    David and I bought another boat on Wednesday.
    It is a 15.5 ft. 1988 Aggressor Sport 'n Fish with a 60 HP Mercury motor.

    He was all ready to finish fixing up the FisherMOM boat and decided he didn't
    want to work on another boat. So we are going to sell that one and the little red one that we have
    to help pay off this one. (and to make room in the yard.. 3 boats? lol, NOT!)
    It's nothing big, as we cannot tow much bigger than this, yet it is roomier than the 14 foot MFG.
    We also need to add a fish/depth finder. But it does come with a nice trolling motor on the front!

    here are pictures.
    We are still thinking up names.

    Hope I get to fish more next year... building coops for my chickens and ducks
    ate up most of the free time and nice days that I would have used for fishing this year.
    Not that I minded... [​IMG] But next year........... [​IMG]

    Beautiful boat. So glad to see other women that love to fish! I used to be a die-hard fisherwoman and still go out whenever I get the chance.

    You can call it the "BASS KISSER'" or "KICKIN' BASS" My hubby and I used to fish local tournaments and I always told him that I would like a boat with that name. Well, we got rid or the boats we had and we just go and pond fish now.

    That is a nice boat.
    With all my DH surgeries this year we didn't get to take the boat our very much,
    Here's to hoping we both get out on the water more next year

    thanks! We have all winter to pick names...
    I can add those to the list.

    Fish 'n Chick would work too. [​IMG] both things I love.
    But the boat isn't just mine.

    Heck, I haven't even named my chicken coop either... and now I am building a duck coop. Good thing I'm not pregnant too! oh but wait... we have to chicks due on October 30th! lol!
