So, FedEx delivered my boat Saturday afternoon, AFTER the rain started. Sunday was Mother’s day, and we had family plans. I’ve been putting in some extra hours at work lately, and I hardly ever use all of my vacation days…. So, I took the day off today and headed down to Fort Yargo State Park to try it out. I chose Fort Yargo for a few reasons: 1) It’s close to home, 2) it’s a smaller lake (260 acres) that they don’t allow anything with more than a 10hp motor in & 3) there are a lot of geocaches in the park I need to find! (I’m also a geocacher).
I’m going to do another post as a “Review” of the boat. But, I can say that, for the price, I’m pleased with it. There were some issues and I had to take out and put back in several times to get the seat situated right (I’ll detail that in the other post). I think I have those resolved, for now.
Here’s a map and a track: GOOGLE MAPS
I put up an album of pictures on my Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10151437343778616.1073741825.612038615&type=1&l=f7f172e818
