    Mast on foredeck is used for running big planer board lines. The spools for deploying and retrieving the lines are on the base of the post with pulleys at the top. The post telescopes up to 7 ft tall to give a better drop angle out to the boards when deployed out to the sides (usually out 75 to 100 ft) We run a set of the boards, when waves permit, to let us get more lines out and away from the boat.

We are on vacation this week, have fished 4 trips so far, one by ourselves and 3 with vets. One was a vet who has gone a few times before and he brought his 14y/o nephew along. The youngster had never fished for walleye, never been out on Lake Erie or on a big boat, so he was a sponge, taking it all in. He was quiet for all of about 5 minutes before he started with questions and asking 'how to?' And 'what ifs?'... then the bite started and we kept him busy. He will be a good fisherman because he has already mastered the 'big fish' picture pose, lol.

      I give him credit, he wanted to learn everything from setting out the spread to cutting gills and bleeding, he didnt shy away from any of it.
      we got out a couple of new guys and kept them busy also, and introduced a frequent vet guest to another of our favorite riders (Jack) in the hopes they will be able to get out on trips of their own later in the summer on Jack's boat when we aren't available. Fishing has been strong with the best bite still being high in the water column, most of our lures were running 15 to 20 ft deep today in 58 FOW. We had 24 fish boxed in just over 2 hrs, and had thrown back 4 shorts and 4 'junk fish' in the process, along with 2 extras who hooked up before we could bring in all the rods at the end of the day.
      the boat ran without a hitch and remains the star of the show with the riders and at the dock, rarely a trip goes by that we aren't approached at the ramp with questions about the boat.

      we gave the bleeding tank a workout with all the fish processed through it lately. Chris plumbed it to fill and pump out on switches now, so refreshing the water is hassle free.

      The youngster is cool about posting his pictures, said his mom already plastered them all over FB, lol.

        These are some of the views I get to enjoy that make all of the sacrifices and headaches of owning a boat worth every bit of it....
