View Full Version : Got A NEW BOAT !!! Whoooweee

Well I been saving my pennies for a few years now and finally was able to buy a me a brand new boat. Now I shouldn't need another one till I am to old to fish :D

It's a 16' Polar Kraft 160 FF, 50 HP 2-stroke Yamaha, 2 Lowrance depth finders, 40 lb. thrust Minn Kota foot control trolling motor, 2 live wells the front well has a built in minnow bucket, rod locker, lots of storage. I have fished out of it the past 2 days and have to say that it makes my fishing time more enjoyable due to the comfort of the boat. I have been fishing out of a 14' x36" boat for several years, so this is a big change for me.
Anyway heres a couple of pics and BTW caught 9 Thursday and 13 today!:D

That's a fine boat. I hope she serves you well.

Where is the fish slime? A boat aint a boat until it has a good coating of fish slime.

Nice rig ! I know you will enjoy it.

Thanks guys. You all can relate to my excitement about the new boat so that makes it all the better. Just like a kid with a brand new bike, I am grinnin' ear to ear and walkin around with my chest poked out like a banty rooster...LOL!!

Thanks again

Nice Ride
I know you'll love it. I've been real pleased with my MV 160 SC, Polar Kraft.
40, 4 stroke.
Mine is now 4 years old. I think they still use the same hull with a few changes on the top side.

Take care of it and it'll take care of you...
