Installed my transom mount stake out, stern eyes and drain plug thanks Jeff for awesome service and support.

Took couple days off and enjoyed some fishing, nothing like bent rods and tight lines.

Two smaller 18 “ fish are yellowtail tuna and the larger 30” salmon is female coming back to lay her eggs.

I did snag a small aluminum cart from local hardware place and made a nice little setup for next time. I was hurting carrying all the gear and fish back to car.

Nice sexy profile!
That bucket, do you move it back a little and use it as a seat when using the motor? It maybe me and my age but not a big fan of standing all the time on a boat.
