Big Projects

My winter project has been customizing a raft boat for the small ponds and rivers around here. Now that spring is (supposed to be) here, I am getting itchy to try it out. It's almost done. I just have to glue the indoor/outdoor carpet to the floorboard and install that, and I'm done. Today I fixed the transducer for the fishfinder/gps to a pipe I fashioned since it can't be screwed into the hull like it would a fiberglass, wood or metal boat. I don't know how well the inflatable boat will hold up to the rigors of fishing shallow waters, but it has been a real learning experience creating the special additions.
