Should be do-able. I'll give you a call later though since we've already drifted the hell out of this thread. :)

Yep... there's a boat waiting patiently in my barn for a date with Dan's tree. ;)

Maybe we can caravan?



I can't wait to see it!

I usually bring my Fire Fly on top of the truck. I've been wondering if I could turtle the 56 Rocket on top of my 58 Vagabond. I brought two Alumacrafts home from Tomahawk WI. 1,100 miles with one turtled on the other. My 58 doesn't have a windshield. I could hardly tell the two boats were back there.

Rick. We are there for the week. Sunday to Sunday or Monday to Sunday. ??
Plan on one overnight on the way. Where overnight? Haven’t researched that yet.

Never bucked before Rick. Always eager to learn something new. Let me know.
My wife and I have a cabin reserved for the fall Arrowhead, so we will be draggin  the Vag down.
 I take it there is an underground boat transfer happening.

It'll be getting some love this summer but no. Maybe next year.  I may need to have you come up and buck some rivets if you're up for it though.

I will be bringing a boat down there this fall, just not one of mine. :)

Is that boat going to be ready for Arrowhead in the fall Rick?

I had big plans for gauges too, but the more I look at it, I prefer the minimalist look.  Just can't bring myself to cut any more holes after all the effort spent patching them up...

This is probably not too helpful but on my Hawk I used the dash storage opening for my gauge pod.  I am using a newer four stroke with tilt/trim and the control unit came with wiring for a tachometer and T&T gauge.  I had the fuel gauge so I tried to match the others with it.
