If you did’t already know, our boat motor locked up a while back. After a month of searching for a motor or entirely new to us rig, we found a remedy that cured our anxiety. We came across a larger boat that happened to have the same model motor that was originally on our boat. We would have used the entire rig, however the motor is a little small for the boat, so we put that motor on our boat and it is running like a top. The next order of business is to work on the interior to continue restoration of this old Ranger boat.
To celebrate being back on the water, I will be giving away some crappie jigs and chatter-baits. They will all be my favorite colors that I know will catch lots of fish. The next 50 subscribers will be entered into a drawing and the winner have have their choice of 4 chatter-baits, 10 crappie jigs, or a combination of 2 chatter-baits and 5 crappie jigs.
We now have a 1989 Javelin 19′ hull with trailer, 24V trolling motor, and manual jack plate that is set up with Evinrude controls available for whomever has, or can come up with, a 200hp outboard motor to put on it. It does have enough life left in it to cause someone to catch the fishing and boating fever.
