Your wife must have been some kind of mad at you to make you stay in the garage that long. :)

Nice work.

I had never heard of a bouy winch. That's just downright convenient. (That's the whole reason I bring people with me!) LOL
That is a cadillac crappie boat with some true redneck innovation.

I love that dropped deck and plexiglass barrier below the windshield for running in cold weather. Nice work!

Jimp, got it from BPS, mount on passenger side on side deck,if you look at picture 6 of console you can see the mount. On drivers side, made a L shape bracket behind throttle on side deck. We love it , use it in the hot months,before I did some of the newer work. By the way guys don't take much to get me out of the house.LOL It takes much to keep me in....Nice place to go when wife is mad at me. BOY, it sure looks like she was mad for a looong time..LOL

hey genec i would like to put two acnhor winch on my boat when i read reviews on them everyone talk bad about what is your reviews on them.

willbreaku, put them on in summer ,they work good however only used them a few times. Glad I have them and will use them more but I move much and love to use cable TM to stay in place and I mainly cast and jig and when I jig I do not think I could get right over that small sweet spot with anchor,be great for minnows. Will use it some on windy days for casting if I think that many fish are there and I will be there long. Did not say this to disapoint you, as I said glad I have them and will find more ways to use them
