Freedom Stripper Update

Post by Darrells » Sat May 01, 2010 7:02 pm

Decided to update the boat a little. I used Benjamin Moore Spar Varnish on the boat and have been waiting to see how it held up. The boat has been stored outside in the direct sunlight (Daylight till dark) and the elements since completion (14 months). Well there are no problems after this time so I guess I will continue to buy Varnish locally.

I am adding a depth finder and a Scotty triple rod holder ( two rod holders and the depth finder).

Finished. All I need to do now is get it wet and see how it works.

Not sure about yours but when I was using mine it would show a line of fish ( Nose to tail ) under the boat. YEP...Right.... WRONG .... the longer the line of fish the bigger the Gator.

Found out the fun way , stuck a paddle down there to break the school of fish up ....... :roll:
