Curmudgeon, the boat was for sale at the start of the year. That's when I bought it. Need to do a little more fishing and saving before a boat upgrade. Power troll permit will be before that though. Give me a few years ;)
Thanks hans!
Anyone else out there with first year pics?

Hi Rob, This looks just like yours. http://juneau.craigslist.org/boa/4760598680.html
Sister boats maybe?
I remember seeing your boat out in Cross Sound a couple years ago. Previous owner used to tie up at the Shoreline Barge often and I chatted with him several times. Looked like a lot of recent work was done to upgrade it. Nice!

I like the mast light pic. I was holding my breath from here. I hate replacing mast lights.
