I dug out the compartment plug that I bought with my NOCO battery charger. It fit right in the hole that was already there. Now to figure out how to plug that other hole. Ron left me a 2 bank Cabelas charger, so that'll stick with the TM batteries.
    140908_0002.jpg
    My three bank NOCO will go in the back for the starting battery and the shad tank battery. I'll still have a bank free.
    Tomorrow. I'll tidy up the Bird wiring with zip ties. Make a run to Academy for some boat numbers. I picked up 150' of anchor line and a section of coated chain and only 1 shackle for the line to chain. I'll pick up another for the chain to anchor tomorrow.
    Thursday is a couple other projects around the house.
    Friday is FISHING!!! Probably just going to go to Travis for the maiden voyage in Texas!!
